How to disable Splunk app using deployment server?

Path Finder

Hi all,

I have deployed an app using a deployment server in Splunk.

Suppose I got a new update for that app and I need to upgrade it.

I have below search:

  1. Since I am using deployment server to push the update on deployment clients, how can I take back up of that app installed on a specific client (I assume it would help me in recover an old app if anything goes wrong)? Will below command help me for this point?
    /opt/splunk/bin/splunk disable app -auth Username:Password

  2. "disabled-apps" folder will help me to revert the changes in any case?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Tejas

Before starting the update, the app on the client is the same as the app on the deployment server, right?

So just take a backup of the app on the deployment server before you replace the app with the new version. And then the clients will pull the update. In case of any issues, restore backup on deployment server and the clients will pull the old version again.

Adding more on this:

Can we disable or take back up of any app from deployment server? If yes, how?

In deployment server, Edit the app.conf and change the state manually.. and restart to push the modified
[install]
state=disabled

@tbavarva - You can copy the particular app folder from /opt/splunk/etc/apps/ from your deployment client to take back-up.
