How to create an offline repository of Splunk Documentation?

Hi,

We are using Splunk on a network that is not connected to the internet. Each time we need some docs, we open a separate computer to find solutions in Splunk official docs.

In the Splunk Enterprise home page, there is shortcut to the online docs.

I want to implement an offline repository of these docs - to be able to download all the docs, copy this to the non-connected network, and change the link within Splunk to the new place offline.

Someone know if we can implement it?

Thanks,

Omer.

The Splunk documentation system does not currently provide the features you describe. We have gathered requirements for offline delivery and plan to have our web development team work on that project in the future.

Downloading PDFs of the manuals you need is the best we can offer today. I recognize that it is not what you requested. We will work to make the offline experience better!

Hi! I'm really looking forward to this feature, and i'm very excited to hear that you folks at Splunk are working on it.

It really shows poor support when you cant download full pdf's, I get the documentation isn't that great in the first place, but downloading a few pages at a time is not acceptable. I know splunk loves to push pro-services but providing minimal and often missing or incorrect manuals is not the way to go.

You can download a PDF of either the topic you're looking at or the entire manual. Perhaps you have only noticed the topic-level button. I can't post a screen shot in this comment, but look higher up on the page, underneath the title of the manual. There is a Download manual as PDF button there.

If you have specific comments about the documentation, please use the feedback form at the bottom of any page to tell us what isn't working for you. If you include your contact information, we will follow up with you directly. The Splunk doc team is always hard at work to incorporate customer feedback and improve our content.

Hi! Is there any options for offline documentation available yet, or if not, is there any estimated release date for this functionality? Thanks!
