hi,
can you please tell me what is the right way to btool inputs.conf for a specific app context. I want to troubleshoot this error that is too much in my splunk search head messages notification : Received index from dleeted/missing/unconfigured indexes. I read previous blogs: it says your inputs.conf is sending data to an indx that doesnt exist
