Problem with sideview and splunk app for puppet?

Hi Simony,
I've installed the app, and when I go to the overview, I get this popup error: "Splunk encountered the following unknown module: "Tabs" . The view may not load properly"
I also get a banner saying "Misconfigured view 'P-PUPPET-0m-DashboardReports-NONE' - Unknown parameter 'staticOptions' is defined for module Pulldown. Make sure the parameter is specified in Pulldown.conf."

I have sideview utils 1.3.4 installed, on splunk 5.0.3.

regards,
Stéphane

Hi Stéphane

You need the sideview utils with the version 2.2.2. Sorry for the bad documentation I will note this still.

Simony - this is a problem. If you're developing an app and distributing it to third parties, then you are in violation of the Sideview Free Internal License Agreement. Sideview Utils 2.X is free for internal use, but basically for companies who are using it as a dependency of commercial apps, they need a Sideview OEM license. I know of several spps in the ecosystem built on Sideview Utils 2.X, but they all have Sideview OEM licenses. I'm afraid I was not aware until now that Splunk for Puppet required SVU 2.X. email me at nick [at] sideviewapps.com

It sounds to me as if you need a new version of sideview utils installed. I can't for the life of me track down a changelog with features added but it looks like tabs were added between 2011 and now... 🙂 Especially since pulldown is a sideview module but it appears it has had a new param added, this suggests you just need to update.

To be sure, have a look at HTTP://SPLUNKSERVER:8000/modules and do a search for Tabs, if its not on there then you need a newer version of sideview utils. If it is on there then you need;

<module name="SideviewUtils" layoutPanel="appHeader"/>

In the header of the dashboard XML, although I assume that its already there as this is from an app

yep, that was it, missing "tabs" module (available in version 2.x of sideview utils)
