I would like to use simple UI Splunk tools to define indexes, data inputs, etc using Splunk UI and store these configurations in a GIT repository. The reason is that GIT repository is a standard for NN, all configurations should be stored there and distributed to various Splunk servers within the company.
We are using a homegrown app which allows a user from the webui on our integration search head, to push and pull to a git repository. This allows people without local filesystem access on a search head to maintain the app in the git repository.
In addition we have on one of our search head cluster nodes a cron job which pushes the apps to a dedicated branch in the git repository so we can keep track of changes introduced on the production.
