Hello guys,

what is the correct way to install "Splunk Dashboards app (beta)" : https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/4710/ on SHC? Is it OK to use shcluster/deployer?

Thanks.

Hi @realsplunk,

as you can see here https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/DashApp/latest/DashApp/Install  To install the app in distributed environments, see "Use the deployer to distribute apps and configuration updates" (https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.0/DistSearch/PropagateSHCconfigurationchanges in the Splunk Enterprise Distributed Search manual.

Ciao.

Hi @realsplunk,

on a SHC you can install Apps only using the Deployer, there isn't another way.

For more infos see at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.0/Admin/Deployappsandadd-ons#Deploy_apps_to_cluster...

Ciao.

Of course but do you know if this app only requires installation on search heads? Thanks.
