ansible-role-for-splunk third party app management


We use the ansible-role-for-splunk project found in GitHub:

Now we want to install third-party apps from Splunkbase.

The framework seem to rely on all Splunk apps being available from a git repository.

How are third-party apps such as "Splunk Add-on for Amazon Web Services (AWS)" supposed to be installed unless extracted to a custom git repository first?

Why you don't want to use your own git? I prefer to add all installed apps & TAs from splunkbase and other source to my own git to be sure that I have those also later if/when needed. It's not guaranteed that you could found those same versions from splunkbase later on if/when you are needing those again?

If you don't want to use that approach you must write own tasks to replace this

- name: "Synchronize {{ }} repo from local Ansible host to {{ splunk_home }}/{{ app_dest }}/{{ }} on remote host"

I haven't check this, but I suppose that it could be enough if you just unpack splunkbase apps to your workspace and update src to correct. But probably it's better to write own tasks for this. That way it's easiest to keep that git repo up to date when splunk make updates for it.
