Hi,

I have deployed a new app on my production environment and I am using it.

Now in development environment, I have changed some dashboards and I have to deployed it to the production environment.

I have executed the following steps:

  • Generate .spl file in development environment in the following way ./splunk.exe package app <app_name>
  • Run the command below to update app in production environment ./splunk install app <spl file produced in the step previous> -update 1 -auth admin:password

The new dashboards are added but the dashboards present in the app are not updated.

Please let me know the best way to do this.

Thanks,
Aniello

When you use the package command, Splunk automatically moves anything in local into default. When you install that package onto a different environment, and don't take steps to clean the local folder in production, then any dashboards present in local in production will not change, as they take precedence over the files in default.

Check your local folder in production, and backup and remove any dashboards you find in that app.

I add that all dashboards are updated, there is only one dashboard that has been updated only in default folder and not in local.

But the problem is that only this dashboard in Prod env is present in this folder (local), the other are present in default folder. Why?
