All Apps and Add-ons

TA-Template.zip not found

Explorer

Hello,
I need to create a technology add-on, before so, i started reading the documentation (this: article) they asking me to locate a zip folder called "TA-Template.zip" but I didn't find it. It seems that it's important to get started and i'm running out of time. I'd really appreciate if you can help me.

Thanks in advance,

You're right, the TA-Template.zip doesn't seem to be provided with the PCI app any longer.

When the doc refers to a particular configuration file, you would simply have had an empty one to start with... but those files are just text files.

If you would like a structural template to start with, pull down the Apps dropdown and click on Manage Apps.
Select "Create App"
Name the app according to the other TA's you see:
TA-myspecialdata
Visible = No
Template = barebones

You've now created a folder here: $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/TA-myspecialdata

Take a look at this article in the same documentation:

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/PCI/2.1.1/DataSource/GenericExample

This walks you through creating a TA using two existing TA's as example. That might be easier for you to get started.

With Splunk... the answer is always "YES!". It just might require more regex than you're prepared for!
