ui-prefs.conf

The following are the spec and example files for ui-prefs.conf.

ui-prefs.conf.spec

#   Version 8.0.8
#
# This file contains possible attribute/value pairs you can use to configure
# the ui for a view.
#
# There is a ui-prefs.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default. To set
# custom configurations, place a ui-prefs.conf in
# $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/. To set custom configuration for an app, place
# ui-prefs.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<app_name>/local/.  For examples, see
# ui-prefs.conf.example. You must restart Splunk software to enable configurations.
#
# To learn more about configuration files (including precedence), see the
# documentation located at
# http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/Aboutconfigurationfiles

GLOBAL SETTINGS


# 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, settings are combined. In the case of
#     multiple definitions of the same attribute, the last definition in the
#     file wins.
#   * If a setting is defined at both the global level and in a specific
#     stanza, the value in the specific stanza takes precedence.

[<stanza name>]
* The name of the xml view file
