Dashboards & Visualizations

Why did my dashboards disappear after upgrading to Search Head Clustering?

Motivator

After I moved all my apps to my new Search Head Cluster per the documents, I am getting the following when going to my app:

"Splunk cannot find the view 'homepage' "

However, the app was copied directly from a working search head, the XML is there, the permissions are correct. None of the views can be seen in either the web UI or via the manager. What is going wrong?

Ensure that your app folder names do not contain any special characters - including periods. Letters, numbers, and underscore have been tested to work.

Thanks for this solution. I spent a lot of time wondering what went wrong.
Any ideas if this will be fixed in near future?

I've opened a JIRA to cover this issue: SPL-92694. Looks like a regression in Dash, unrelated to search head clustering.

No, pre-6.2/SHC the app was working fine with a period (.) in its foldername. We had to change the period to underscore to get SHC to accept it. (It wasn't tested on 6.2 non-SHC.)

Did your app folder name contain any special characters before the move or you added the special character as part of the move?
