I have an apps which has views, saved searches, field extractions and macros. Is it possible to list all the objects of an app using splunk search??

Basically I want to know if Splunk stores the app's metadata in any of the indexes.
Thanks in advance.

Splunk does not store knowledge objects in any index. Knowledge objects are contained in .conf files and .xml files that are stored in the directory hierarchy under $SPLUNK_HOME/etc

Shameless promotion: there is an app on Splunkbase called X-ray Splunk which collects information about the knowledge objects and presents it in a variety of dashboards. It doesn't seem to work yet on all OSes, but it is free.

Also, from the Manager->Apps menu you can click the "view objects" link and sort the objects under that app.

Thanks for you response roberts. I was looking for more of a search query to list that which can be displayed over a dashboard.
