Splunk Search

Reg. Correlation searches. Do they have to be configured in Splunk Ent. & ES? Could they be only on one of these 2 ?

Reg. Correlation searches. Do they have to be configured in Splunk Ent. & ES? Could they be only on one of these 2 ? And reused in the whole environment? If can be on one side? How do I benefit across the whole environment?

Correlation searches are an ES concept.  Outside of ES they're called "scheduled searches".  Whatever they're called and wherever they exist they still have access to all of your indexed data.

What are you doing with them that they need to be in both the ES search head and the non-ES search head?  IMO, running the same search in two search heads just doubles the load on the indexers.
