Esteemed Legend

Are you using the add-on-builder? It has this built-in. You can use it and see what code it generates and then just copy that out.

Open your add-on in the Add-on builder, and in the setup page, use the 'password' text box for password.The user will need to have edit_storage capability . This will save the password in an encrypted form . https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/AddonBuilder/2.2.0/UserGuide/Createasetuppage

I am using our own APP which is created via splunk.
1) can we modify Password through through "Add=on builder"
2) if i want to add new setup page in Settings--->data inputs---> new page like UDP ,TCP ,Scripts.
Is it possible to create through ADD-On builder?
