The following are the spec and example files for user-prefs.conf.
# This file describes some of the settings that are used, and # can be configured on a per-user basis for use by the Splunk Web UI. # Settings in this file are requested with user and application scope of the # relevant user, and the user-prefs app. # Additionally, settings by the same name which are available in the roles # the user belongs to will be used at lower precedence. # This means interactive setting of these values will cause the values to be # updated in # $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/users/user-prefs/<username>/local/user-prefs.conf where # <username> is the username for the user altering their preferences. # It also means that values in another app will never be used unless they # are exported globally (to system scope) or to the user-prefs app. # In practice, providing values in other apps isn't very interesting, since # values from the authorize.conf roles settings are more typically sensible # ways to defaults for values in user-prefs.
[general] default_namespace = <app name> * Specifies the app that the user will see initially upon login to the Splunk Web User Interface. * This uses the "short name" of the app, such as launcher, or search, which is synonymous with the app directory name. * Splunk defaults this to 'launcher' via the default authorize.conf tz = <timezone> * Specifies the per-user timezone to use * If unset, the timezone of the Splunk Server or Search Head is used. * Only canonical timezone names such as America/Los_Angeles should be used (for best results use the Splunk UI). * Defaults to unset. install_source_checksum = <string> * Records a checksum of the tarball from which a given set of private user configurations was installed. * Analogous to <install_source_checksum> in app.conf.
[default] # Additional settings exist, but are entirely UI managed. <setting> = <value>
# Version 6.3.5 # # This is an example user-prefs.conf. Use this file to configure settings # on a per-user basis for use by the Splunk Web UI. # # To use one or more of these configurations, copy the configuration block # into user-prefs.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/. You must restart # Splunk to enable configurations. # # To learn more about configuration files (including precedence) please see # the documentation located at # http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/Aboutconfigurationfiles # Note: These are examples. Replace the values with your own # customizations. # EXAMPLE: Setting the default timezone to GMT for all Power and User role # members. [role_power] tz = GMT [role_user] tz = GMT
