Path Finder

Hi,

I am not able to install the Splunk App for Excel Export. Could any one provide the steps for installing?

Thanks.

Assuming you have downloaded the app's .tgz file from splunkbase, there are a couple of ways to install any Splunk app:

*From the UI*

From your Splunk home page, click on the gear icon next to "Apps" in the upper lefthand corner of the page. Click "Install app from file" and follow the prompts (click restart Splunk when prompted.)

Using Splunk CLI Command
From a DOS prompt, navigate to the directory containing the .tgz file and run the following commands:

  • splunk install app name of the tgz file
  • splunk restart

Technically, there is a third way by unpacking the .tgz file, but it is a little more involved. The above steps are the easiest. Please inform if you run into any issues.

Thanks for response and it worked fine.
Also after installing, Splunk for Excel Export was by default set as Invisible
which i updated using Manage Apps-> Visible and i was able to work on the app.
