It's interesting - on the single server installation I do see the Install app from file option...
@ddrillic, do you have
Admin rights on your Splunk Instance where
Install App from file option is not showing up?
I do have admin rights and it's a SH cluster where I don't see the option, whereas on the on single server installation, I see it...
For a search head cluster, you should actually only deploy apps from the deployer. The appropriate Splunk documentation is below:
This also involves manually extracting and placing the app itself on the deployer and running the appropriate CLI commands to deploy.
Absolutely !!! that's what I ended up doing. But it seems to me that the splunkbase message I posted above about Install app from file is misleading.
