Why does REST API Modular Input app not show up on home page after installation?

After installing the app, it shows up as rest_ta under Managed Apps. Visibility for this app shows as "No" and it does not show up on the Home page. I tried installing both from the GUI and by un-tarring the file and copying to the ~/etc/apps directory. My assumption is that something should show up on the Home page. Suggestions?

Regards,

Carl

It is not an App so will not show up on the home page.
It is an Add-on (a Modular Input).

You ,must browse to "Data Inputs" and you will see a category for "Rest".

REST API Modular Input app's app.conf has is_visible value set to 0. Which is false.

[ui]
is_visible = 0
label = rest_ta

From splunk documentation

[ui]

is_visible = true | false  
* Indicates if this app should be visible/navigable as a UI app  
* Apps require at least 1 view to be available from the UI
