Issue with App Configuration Replication in Splunk Cloud Victoria Experience

Loves-to-Learn Everything

Hello Splunk Community,

I'm encountering an issue with configuration replication in Splunk Cloud Victoria Experience when using search head clusters behind a load balancer. Here's the scenario:

I have developed a private custom search command app that requires some user configuration. For this purpose, I've added a custom config file in the /etc/apps/<appname>/default directory. Additionally, I've configured the app.conf as follows:


reload.<custom_conf> = simple

deployer_push_mode = full


I've also included a server.conf inside etc/apps/<appname>/default with the following configuration:

conf_replication_include.<custom_conf_name> = true

When attempting to install this private app using the install_app_from_file option in a Splunk Cloud Victoria Experience with search head clusters behind a load balancer, it appears that the app configuration is not being replicated across search heads.

Could someone please assist me in identifying if there's anything I'm missing or doing incorrectly?

Thank you.
