I have a free edition of Splunk 6.0.3 running on a otherwise secured server. However, linking directly to a page on any app results in the initial request being redirected to the search/search.
It seems that Splunk implements the "no users" feature of the free edition by logging anyone in automatically, which is fine by me. However, it does also seem that it completely ignores the return_to parameter, which is a problem for me. Does anyone know if this is in fact broken, or is there something i am doing wrong?
Thank you very much for referring to your answer. I created my own hack by writing a tiny node server that always responds with the "no updates" response and pointed the update checker at that server. It's no less a hack, in fact it is more of a hack, but it is more update friendly, whereas changing a python file will most likely break when the server is updated.
