Setting phoneHomeIntervalInSecs for deploymentclient.conf

I am having trouble getting the deploymentclient.conf setting phoneHomeIntervalInSecs to be followed.

Using a universal forwarder on windows the default checkin seems to be 60 seconds. I tried to specify 5 minutes in /apps/foo/local/deploymentclient.conf , but it still checks in every 60 seconds.

Does anyone know if this must be set in system/local/deploymentclient.conf or if it expected to work if specified in any /etc/app/foo/local/deploymentclient.conf ?

There is a known issue (SPL-41174) regarding phonehome messages incorrectly displaying at the default of every 60 seconds despite resetting phoneHomeIntervalInSecs.

See this for more details.

It has always worked for me in an app folder.

How did you verify the checkin interval?

This could be caused by a permissions issue in your apps/foo/metadata/default.meta. Try adding:

## default.meta
[deploymentclient]
export = system

I've seen other similar issues fixed by using this setting.

I can use the same syntax to override the setting in system/local/deploymentclient.conf and it works as expected.

but in apps/foo/local/deploymentclient.conf , it still shows up as desired when i type "splunk show config -name deploymentclient", but the checkins continue at 60 second intervals.
