How to resolve this error: The "id" field found in app.conf does not match the root folder of the application?


While adding the Splunk App to Splunk Base I am getting Error : 


The "id" field found in app.conf does not match the root folder of the application


My config:

The "id" attribute in the [package] stanza must be the app's directory name, in this case the app would be stored in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/SplunkforAccuKnox.  If the directory name in the tarball doesn't match the "id" attribute then the app will not be installed.

Also, the install_source_checksum setting must be removed before installation.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
