Alerting

Why am I seeing this error in my local.meta file app inspect?

Hi

I have this error in my AppInspect Report:

Do not supply a local.meta file- put all settings in default.meta. File: metadata/local.meta.

In my app, under folder metadata, I can see the two files:
local.meta
default.meta

Which place of default.meta do I put the local.meta content, start or end ?
Can it be deleted?
Is it recreated during app work-update?
Is there a documentation describing this?

best regards
Altin

It doesn’t really matter.

you can just copy content of local.meta and paste at the end of default.meta file.

you are running Splunk in linux.

just do below:

cat local.meta >> default.meta

rm -rf local.meta

If this helps, give a like below.

you are not supposed to keep anything in local directory or local.meta in metadata folder/directory.

you can copy all your local.meta to default.meta  So the error will go.

or matters not?
