Deployment Architecture

search head cluster apps

Builder

Hi,

We use the deployer to distribute configs to the search head cluster. I want to add configs to the search heads which are independent to each other.

Can I place an app in the /etc/apps directory of each search head where as not causing any syncing issues with the deployer ?

Thanks

Given your response to my first answer, that certainly as a good reason to do such a thing. The answer is yes. If you put these differing configurations in the same app and that app is/was NOT deployed from the deployer, then it should be fine.

If that is your plan, DO NOT use a Search Head Cluster. It is like saying, I'd like to drive my airplane on the lake. You are defeating the entire purpose of a Search Head Cluster.

hmm, the thing is I want to implement SAML on the search head cluster. I am unable to create the same entityId for all the search heads in our IDP, so each entityId has to be different so the configs would be different for all the search heads. I was thinking to put the related in an app and deploy individually on the search heads, version 6.5,3
