determine if an app suffered local changes on Splunk Cloud


We need to determine if an app suffered local changes.

Is there a way to leverage the | rest command to do it since we have Splunk Cloud and we can't actually look into the etc/apps directory?

Consider this scenario:
1. We have app version 1.0.0 installed on the splunk cloud search head
2. We discover a bug and we fix it on our own by editing the dashboard, fieldextractions, etc
3. Developer releases 1.0.1 and also fixes the issue but offers more features
4. When we update the app the local directory will persist and thus we won't have the fixes from the developer since local has precedence over the default directory
