How to stop "First time on this page" prompt

New Member

Every time I log into Splunk, I'm met with the following question: "It looks like this is your first time on this page. Would you like to take a quick tour?"

It is not my first time on the page - the page is bookmarked because I'm there every day. How do I get Splunk to stop asking this question? I tried completing the tour to see if that would 'trick' it into stopping, but no luck.

Did you by chance initially start Splunk as root, and then switch to another user to run the process (like splunk)

It may be that the user splunk is currently running as can not modify some .conf files, so it can not record that the tour has been completed.

Check the permissions of this file $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/users/admin/search/local/ui-tour.conf
(assuming you are admin - otherwise substitute for your name!)

That path/file does not exist on my system. Splunk is not installed on my computer. I am accessing our corporate instance via a web browser on Windows 10. I am not a Splunk admin.

Welcome to Splunk answers

In ancy case, its nothing you (as an end user) are doing wrong, so I would raise this with your in-house admin team, and ask them to look into it.
