Splunk Search

What is the difference between views and searches in uri after an app name?

Explorer

In an uri of any saved search at some places there is '/views/' and '/searches/' after an app name. I want to know the difference between views and searches in uri. What do they signify? Is this related to Dashboards and alerts?

I believe they are the URI of the management pages for User Interfaces (one with /views/, from Settings->User Interfaces->Views) and Saved searches (one with /searches/, from Settings-> Searches, Reports, and Alerts). We can say for sure if you post some sample values for the URI (mask any sensitive information).

Thank you, this clears lot of things to me.
As an example lets suppose below is the uri and I want to know whether this is an Alert or is a dashboard.

en-US/splunkd/__raw/servicesNS/nobody/search/saved/searches/Error%20Alerts%20for%20%20XYZ%20Application

Thanks

Anything with URI of type `search/saved/searches´ is a saved search and could be a report or alert.

okay and anything with uri of type 'data/ui/views' could be a dashboard, like :

/en-US/splunkd/__raw/servicesNS/juhi/someservice/data/ui/views/usage_by_host
