Avoid installing demo data ?

New Member

Hi contributors, many thanks for that interesting app. Is it possible to install it without demo data ?

If you would like to, you can decompress the download and delete the demo data lookups.

The csvs that are required for app functionality are documented here: (note that this includes CSV-based lookups, which is what we're concerned about here, along with kvstore collections that you don't need to worry about.

That said, remember that the demo data is just a series of CSV files that never get indexed, so they don't clog up your indexes or use any license, and by default this data isn't replicated to the indexers so it won't increase bundle sizes. There is no technical problem associated with installing this app (including the demo data) on a production system. This is the same for most of the essentials apps, notably excluding Splunk Security Essentials for Fraud which ships with many GB of demo data.
