How do I know which apps I can remove? Where can I get more information about all installed apps?

By default there are many apps installed. I am attempting to find out which of my apps I am able to remove from the Indexer and Search Head. For example there is "searchheads" app listed in my apps. I have no idea what this is nor where I can find more information. Some of the apps are self explanatory such as "Search & Reporting" but how do I find more information about some of these ambiguous apps?

Yeah, I started writing that app and never finished because our trial license expired. Your guess is as good as mine as to where I was going with that... just delete it.

I guess to further answer your questions, if the app does not have an splunk apps ID it is not a public app and will not have public information that people will allow people to answer questions.

Try searching the app directory for a splunk apps ID.

grep -r "apps.splunk.com/app/" $home/etc/apps/
