Splunk Search

How can we check the number of searches ran by user?

Path Finder

How can we check the number of searches ran by user?
We tried installing Search Activity app but a majority of the users are not having LDAP authentication. Hence the app is not getting configured.
Please let us know if there are any queries which will help in finding out the searches ran by user.

Thanks in Advance.

Hi @abhijit_mhatre,
Try this:

index=_audit action=search info=granted search=* 
     NOT "search_id='scheduler" 
     NOT "search='|history" 
     NOT "user=splunk-system-user" 
     NOT "search='typeahead" 
     NOT "search='| metadata type=* | search totalCount>0"
 | fields user, search, _time, search_id
 | eval search_id = trim(replace(search_id, "\'", ""))
