If I package an app to transfer to another server, do I have to upload it to Splunkbase?

Communicator

Hello,

I'm packaging an app for install on another server. I've got it tarred and zipped. The final step on the Windows packaging instructions says it's now ready for upload to Splunkbase. I don't want to upload it to Splunkbase, I want to keep some privacy and transfer it via my intranet. Will it still install properly if I do this? Does it need Splunkbase to install properly?

Thanks for your help.

You can install it without using Splunkbase, no problem. After you have zip'd the file, you can rename it as .spl and then distribute with your favorite scripting or packaging app depending on how you plan to install it into Splunk.

As a .spl, you can run the CLI installation steps, or install via GUI.

As a .zip, you can script a installation on your hosts and restart..
