Search & Report dropdown list limit

kmattern

Is it possible to limit the contents of the Search & Reports dropdown list in any view to just the saved searches for the currently logged in user?

I want to set up a system where each user will see his/her saved searches no others.

It's changed to 250 due to slow page loading time issues.
You can work out a better number by changing the below - please be aware that any upgrade could overwrite your change;

Source file: $SPLUNK_HOME/lib/python2.7/site-packages/splunk/appserver/mrsparkle/controllers/admin.py

Find the code as below;


# per SPL-24818 ... cap large user environments to 250... should we try to cache this or do something smarter here?

pwnrList = en.getEntities("authentication/users", count=250, search="roles=*")

Any user can only see Splunk objects (saved searches/reports) to which he has permission to read. E.g objects which the user created, object to which Read=Everyone is given in sharing permission. You want to limit the dropdown values to just the object created by user?
This should be sufficient to show all the savedsearches to which the user has access under "Searches & Reports" menu.

<nav>
    <view name="flashtimeline" default='true' />
    <collection label="Views">
        <view source="unclassified" />
        <divider />
    </collection>
    <collection label="Searches &amp; Reports">       
        <saved source="unclassified" />
    </collection>
</nav>
