So.. With a lot of reports that are dependent on lookup tables.. Dashboards dependent on saved reports, and so on, it's easy to break dependencies of you are not careful.
Short of manual regression testing every report, dashboard, etc, does anyone have any efficient techniques for verifying accessibility dependent lookup tables, macros, etc for reports. Or saved searches for dashboards?
I've been noticing a bunch of missing dependencies among reports I haven't visited in a while.. Was thinking we need an efficient way to see how broad such problems are.
Was also thinking if would be useful if the knowledge object management interface in splunk web provided some sort of dependency enumeration (and perhaps search and replace) upon request for delete or clone or rename, etc. Just thinking out loud.
Anyone run into problems like this? Have a good way to mananage such change?
