Modifying Searches Shared By Me in the Log Monitoring Application

Only the owner of the shared search or a user with administrator rights can update a shared search.

You can make the following changes to a search you shared:

  • Add or remove users
  • Stop sharing your search

Note: Modifying a shared search does not affect the original search that you shared. The modified search can be shared as a new search.
