srchMaxTime default unit in authorize.conf

Hello guys,

is it OK to use srchMaxTime = 9000, it looks like it does 9000 seconds?

In authorize.conf doc it asks for srchMaxTime = <integer><unit>

We use Splunk Enterprise 7.1.4

Thanks.

If the docs call for <integer><units> then I think it is not OK to use just <integer>. If you want a 90-second timeout then use srchMaxTime = 90s.

We always used without unit and seemed to work anyway, thanks 🙂
