All Apps and Add-ons missing from both 3.x versions of splunk db connect


Trying to stand up a new heavy forwarder to remove splunk db connect from our primary search head and when I grabbed the most recent versions of the application, it does not seem to have in the tarball at all. It does not appear to have been deprecated because the SQL explorer still relies on it. Please let me know what I need to do to get this back. It's core to our environment.
