Deployer overwritting app configuration

Path Finder

I created a barebones app on the deployer, copied it to shcluster/apps directory and pushed it to the 6 nodes of our SHC. Then, I configured the app from within the SHC with saved searches, dashboards, setup the NAV bar the way I wanted, etc. Same thing I have done many many times. A second push from the deployer seems to reset this app back to barbones. All the previous configuration is gone. This happened twice. Configured the app and it gets reset back to barebones after another push from the deployer.

splunk enterprise version 7.0.2

How are you configuring those searches/navigations, updates from Splunk Web UI or directly on filesystem of the SHC members? If directly on file system, which app sub directories (default or local) you're creating those objects?

Splunk Web. I can confirm that the changes where replicated to all members before being wiped by the deployer.

Whats the app.conf value you're using on SHC Deployer (with your barebones app directory)? I use something like this and it works fine.

[install]
state = enabled

[ui]
is_visible = 1
label = App Title

[launcher]
author = AuthorName
description = App Description
version = 1.0

[install]
is_configured = 0

[ui]
is_visible = 1
label = App Title

[launcher]
author = AuthorName
description = App Description
version = 1.0

This is how the app.conf was configured when I created the barebones app in the deployers splunk web. Its the same as many many other apps we have created in the same fashion and pushed out. Once the barebones app is pushed to the cluster, we do the configuration with the SHC. None of these other apps have the same issue.

turns out an old, thought to be decomm'd server that WAS our old deployer was turned on again and pushing bundles to the SHC via a script we have running. DOH
