How can I create a setup page for a custom app?

Working by examples of Windows and Unix apps I'm trying to build a setup page for my app. It has a scripted input for which I would like to configure some parameters using the setup screen like in the aforementioned apps.

I figured that setup.xml file that defines contents of the setup screen would require an EAI endpoint. So I tried to create one inside my app. For this I've put this stanza in restmap.conf:

handleractions=list, edit

and also created inside bin directory:

import splunk.admin as admin

class MyAppConfig(admin.MConfigHandler):
    def setup(self):
        if self.requestedAction == admin.ACTION_EDIT:
            for arg in ['enabled', 'pollInterval']:

    def handleList(self, confInfo):
        confInfo['1'].append('asd', 'zxc')
        confInfo['1'].append('bbb', 'aaa')
        confInfo['2'].append('asd', 'zxc')
        confInfo['2'].append('bbb', 'aaa')

    def handleEdit(self, confInfo):
        name =
        args = self.callerArgs
        # to be completed

# initialize the handler, and add the actions it supports.    
admin.init(MyAppConfig, admin.CONTEXT_NONE)

But going to https://localhost:8089/services/admin/myappconf returned me 404..

Are the EAI endpoints restricted from being defined inside custom apps? If so, is it still possible to create a setup page somehow?

that config is valid - are you sure your app is enabled?

Yes, the app was disabled. I changed in app.conf: state = enabled and now I can access my endpoint. Also one needs to make sure splunk is restarted after config changes are made.
