Reporting

Query about saved searches

SplunkBase,

The following question is partially out of curiosity...

When a search string is saved as a report (e.g. a pie chart), where in the conf files is the information dictating the chart/report type used. I looked in the savedsearches.conf file, but there was no reference to the chart type, only to the search string, and some alert based options.

I have flicked through the rest of the App ($SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<app_name/) directory but could not find a reference to the chart type, etc.

Apologies if I'm asking an obvious question, just haven't referenced this before.

Regards,

MHibbin

It's stored in personal viewstates.conf files under etc/users/, which are referenced by the vsid property in the savedsearches.conf file. However, these can (and should) be overridden by explicit setting if you use the search on an XML dashboard.
