Increasing lines in view source?


My question is a duplicate of this one, but since I couldn't comment there, I figured I'd ask again:

When I click view source on an event that has a large number of lines (for example, a Java error with 200+ lines), the view source screen only shows first 100 lines of the original log.

This is actually listed as a feature with 4.x Splunk. Is there a way to increase this so when I click on view source I see the whole original log?

According to the only answer, this is a bug that should be fixed in v4.1.3. However, I'm running v4.1.4 (82143) and still cannot see more than 100 lines in Show Source.

Please see if this Q&A helps. I tried and it seems to be working. You need to have admin right. Please note that I found the show_source.xml in the default directory rather than local directory indicated in the answer.

Weird that you cant comment. Looks like this is an as yet unfixed bug. Filing but would be ideal to have customers behind it if you still care (just open a case with www.splunk.com/support)
