Hello Andrew @landen99

First of all a big thanks for coming up with this great app concept. I would love to leverage it to do some splunk internal configuration monitoring and management.

I have got started with the app and gone thought the readme file. Once I downloaded the main app I found it has multiple sub directories. I have understood their functions but unable to kick start them to do their job.

ca_idx --> has been copied to indexer which created the required indexes --> working fine
ca_win/default --> has been configured to onboard logs windows/linux --> works fine

But ca_sh,ca_btool,ca_tool is where I am stuck. Are they supposed to reside within the parent app config_analytics in the search head or should i put them independently under etc/apps folder in the search head ? Even though the data is correctly coming in , I am unable to leverage any of the dashboard functionality since these 3 sub apps seems to be broken. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Finally thank you Gregg @woodcock for highlighting this app in .conf18.

We got most of them working by placing each folder under /etc/apps.

ca_sh, ca_btool, ca_tool are all separate apps for the search head.

ca_sh has the dashboards and searches
ca_tools has extra admin related tools
ca_btool has btool related tools

I haven't had much time yet to work on the app to develop means for connecting and tracking knowledge object dependency changes, but that is a goal. I have been working on my udemy courses: 1) regex in Splunk and 2) fast Splunk searches.

The ca_btool goes on every node and ca_sh goes on the Search Heads. I have never had occasion to poke into the ca_tool app so I don't know.

Gregg, You are going to love my next app and talk at .conf19! Improving searches to run 500k times faster against raw data and correlated searches (multiple data sources).
