How to use have setup.xml forward users to a SimpleXML view for the setup experience

Champion

I know Splunk supports using a normal SimpleXML/Javascript view to be used in lieu of the normal manager XML that setup.xml uses. However, I cannot find the information on how to use this and it isn't documented in the most current setup.xml.spec.

Does anyone recall how to have setup.xml use a SimpleXML view for setup?

This can be done by including the "redirect" attribute in setup.xml. Below is an example:

<setup>
  <block task="setup" type="redirect" />
</setup>

This won't work unless you have also created a SimpleXML view with the name "setup". Thus, you will also need a view named "setup.xml" under "default/data/ui/views". That is, "default/data/ui/views/setup.xml".

This simpleXML override has been available since Splunk 6.2.
