I am a Advanced beginner to splunk and i want to create custom app/addon in my search head cluster environment and push via deployer to all shc members

Note: We have GUI disabled in our environment to create apps/addons through shc members

Also how can i place app and tar and untar app/addon in shcluster/apps directory and push to shc members via deployer.

Please help with steps for best practice

Hi @obais9346 

  I suggest to use this very helpful app "Splunk add-on builder" and try the apps or add-on on a test enviroment.

https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2962/

When you tested your add-on or app you can put on the Deployer  in $Splunk_Home/etc/shcluster/apps directory, so you need to manually copy the app to that directory. 

run this comand

 

 

splunk apply shcluster-bundle -target <URI>:<management_port> -auth <username>:<password>

 

 

for more details there is the documentation

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.1.3/DistSearch/PropagateSHCconfigurationchanges

let me know if you need more informations
