I am new to using the deployment server functionality within Splunk. Every time I try to add an app to a server class depending on the app I get the following error. This is a Linux system.
In handler 'applications': Failed to create dir=/opt/splunk/etc/deployment-apps/SplunkTAnix/local, needed for application=SplunkTAnix: Permission denied
Can you confirm you have admin user rights in the Splunk UI. Additionally, at the OS level, check you check the $splunk_home/etc/deployment-apps/ folder and check the permissions at the OS level.
I am logged in to Splunk using the admin account.
root@server [/opt/splunk/etc]# ls -l deployment-apps/ total 28 drwxr-xr-x 6 splunk splunk 4096 Mar 21 10:25 ./ drwxr-xr-x 16 splunk splunk 4096 Mar 14 16:29 ../ -r--r--r-- 1 splunk splunk 307 Feb 18 23:01 README drwx--x--x 6 root root 4096 Mar 20 23:22 sendtoindexer/ drwx------ 11 root root 4096 Mar 20 23:39 Splunk_TA_nix/ drwx------ 14 root root 4096 Mar 21 10:25 Splunk_TA_windows/ drwx------ 2 splunk splunk 4096 Mar 2 09:04 users/
using chown -R splunk folder/ I have fixed the permissions and it is working now
Becareful when creating the apps, make sure permissions are always set to the same as the user running splunk! Good catch.
Thanks. I ran into this when manually adding an app at the command line as well.
I had to chown -R splunk:splunk on the new app
