Version 8.0.6 This file explains how to format viewstates. To use this configuration, copy the configuration block into viewstates.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
Use the [default] stanza to define any global settings. * You can also define global settings outside of any stanza, at the top of the file. * Each conf file should have at most one default stanza. If there are multiple default stanzas, attributes are combined. In the case of multiple definitions of the same attribute, the last definition in the file wins. * If an attribute is defined at both the global level and in a specific stanza, the value in the specific stanza takes precedence.
* Auto-generated persistence stanza label that corresponds to UI views * The <view_name> is the URI name (not label) of the view to persist * if <view_name> = "*", then this viewstate is considered to be 'global' * The <viewstate_id> is the unique identifier assigned to this set of parameters * <viewstate_id> = '_current' is a reserved name for normal view 'sticky state' * <viewstate_id> = '_empty' is a reserved name for no persistence, i.e., all defaults <module_id>.<setting_name> = <string> * The <module_id> is the runtime id of the UI module requesting persistence * The <setting_name> is the setting designated by <module_id> to persist
