Hello,

I am trying to upload my app and I am getting this response:
in app.conf must match the root directory name of the app

My app.conf is:

Splunk app configuration file

[package]
id = SplunkForAerohive

[ui]
is_visible = 1
is_manageable = true
label = SplunkForAerohive

[launcher]
author = David Rivas
description = App for Aerohive APs devices
version = 1.0

The file is placed on folder: /opt/splunk/etc/apps/SplunkForAerohive/default/

Also I replaced the original app.conf in /opt/splunk/etc/apps/SplunkForAerohive/local/ with the previous app.conf

The TAR must contain only the app folder, it do not have to conaint opt/splunk/etc/app

One comment right away is that you should not ship anything at all in /local. Ship only defaults. If you want to have a reference configuration or something, put it somewhere else than in local. The reason being that when customers modify your local settings, and then they update the app to a newer version, their local settings will get clobbered.
