Nevermind, I think he is doing this because he's a sales guy and has to demo Splunk in front of an audience. I guess not necessary a bad thing.

Nothing questionable, just a shared login that I needed to clear out the search history from.

What questionable searches have you been running recently that require you to clear your history? Should an ER for a "private searching" feature be filed?
