Master License Server and how to control Slaves?

Super Champion

We have got a main "Splunk License Server " with few slaves connecting to it.
As part of automation, whenever slaves are installed a new entry will be added to point to the license server.

./splunk edit licenser-localslave -master_uri 'https://master:port'

This was the case until I changed the logic to make the license handling as part of app. But unfortunately, I can see multiple entries in the Splunk Master, showing reoccurence of the slaves!! i.e. same slaves appearing multiple times.
Is there a way to configure them in a config file from the Master? (or has to be deleted?)

Found the problem.
Whenever the command to add slave is run, it inserts into $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/local/ and other places as well.

The solution is to ensure SPlunk Licenses are part of a single App and configure as
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/mySplunkLicenseApp/local/server.conf

[license]
master_uri = https://masterLicenseServer:ManagementPort
