Splunk Platform Upgrade Readiness App on OS X

Explorer

Platform: OS X 10.14
Splunk: 7.3.1

When trying to access the instance scan page from "Splunk Platform Upgrade Readiness App" on my local instance I always receive the following error.

URL: http://localhost:8000/en-US/app/upgrade_readiness_app/instance_scan

Error Received: "Error reading progress for user: admin on host: "

Details in the log file:
$ tail -f /Applications/Splunk/var/log/upgradereadinessapp/upgradereadiness.log

Thanks for the responses folks.

As it turns out my KVStore was failing due to expired server certificate. I renewed that with:

cd /Applications/Splunk/etc/auth
/Applications/Splunk/bin/splunk createssl server-cert -d . -n server

Restarted Splunk and now I no longer receive errors about KVStore, the Upgrade app functions now too.

The app may not have read access. Find the app(s) with no read permission and correct it

| rest /services/apps/local | table title eai:acl.perms.read

Thanks - this doesn't appear to fix anything. I only had one app without global read, which was monitoring app. I configured it as global read and upgrade error continues.

Hi force1024,
I simulate the issue in my local macbook running under OS Catalina, and I got the same error message. This issue is a known issue for this app
Known Issues:
-Incorrect permissions may result in error modal showing "Read" upon choosing apps to scan.
https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/4698/

I am not able to identify the root cause of this issues, per the error it seems to be some permission issues. I try to re-apply the permission to splunk folder, but I still getting the same error messages.

This is what I did to remediate the issue and get the app properly working:
- Backup the /etc folder
- Delete the Current Splunk Enterprise Installation
- Reboot the local install
- Install Splunk Enterprise Version 7.3.1.1
- Deploy the "Splunk Platform Upgrade Readiness App"
- Deploy other apps for analysis
- Run the scan against the installed apps, completed successfully

Here is the output log from upgrade_readiness.log for your reference
