Installation of Splunk Dashboards App (Beta) from "Browse more apps" interface in Splunk doesn't work.

Looks like you've included multiple apps in the package - this error appears when installing:

Invalid app contents: archive contains more than one immediate subdirectory: and splunk-dashboard-app

Good news! With the release of version 0.3.0, you'll be able to install the app the same way you install any of the others. Thanks for your patience!

Gaurav, the app requires installation via CLI. See docs here: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/DashApp/latest/DashApp/IntroApp

I guess it was a glitch from the Splunk, i experienced the same issue yesterday, but today it's working fine.

You can retry the download with restart or download directly from https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1603/ and paste at $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/

Hi @atammana_splunk ,

Opps, I mistaken the Dashboard beta with Dashboard Example app.

The app available with .spl extension. The app file can be easily extracted using 7zip application on Windows or by using "tar" command on windows/linux systems. "tar" is zip/unzip command, not any installation command.
tar -xvf<path_to_file>/<app_file>.spl -C <destination>/<folder>/

Once application file is extracted, it will create two folders.
Now copy/paste these 2 folders inside $SPLUNK_HOME$/etc/apps/

Now, restart your Splunk to load the application or you can load it without restart by going to URL,
https://:8000/en-US/debug/refresh --> click refresh.

Once page loading is complete, refresh your Splunk Home page, and dashboard app will be available in the application list.

Accept & up-vote the answer if it helps.
