Hi @SamHTexas,

as you can see at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.1.2/Knowledge/ConfigureKVstorelookups you configure your kv-store in collections.conf and transforms.conf, then you can find them in Lookup Definitions.

Ciao.

Thank u as always. Just a crazy question please? What is your method of editing / viewing the .cong files. Are they only viewed & edited via CLI 100% of the time? Is any editing or viewing of the .conf files done via GUI ?

Hi @SamHTexas,

I'm not so sure but I think that I edit conf files maily via CLI, maybe not 100% but a near number!

I use GUI sometimes mainly in test on my PC, but at this moment I don't remember something that i do via GUI, especially on production systems, also why clusters (SHs and INDs), deployment servers, props.conf and transforms.con are difficoult to modify via GUI, maybe something on props, but I don't remember and this means that it's very rare.

Ciao and happy splunking.

Hi @SamHTexas,

as all the App's configuration files, they are in the local folder of your App.

Ciao.
