How do I install the Splunk Security Essentials app?

New Member

Hello. Is there any documentation on how to properly install and configure the Security Essentials app? My setup is on CentOS and consists of a HF, IDX, SH, DS, and some universal forwarders. No clustering or load balancing.

The app entry on Splunkbase includes installation guidance. It's safe to install on a distributed environment, and yours sounds fairly simple. See https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3435/#/details

Thanks for the link I am reading over it now. To be clear, I log into my Search Head and untar the file into $SPLUNK_HOME$/etc/apps then restart the splunk service on my SH to make the application available correct?

Also, how do I make sure that the demo data does not replicate to my indexer?

It's set to not replicate by default, so nothing! Correct to all of the above.
