[devtutorial] - Cannot setup sample data bundle?

New Member


I am trying to use Splunk for the first time and I am not able to complete the devtutorial.

I successfully created an app called "Dev Tutorial" (instructions). 

Then I followed these instructions and setup an index called "devtutorial" (which I enabled), installed the "Eventgen" app (which appears in my app directory as "SA-Eventgen"), navigated to "Settings >> Data Inputs >> Eventgen" and enabled the "modinput_eventgen" source type, downloaded sample_bundle and changed the index to "devtutorial", I refeshed Splunk by using this link: http://localhost:8000/debug/refresh.

But, when I go to my "Dev Tutorial" app and search for "index="devtutorial" ", no events show up. Also when I go to the "SA-Eventgen" app itself, I get no data:
