Is there setting to always enable auto_pause option?

In 2010, the following Answers refered that there isn't a setting to always enable the auto_pause option, and that it is necessary to put this setting value in the URL every time.

Is this still correct today?
Or is there setting to always activate?

You can do this, in case of a savedsearch. Please refer the doc https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.6/Admin/Savedsearchesconf

dispatch.auto_pause = <int>
* If specified, the search job pauses after this many seconds of inactivity. (0
  means never auto-pause.)
* To restart a paused search job, specify unpause as an action to POST
  search/jobs/{search_id}/control.
* auto_pause only goes into effect once. Unpausing after auto_pause does not
  put auto_pause into effect again.
* Default is 0.

I'm not sure your exactly whether you want to do at user level or Role level. Hope it helps

Thank you for comment!

But I want to use this function in normal search page, not in simpleXML.
