How to search for dashboards and reports created by a specific user/owner?

New Member

Hi Team,

I was looking for reports, searches, saved searches, and Dashboards created by specific users/owners.
Some of the users/owners left the company, but reports and dashboards still exist in Splunk. So, I need to find those dashboard and reports.

Thanks,

Try something like this

| rest /servicesNS/PutUserNameHere/-/data/ui/views | table author title eai:acl.app | eval Type="Dashboard" | append [| rest /serviceNS/PutUserNameHere/-/saved/searches | table author title eai:acl.app | eval Type="SavedSearch/Report"] | rename author as Owner title as Name eai:.acl.app as AppName

Seems like permission issue only. Check with your Splunk admin if you've permissions to run REST command and if not (surely) then request to get that.

Are you trying to run the command of Splunk Cloud trial OR does your user role has permission to run REST command?? (I guess you need adminallobjects capability)

Thanks for the Query, worked great - I just found two typos:

| rest /servicesNS/-/-/data/ui/views | table author title eai:acl.app | eval Type="Dashboards" | append [| rest /servicesNS/-/-/saved/searches | table author title eai:acl.app | eval Type="SavedSearch/Report"] | rename author as Owner title as Name eai:acl.app as AppName

Go to
1-Settings-->All Configuration
2-In the All configuration page , select All in App context dropdown and your user name in Owner dropwdown then you will see the list of reports and dashboards that user has created
