Building for the Splunk Platform

How to fix AppInspect check_for_vulnerable_javascript_library_usage from Add-on Builder content?

Some of my apps are failing AppInspect's check_for_vulnerable_javascript_library_usage check but I didn't include any javascript. I did built the apps with the Splunk Add-on Builder and I see some javascript that was packaged as a result.

Is there a fix for this?

There is a fix!

The Version 4.1.0 Release Notes show that these items were fixed! The way to update your app is a bit nuanced. You'll need to:

  1. Export the app from any Add-on Builder
  2. Import the app into Add-on Builder v4.1.0 or newer
  3. Download the app packaged from Add-on Builder v4.1.0 or newer

The resulting app package that you download will have the fix!

You can validated by running the old app package against AppInspect with the `cloud` tag, then run the fixed app package against AppInspect with the `cloud`. See Send requests using the Splunk AppInspect collection for Postman  on splunk>dev for more guidance.

I inherited the maintenance of an app that was built with a version of add-on builder that is triggering this warning. Unfortunately, I do not have access to an export of this app from add-on builder. Is there a way for me to make this change without an export then import?
