After creating macros in Splunk Web on a search head, where do I find the path for macros.conf?

I have an app X configured in a search head and there are some x,y,z macros created in Splunk Web. Now I want to open the macros.conf on the backend.

What is the possible path to find the macros.conf?

Is there any grep command to search for macros.conf in $Splunk_Home directory?

Can I find it in search head or indexer?

If the macros are created as private for user, you'll find them in $Splunk_Home/etc/users/<<UserWhoCreatedMacro>>/X/local/macros.conf

If the macros created as shared within app OR global , you'll find them in $Splunk_Home/etc/apps/X/local/macros.conf
