I'm wondering if it's possible to add a datamodel as a nav bar item, the same way one can with views?
I've tried adding a <datamodel name=myModel /> to ../myApp/data/ui/nav/default.xml and although it didn't throw an error while saving, it didn't do the trick either.
@thilleso Data Model and Lookups are Knowledge Objects available from Settings menu not within an app. Which means there is a difference in the hierarchy for them. Alternatively you can install Dataset Add On from Splunkbase which will create a Dataset Navigation menu in your app and allow you to access both Data Models and Lookups based on access and selections.
