App Exporter

When using "App Exporter" where does the app go after you hit the "export" button. It doesn't look like the app is working. Do I open a folder and hit ctrl V or something?

Thank you in advance.

Hi kennethhartley1,

It's I again 🙂

The app hits the REST endpoint /services/apps/local/$$title$$/package to create the app package, and https://$row.splunk_server$:$row.mgmt_port$/static/app-packages/$row.name$.spl to download the package to your computer.

Try to do it with an account that has the admin role to be sure to have the correct capabilities. Nevertheless I summon @martin_mueller the creator of the app just in case he needs to add something.

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

That path is burned into the REST endpoint used by the app: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.1.2/RESTREF/RESTapps#apps.2Flocal.2F.7Bname.7D.2Fpacka...

What version are you on?

Correct. On the server file system they sit in etc/system/static/app-packages or something similar, should be mentioned in the package endpoint rest docs.

Whups, put that question in the wrong spot. Here it is:

Thank you for such a quick response, gentlemen. I am still having trouble, though.

Perhaps it is because I am running standalone machines with no network access and no LAN but the etc/system/static path ends with no apppackages folder/file. Could app exporter be creating the package somewhere else?

I am using my admin account and have mostly all default settings in my Splunk instances.
