Splunk Search

Limit an Apps Search Context

Path Finder

I'm hoping to create apps for each of our departments that only allow them to search specific data from splunk. This Document covers how to limit users to a specific app or apps, however, in that app how do I limit what data they can search on. We dump all of our event log data to the same index, so in a perfect world, these would not be per-index limits, but rather masked search terms that prefix their searches.

In that case you'd probably want to create several roles for the various departments. When you create a role you can have search limitations prepended for that role. Look in Manager > Access Controls > Roles. You can then assign users to that role.
