Deployment Architecture

Permissions for apps and .conf files




 I created an app, and now I am trying to figure out the  permissions it needs because it is getting deployed on my client server with permissions drwx------


What is the recommended settings on the directory and the .conf files being deployed?

Hi @splunktrainingu,

leave Splunk to manage operative system's permissions, don't manually modify them: you only have to think to the applicative permissions 8Splunk Users) to the objects you developed.

I did leave splunk to manage the operative side. But there was an app pushed form my server to another client that had 700. I am asking what the permissions need to be exactly.
