How can I remove the "First time logging in?" hint in the login form?

Contributor

Hi all,

I have a fresh Splunk 4.1.4 installation and installed an enterprise license. How can I remove the link shown on the login form called "First time logging in?"? I already changed the password for the admin user...

Thanks Simon

The UI source is under .../share/splunk/search_mrsparkle/ if you want to hack it out. I don't think there's an option to disable it.

Okay folks, I just got contact with the Support.

  • They opened an enhancement request to disable the first time loggin hint by configuration
  • The hint should really disappear after the first login. For me this didn't work, so I requested to analyze this if there might be a bug.
  • The only way to disable it, is to follow the instruction from parallaxed

All the best, Simon

Running 4.2.1 this can be enabled by removing any expired licenses via the Manager. Worked a treat.
