Splunk Enterprise Security

Many new apps in Enterprise Security - can I disable them?

I upgraded to the latest version of Enterprise Security (v6.0) and it installed many new apps and add-ons for systems/applications/sources that we don't have including:

  • Splunk Add-on for AirDefense
  • Splunk Add-on for CEF
  • Splunk Add-on for Juniper
  • Splunk Add-on for RSA
  • and many more...

My question is, can I disable the apps/add-ons that I don't need or will this adversely affect ES? Also, after disabling the app, how can I fully delete it so that it no longer appears in the apps list (I like to run lean and prefer not to have unused software installed).

Thanks!

Hi,

You can disable the ones that begin with TA- or Splunk_TA_. Deleting them is an option as well, if you like, delete the folders from filesystem.

I see the TA- and Splunk_TA now... those are the folder names. Thanks again!

Ok and how about the ones that begin with "Splunk Add-on for ...".

All of the apps that I'd like to disable begin with Splunk Add-on...

Thanks
