Region Chart not in the downloaded app

Hello,

When I download the Region Chart Viz from SplunkBase ( app/4911 ) and install it on my Splunk instance, I get a pseudo-CustomViz app called "Region Chart Viz" but :
- It prompts directly because the app name is wrong
- The Region Chart is not even in the app examples

So I guess that the compilation has messed up at a point.

Am I wrong ?

OK I see what is happening here. This app is a visualization and not an "app" - so it should remain with "Visibility" = false.

Instead you first need to do a search, for example:

index=_internal | timechart span=1m count as count
| eval regions = "normal=#99D18B,5000,Warning=#FCB64E,7000,Error=#B50101"

Then click the "visualizations" tab, and select "region chart viz". Once done you can open the "formatting options" menu and if you go to the "help" tab, there will be a link to more examples.

Hope this helps and good luck 🙂

Owh OK, thanks for your answer !

Maybe you could write it down on Splunk Base or in your app UI ? Because I added your app a loooong time ago, and we are used to set visibility to false to many apps we don't use, so I thought it was that !

But thanks again 🙂

Hi @gmercier . Thanks for trying my app. Can you provide more information about the error you are seeing? Do you have a screenshot of the "prompt"? I haven't see this problem and I have installed it in a few environments. What version Splunk are you using? Many thanks , Chris.

Hello Chris,

Thanks for answering, and I hope you are doing well in those days.

I have re-installed twice the app, even re-downloaded it, and it is the same.

  • First, the app is not visible by default.
  • When I set it visible and I launch it, I reach what you see in the screenshot.

Maybe have I missed something ?
