It seems I can't edit dashboard and form XML's using my own editor. Upon saving, Splunk does not refresh (probably because it reads from DB cache instead of file?), how can I force it to read the file every time it changes because I'd like to use my own IDE instead of the splunk xml editor.
worked when editing files outside of Splunk Enterprise 8.0.6.
If I edit the file directly in (\default\data\ui\views\) and then click on the App in the upper left corner of the screen under 'Apps', the display content for the modified file is not updated.
Confirming what @DanMurad posted.
I'm having this exact same problem with Version 6.1.1 ... Any other ideas here, I've tried everything listed but it will not refresh custom dashboards. Doing a ?showsource=1 shows the out of date code.
You can reload these from disk using the following endpoint(s).
To reload all objects:
To reload views only:
All views in the app are refreshed when you access the app's start URL ( .../apps/yourapp ). You can just click the app logo at the top left corner in your app in splunkweb to achieve the same thing.
