Other Usage

Search results of savedsearch displaying multiple times using search command in CLI


Hi everyone,

Screenshot of issue:







Here are my setup with my current issue:

  • I'm running this search in a clustered environment
  • I'm running Splunk 8.0.5
  • Using search command in CLI
  • Running search command to display results of savedsearch 

Attached below is the search command in CLI I used:

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk search "|savedsearch TestReport" -maxout 0 -auth test:test


Additionally, below is the content of such savedsearch:

index=myindex(sourcetype=sourcetype1 OR sourcetype=sourcetype2) _index_earliest="01/17/2020:22:00:00" _index_latest="01/17/2020:22:59:00" | stats count


I need the search result of CLI to display once since I'm using its content to populate another csv which I will use for another purpose.


Kindly let me know if there is something that I need to reconfigure in my environment. Thank you!

There is an option that disables preview.

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk search "|savedsearch TestReport" -maxout 0 -auth test:test -preview false
