Why am I unable to delete TCP port 1514 in Splunk Web?

I am not able to delete port 1514. After I tried deleting it, it's still there. Please help on this. Please refer the screen shot as well.

Hi. May I know where do you view all your ports?
I don't know where to search them in my Splunk.

My guess is the input was defined (by mistake) in an inputs.conf in a default folder. Run the following command from your CLI:

splunk cmd btool inputs list --debug | grep tcp://1514

This should show you where exactly the input is configured. Go there to delete it. If it is in the default folder of an app (or worse, system), this was the reason you couldn't remove it via the UI.

The equivalent windows command (if you are Windows instead of *nix) would be

splunk cmd btool inputs list --debug | findstr tcp://1514

Just in case you needed it. 🙂

Have you tried restarting Splunk afterwards to see what happens with this input then?
