How to remove a website from the Website Monitoring app?

I am currently using the website monitoring app and I want to remove a website from this app, when I go into the manager I can remove this input but in the status summary I still see the old website as showing up even though I'm not connecting to it. How do I clear out these old websites from the app?

The app currently doesn't filter out data from inputs that are removed. I can look into adding something like that (perhaps a filter option in the UI). I'll look into it as soon as I can and will be tracking the work at http://lukemurphey.net/issues/891.

Update:
I am implemented the ability to filter disabled inputs over a year ago but forgot to update this post. Version 1.1 and following include this feature.

I know this thread is quite old. I have installed this app and added lots of websites (say ~60) 20 of those websites do not connect, so I removed them. They are still showing up in my results. I have tried the change to the filter_disabled, but that has not worked either.

Where does the index or "file" live so that I can purge it manually?

Add url field in join statement

Setting > Advanced search » Search macros

Replace filter_disabled

From

| join source [| rest /services/data/inputs/web_ping | search disabled=0 | fields title id | rex field=id ".*[/](?[^/]*)" | eval name=urldecode(name) | eval source="web_ping://".urldecode(name)]

TO

| join source [| rest /services/data/inputs/web_ping | search disabled=0 | fields title id url | rex field=id ".*[/](?[^/]*)" | eval name=urldecode(name) | eval source="web_ping://".urldecode(name)]

@LukeMurphey , I'm on version 2.7 and still unable to remove the URL that has been removed from Inputs on the status overview screen. Please help.

Would also appreciate any hint on how to remove old URLs. If I added a wrong URL it will constantly show up under "Executive Summary" and "Status Overview", even though the data input has been removed.
Unfortunately I did not find a manual way to remove unwanted URLs as it seems impossible to remove specific data sets.
Even though they do not show up any more when not included in filtered time range, which is good.

I have tried to reproduce this but it has been working for me. Can you check the lookup named "web_ping_inputs.csv" and see if the removed input is in the lookup?

Also: could you let me know what version of the app you are using?

I have version 2.7 installed and it does NOT filter out disabled or deleted urls / websites.
Trying to find the web_ping index or file to purge manually.

Hi all:)
I have updated the filter_disabled but it still shows removed websites.
Do I need to restart the Splunk app?
