I am using C# SDK 2.0 and Visual Studio 2013 Extension for creating Modular Inputs. I am trying to understand the best way to specify default values for parameters, if it is even possible.
There are 2 ways that come to mind :
1) hard code some defaults in your C# code. But then they are fixed as they are in compiled code.
2) So perhaps better , ship your modular input with a default/inputs.conf file that defines a parent stanza with defaults.
So , your default/inputs.conf might look like :
some_default_param = 123
And then when users setup stanzas they can inherit the default parameters or override them
some_default_param = 678

That is the perfect answer I was looking for.
I changed my input.conf file but not able to see my default value on splunk setting=>data=>input=>app=>new page
