Splunk User Behavior Analytics

Admin user can’t access alerts with “private” sharing

New Member


Kind of a splunk newbie here.

I’m attempting to setup monitoring on user alerts with long runtimes.

I logged on as the admin user, and attempted to query the _audit index. Unfortunately, I’m only able to see searches whose privacy is set to either “Global” or “App”. 

To verify that behavior, I logged on as a simple user and created a private alert. When I searched for that alert from the admin user, I couldn’t find it. 

My current “admin” role settings only inherits from “power”. 
My “admin” user has only the “admin” as its selected role. 
Tries to play around with both of those settings, to no avail. 

Any recommendations?
