Developing for Splunk Enterprise

I don't have permission to open folder of app created in splunk web on Mac

After creating a starter app on Splunk web I am unable to open the folder so I can user VS code to edit the app. Am I missing something?

Did you install Splunk with the dmg or tgz file?

If you used the installer (dmg) permissions for the application will be managed for you and apps you create through splunk web will be permissioned appropriately for the user who started splunk (just tested on 8.0.1) and will ensure splunk starts as the correct user (yourself)

If you installed Splunk with the tgz file, you will need to manage your permissions manually, and may need to take additional steps to ensure the permissions on your installation are corerect.

If you configured Splunk to start as another user (splunk perhaps), applications you add with splunkweb will be owned by that user. You will need appropriate rights (or sudo) to access files/folders you do not own.

If this is a dev/test instance - the dmg installer is far simpler (IMO) and splunk will run as you
