How to configure Splunk error pages / messages (like 404 not found)?


Hi all,

I use the web.conf file to configure login messages, ... Is it a similar method to configure error pages (like 404 not found)?
I could edit the templates in "splunk/lib/python2.7/site-packages/splunk/appserver/mrsparkle/lib/" but this is not an evolutive solution.

Thanks in advance for your time and help

Bump this question, would also love a solution to this. Need to return a specific HTML file when i hit 404 within my app.


404 is found here on my install:

C:\Program Files\Splunk\Python-2.7\Lib\site-packages\django\contrib\admin\templates\admin

Also wrapped up in code here:

C:\Program Files\Splunk\Python-2.7\Lib\site-packages\cherrypy\

And here:

C:\Program Files\Splunk\Python-2.7\Lib\site-packages\splunk\appserver\mrsparkle\lib\

Sometimes it depends on where you are in splunk web/api/etc the message/underlying code may change. There is not a way to do this with .conf flies.

Can we change the error page of a particular application of Splunk?

Actually I want to change the error page of my application not all applications of splunk.

Can we do it?

Thanks in Advance.
