How many indexes can be specified for srchIndexesAllowed in authorize.conf?

I wonder if there is a limit on the number of indexes specified in srchIndexesAllowed of authorize.conf. We currently have 80 indexes for one customer and the customer can't search some of their indexes. Can we use wildcard character in the index names? Can I check the list of indexes via the btool command?

Based on the authorize.conf documentation it seems that you are able to utilize wildcards when specifying srchIndexesAllowed. You can also check the list of indexes along with a significant portion of other useful data by running | rest /services/data/indexes
