sourcetypes not working in Okta app

New Member

I just installed the new Splunk app for Okta. Everything seems to be working fine, except that I cannot query anything based on sourcetype alone. For example: a query for "sourcetype=okta:sso" does not return any results, but a query for "index=okta sourcetype=okta:sso" does work. This is a problem because the included eventtypes and the dashboards do not search with index=okta in the query, thus all the dashboards are empty.

Any ideas?

We released a new version of the Okta app yesterday that addressed this issue (among others) -- hopefully this helps!

I ran into the same thing. I probably should not have but I added "index=okta" to the searches to correct it for my instance. Probably a permission issue but I wanted to get the app up and running quickly. I'd like to hear how others may have corrected this appropriately rather than the bandaid approach that I did. Another issue I ran into, intermittently, is in regards to the maps. I get "Error in 'script': Getinfo probe failed for external search command 'geoip'" eventually works on second or third refresh.
