Hi Duraij,

I had the same problem today with this App. Here is the steps I did to resolve it.

We are running 6.4.2, btw.

I made sure to install the Timeline App with the version 1.0.1. To do so, in the drop down next to the release notes box, make sure to select 1.0.1 and click the download button.

Next, install the app on your Splunk Search head, and restart your Splunk

Clear your browser cache

Try accessing your Timeline App, you should see a visualization demo. If it's still not working, try to access your Search Head with an In-Private Browser session

Hope it helps



Yes, it appears that Splunk 6.4.x is only compatible with the 1.0.1 version of the Timeline visualization, 1.1.0 requires Splunk 6.5.x
