All Apps and Add-ons

App setup.xml - 404 page not found


I'm facing issue with setup page on Splunk app to get user input. When I tried to access the app Set Up page from Manage Apps, I get '404 Page not found error' (web_service.log). Even splunk logs is not giving any details regarding the error. I have followed the guide on the website and some application available on Splunk base. I am not able to find out what I'm doing wrong.

Following are my conf files. All files are in 'default' folder.

Any help will be appreciated.

I assume you have followed through .
did you try "match=/" instead of "match=/userinput"

Alternatively, you can use an add-on builder to create a custom app/add-on along with a setup page. (creates html file) . Have you looked at this?
