I've been playing around with telemetry.conf to disable the modal which is shown to our end-users.
I've put settings
#$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_instrumentation/local/telementry.conf [general] sendAnonymizedUsage = false sendLicenseUsage = false precheckSendAnonymizedUsage = false precheckSendLicenseUsage = false showOptInModal = false deprecatedConfig = false
Checked btool and all are false
But still the modal/pop-up is shown. Anywhere else I need to change?
Found it !!
Created a new app MYusersettings and put entries in
# $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/MY_user_settings/local/user-prefs.conf [general] render_version_messages = 0 hideInstrumentationOptInModal = 1 dismissedInstrumentationOptInVersion = 2 [general_default] hideInstrumentationOptInModal = 1 showWhatsNew = 0
ran btool and looks good.
Make sure to run "./splunk tool --debug user-prefs list" to ensure it is taking effect. You can also consider to use system/local/user-prefs.conf.
I know this is an old thread but I've been trying to figure this out as well on Splunk Enterprise 7. These settings do not seem to work. I even tried the custom folder MYusersettings.
The btool output shows the settings are configured. Seems like Splunk would have a simple setting like the 'userTour' option to not show the help improve modal.
