So I have discovered that if you build an app entirely using web framework Django binding views, Splunk won't load any of them when the user first enters the app. Instead, it will open the Alerts page below the menu bar. Also, if you have at least one XML-based view, it will be used as the default regardless of the default setting or the ordering in default.xml.
So I was wondering how to build an XML view under data/default/ui/views that would redirect the user to /dj/redirector/some_django_page/.
Has anyone ever managed to do that and care to share?
