Why are app icons only visible to users with the admin role?

Path Finder

Hi Team,

When I log in to Splunk Web as a non admin userm I am not able to see the app Icon image. When I log in as an admin, I am able to see all Apps having the required icons. Please let me know if there is any changes or settings that is required to be made.

Error when I inspect element is:

GET https://awsananva1069.jnj.com:8000/en-                     :8000/en-US/splunkd/__raw/servicesNS/test_ca/sos/static/appIcon.png:1 GET https://awsananva1069.jnj.com:8000/en-US/splunkd/__raw/servicesNS/test_ca/sos/static/appIcon.png 403 (Forbidden)

Thanks,
Soumya

You need to add these two capabilities to roles

  1. restappsview
  2. restpropertiesget

One lists the properties of the apps and other gets the information from the listed properties.

After adding user role to all the users the issue got resolved.

It is worse than that. Sometimes you get icons and sometimes you don't and I cannot figure out any rhyme or reason for it but the inconsistency of visibility of icons is baffling and it has always been an irritation to me and I have never been able to pin it down but TRUST ME. Admin users can have missing icons sometimes, too.
