How to uninstall an app from a heavy forwarder?

sanjay_e

The heavy forwarder only has the option to enable or disable, and the forwarder manager doesn't list the application.
What folder are apps stored in for heavy forwarders?
Is there another way to delete apps from heavy forwarders?

If the heavy forwarder is not getting the app from a deployment server then you delete it as you would delete an app from a stand-alone Splunk instance. Delete the app's directory from $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps and restart Splunk.
