Is there a way to group apps in Splunk deployment?


We have started to use the Splunk Deployment within in our infrastructure and I was wondering if there's a way (including an add-on) to group the applications based on specific topics.
For example, we are looking to group the applications based on products and create under each main application their corresponding sub-apps (this should allow us to have a better overview of the entire landscape and keep everything under control).

Current setup:

Options 1:

Product -> where a product has 10 different servers, with 3 different roles (role1,role2 and role3). In this case, we end up with monitors that should only for role1 being setup on role3.

Options 2:

role1, role2, role3 as separate apps - is also an option, but when we end up with over 100 apps things get a little bit hard to manage and we loose overview.

Splunk's deployment server uses a flat app structure. The only grouping of apps is by server class.
Perhaps another tool like Ansible or Puppet will do what you desire.

If this reply helps you, an upvote would be appreciated.


Are you talking about Splunk App's to group? - Right now there is no way to group the Splunk Apps.
If you want to group the data - Please give more details about events that you are having in your Splunk.
