Has anyone encountered this error and know the fix? I have the latest build of Splunk, added the Cisco ASA, ESA and SourceFire add on apps and the main Cisco Security Suite prompts me to go through a setup... I check these 3 packages and I get this error in a red bar:

Encountered the following error while trying to update: In handler 'localapps': Error while posting to url=/servicesNS/nobody/Splunk_CiscoSecuritySuite/css_setup/css_setup_endpoint/default

Is this a Windows install by any chance? I encountered this on two Splunk 6.2.3 windows servers. I doubt it happens on NIX.

I tried (unsuccessfully) to repro using latest (& clean) Splunk (6.2.2), ASA https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1620/, ESA https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1761/, and SourceFire https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1808.

Still, you may be able to workaroudn the issue by updating 3 files manually...

Create $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_CiscoSecuritySuite/local/app.conf

[install]
is_configured = 1

Create $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_CiscoSecuritySuite/local/css_views.conf

[default]
asa = 1
csf = 1
esa = 1

Create $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_CiscoSecuritySuite/local/data/ui/nav/default.xml

Hi, I'm also getting the error "In handler 'localapps': Error while posting to url=/servicesNS/nobody/Splunk_CiscoSecuritySuite/css_setup/css_setup_endpoint/default" (Splunk 6.2.2, CSS 3.1.1).

I only want to enable ASA and IPS so would I need a different default.xml to the one above?

If you can't live with the default navigation menu, Just remove the collections for:

  • Sourcefire IPS IDS
  • Email Security

By the way you will need the Splunk Add-on for Cisco ESA installed on your search head to get rid of an annoying message about some eventtypes not found even if you don't use ESA.

Thanks, I added the XML as is, and might change it later.

I am getting other error messages when searching;

Any idea what's going wrong here?

Hmpf try changing the css_views.conf file and set the parts you don't need to 0. Otherwise you may have to add all the add-ons 😕

I changed the css_views.conf to asa = 1, ips = 1, csf = 0, esa = 0, wsa = 0, ise = 0 but still get the errors. I added the remaining add-ons so current versions are;
Splunk_CiscoSecuritySuite 3.1.1
Splunk_TA_cisco-asa 3.2.3
Splunk_TA_cisco-esa 1.2.0
Splunk_TA_cisco-ips 2.1.4
Splunk_TA_cisco-wsa 3.2.1
Splunk_TA_sourcefire 3.3.0

If I disable Splunk_TA_cisco-asa most of the errors go away, but I guess it needs to be enabled?

I'm not able to re-produce this on my system. Can you provide the link to the SourceFire add-on you're using? There are 2 different options presently available, maybe we're using different ones.

I am using this add on app for SourceFire: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1808/, but I get this on trying to only enable the ASA or ESA add-on and this is a clean install. Odd, that I can install the apps, but the setup produces this error out of the box. Frustrating... 😞

@csimms This might be a silly question, but did you restart splunkd after installation? I installed a fresh copy this morning and although I didn't read the errors I did have the similar red bar. In my instance it is because the application requires a splunkd restart.

Yes I restarted splunk. I'll reach out to splunk support for assistance, we have a paid enterprise level, I assume they can help?

I can't find the app.conf file you mention below in that directory.
