When I choose the "Splunk Add-on for MySQL" in my list of apps, it always brings me to the Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux: Setup screen. We don't even have that app.
DB Connect App has been set up and works. I have also enabled the MySQL inputs. Additionally I have also re-installed the MySQL App. The logs, even in debug mode show the app start and immediately stop, but with no reason.
looks like the "Splunk Add-on for MySQL" app is not supposed to have an UI, and has no navigation bar.
So when you make it visible, it does not know which nav bar to use, and pick the one from another app that happens to be be global (unix app).
workaround : create a navigation menu in the app
- on disk go to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/MY_SUPER_APP/local/data/ui/nav, and create a default.xml from another app template
- or on the UI go to the app manager > user interface > navigation bar > new and copy paste default.xml from another app
-restart splunk and test
- then start to tweak the nav bar to your needs.
