Users are constantly being prompted to "take the tour" when logging into Splunk 6.4.1

Motivator

After I upgraded my Splunk environment to 6.4.1, my users are reporting that they are repeatedly prompted as a new user would to take the tour for the app. I notice for users that are not getting it, under etc/users/username/app/local/ui-tour.conf will have a viewed = 1, while other users do not.

Any idea why this is occurring?

Sounds like a permissions issue on the filesystem. Check that the owner of the Splunk process has write permission on that users folder.

We noticed when there is an new app with tour (ITSI), it wil allways pop-up the tour as long there is nothing configured in the new app.

So are the users "working" with app or just open it?

The is also a global setting to Ignore the tours.
Place ui-tour.conf in etc/system/local with

[default]
useTour = false
