Global | Permissions Enabled | Disable Launch app | Edit properties | View objects | View details on Splunkbase

and also in the "Home Page"

but I can't to config it .

also when I press the "MYSQL" in the home page I get error

I have try to reboot the server - didn't help.

Do you have DBConnect installed?

You need it to ingest data from databases. For MySQL you have to download the connector - as described in the docs - and put it into DBConnect's directory.
