An app is a set of configuration files in this case.

On my deployment server, I created ${SPLUNK_HOME}/etc/deployment-apps/01_ISU_A_Indexers (I use numbers for ASCII ordering of apps, ISU for locally created apps, and I have two sets of indexers, so two apps, one for each set).

In ${SPLUNK_HOME}/etc/deployment-apps/01_ISU_A_Indexers/local I put outputs.conf. A reload of deployment sever is probably necessary, so "splunk reload deploy-server". Then the app is available to be pushed out via server classes.

*outputs.conf * is an interesting artifact as it's normally being shared by many apps.

yannK has an interesting idea at -

Changing UF outputs.conf using deployment server

• create an app in the deployment server in .../etc//deployment-apps//default/outputs.conf

• define a serverclass.conf on the deployment server (to match clients to apps)

• configure the forwarders to point to the deployment-server in deploymentclient.conf

Meaning, the idea of creating a global *outputs.conf *.

You would create (recommended) separate app for outputs.conf and will distribute in the same way you distribute any other app. Do remember to set restartSplunkd=true for the serverclass containing this app.
