Invalid key in default stanza for DB Connect app doc_title

Path Finder

I am running Splunk 6.5 and DB Connect 3.1.0. I know there is a 3.1.1, but it does not list this as a fixed issue in the changelog. Other than deleting/commenting out these bad lines, how would I fix this key? This is happening in the default configs, so I'm not sure if I somehow corrupted the install, or if something migrated from my old v2 DB Connect that shouldn't have.
in $SPLUNKHOME/etc/apps/splunkappdbconnect/default/checklist.conf:

Hi,

So I have seen this issue before and actually ran into it again on the current customer site I am working upon.

It appears when running Splunk Enterprise 6.5.x and any of the DBX 3.x versions so it isn't you and even the latest package (3.1.1) doesn't have a checklist.conf.spec file. The only one that comes with the system that I can see is within the "splunkmonitoringconsole" app, but even coping this over to the DBX's README folder it still throws up the errors.

I presume it is a limitation within Splunk 6.5.x and the best course would be to locally edit the "default" checklist.conf files to comment out these lines until you upgrade past Enterprise 6.5.x as with Enterprise 6.6.x and 7.0.x this doesn't seem to be an issue at all.

some thoughts:

is this a shc? if it is, then keep in mind that the deployer will merge default/local appropriately and push the "winning" changes into default on the members. So if this is a member in a shc, being in default doesn't necessarily mean it is in default in the app. If that is the case, check to see if there is a local version of checklist.conf on your deployer

if you download 3.1.0 and just look at the files (w/o installing), does that key exist in the default checklist.conf? that might help you verify whether it was something from your migration. If it is, is it also defined appropriately in the checklist.conf spec file in the README folder.

And then if needed, do the same check for 3.1.1 (if it was maybe caught and addressed)
