Just commenting here because I'm not sure that the documentation is really clear on the point: when adding a local database like sqlite, the database name should be the fully qualified path to the database file.

Correct.

Alternatively you can place the SQLite file into $SPLUNK_HOME/var/dbx (you might need to create this directory) and name it as database_name.sqlitedb, then you can use "database_name" instead of the fully qualified path.
