How to move apps from one enviroment to another environment?

Path Finder

In the current environment, we have 3 search heads in clustering, 3 indexers in clustering. Now we are going to set up a new environment which is going to have 6 indexers and 5 search heads.

Issue: How to move apps, parser details, index apps to the new environment from the current environment.

I need to move all files with respect to that app.

Hi maniu1609,
shortly there are two methods to follow depending by the apps: standard or custom apps.

For Standard Apps, I suggest tu follow installation documents, because the best way is to perform a fresh new installation.
You could also follow the below same procedure of custom apps, but use special attention if there are scripts or particular modules (e.g.: the client to extract logs in eStreamer App)

For custom App, at first you have to be sure that all objects in your App are shared at App or Global level (not Private), then you can copy them from a Search Head to the new environment Deployer and deploy bundle.
For indexes, you can copy *.conf files (indexes.conf, props.conf and transforms.conf) from the old environment Master Node to the new one and deploy bundle.
I usually before install Indexes and then Apps.

Bye.
Giuseppe

@maniu1609, please follow the Splunk Dev site to package your app and then instead of uploading to Splunkbase, you would just deploy to your test machine to ensure packaging and dependencies works fine and then on your new splunk instance.
