Status indicator icon does not appear

New Member

I'm using Splunk 7.2.6 and I've installed the Status Indicator app. The problem is I cannot get any icons to how up. The value appears just fine, but no icons?

TIA

The documentation for this app is absolutely awful. This is the only helpful thing I've found: format and Simple XML reference. Try renaming the field with your number to count and returning no other fields. If you have any more questions, feel free to reach out. We use this app religiously and I've found no way around this hard to find requirement.

Here's a snippet from one of my dashboards that works:

    <panel>
      <title>$tok01$</title>
      <viz id="vizTok01HealthScore" type="status_indicator_app.status_indicator">
        <search base="[base search]">
          <query>
search abc="$Tok01$"
| fields - abc
| fieldformat count=round(count) . "%"</query>
        </search>
        <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.colorBy">field_value</option>
        <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.fillTarget">background</option>
        <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.fixIcon">check</option>
        <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.icon">field_value</option>
        <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.precision">0</option>
        <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.showOption">1</option>
        <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.staticColor">#65a637</option>
        <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.useColors">true</option>
        <drilldown>
          <set token="abc">$tok01$</set>
        </drilldown>
      </viz>
    </panel>

Edit: Also, when we first installed the app, they only worked on certain computers. I apologize that I can't exactly remember the solution, but there may be an issue with the installation itself. Be sure to at least try bouncing the Splunk instance with the app before continuing.

Sorry I couldn't help. I do remember this app being a pain to get working, but I can't remember what all we had to do to get it working. The good news is that once it's set up properly, it is reliable.

Cheers,

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the location of the font-awesome stuff.

I deployed the app in my stand alone instance and I used this simple dashboard code below. I also change the app permission to be visible globally, so you can use it from any other app you need to. The tricky part is you have to change the graph visualisation in order to get the icon work properly. Please see below the steps I took to get this worked.

Dashboard sample:

Status indicator Example

<panel>
  <title>Status indicator example dashboard</title>
  <viz type="status_indicator_app.status_indicator">
    <search>
      <query>index=_internal | stats count | table count icon color</query>
      <earliest>@w0</earliest>
      <latest>now</latest>
    </search>
    <option name="drilldown">all</option>
    <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.colorBy">static_color</option>
    <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.fillTarget">text</option>
    <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.fixIcon">check</option>
    <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.icon">fix_icon</option>
    <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.precision">0</option>
    <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.showOption">1</option>
    <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.staticColor">#006d9c</option>
    <option name="status_indicator_app.status_indicator.useColors">true</option>
  </viz>
</panel>


<panel>
  <title>Dashboard Test Status Indicator</title>
  <viz type="status_indicator_app.status_indicator">
    <search>
      <query>index=_internal

| eval icon="exclamation-circle"
