Hi,

Where is the documentation for customizing modular input manager UI? I understand there are some examples but I don't understand how it really works, especially some of the XML keys and elements need explanations.

Can somebody post a more detailed explanation of the XML elements/props than in the example here?

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.1.3/AdvancedDev/ModInputsCustomizeUI

Some of my questions are:
How is fieldset used when rendering the UI?
How is the key used?

What is groupset?
Explanations of the spl-ctrl
* element.
The embedded language looks like python. Is it python? What is Form_defaults?

@kundeng you can check out Splunk Education course: https://www.splunk.com/view/SP-CAAAHUD

Also you should check out Splunk Add On Builder. You can get App and Documentation from Splunkbase: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2962/

Thanks. I did. However I needed functionality that is currently not provided by the add-on builder.

Can any splunk guru provide an example of a manager UI that dynamically shows or hides a set of fields?
