Splunk Trial to Free - Data disappeared

New Member

Hi , I switched from Trial to Free and all my dashboard / indexes gone.
seems those are associated with particular user and that user is locked after trial to free conversion.

how to get all data / indexes / dashboard back in my free version ?

Splunk free version doesn't have user authentication feature available, hence any user specific things will be gone/locked out. In Trial version, change the ownership of those knowledge artifacts to nobody,, so that they'll still be available.
