I installed fire brigade 2 and the ta on a search-head, running Splunk 6. Very little data is appearing - the host drop-down is always empty, and the index drop-down has a message under it that says "Could not create search". Is there something else that needs to be done?
FYI, Fire Brigade version 2 will no longer be updated (latest version is 2.0.3). The newer versions 2.0.4 and higher will now be available with the original “Fire Brigade” app on Splunkbase which was just updated to support Splunk 6.3. This is noted on the page for Fire Brigade on Splunkbase: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1581/
If you have any questions, ping the developer of the app @sowings
The TA will have 2 saved searches, you can use the S&R manager to make sure these are firing, and run them manually to test. In fact, you might want to lift them from the saved search and run them manually on the searchbar just to make sure they are producing the expected output.
Regarding the host menu and index dropdown, those are tied to a separate saved search in the main Fire Brigade App...you can also test/manually run this search to populate that dropdown.
