Building for the Splunk Platform

How would you package your Splunk App that uses dashboard studio without losing any pictures or icons?

Hello Splunkers,

I have a question with building Splunk Apps with Dashboard Studio. My question has to do with portability of the Splunk app.

Given that the traditional way of building Splunk apps via Simple XML allows you to save images in the Static folder inside your Splunk app.  So whenever you download the App on Splunkbase you have everything you need.

Unlike Dashboard Studio that saves your images & Icons in the KV store. 

With this in mind, how would you package your Splunk App that uses dashboard studio without losing any pictures or icons? 


Thank you,

Marco

Yes, that is currently the issue with the dashboard studio that kvstore images won't bundle with App.

But you can use the old solution, add images under appserver/static and use the relative reference, it still works with Dashboard Studio. (You can do that at the end as well by just updating the JSON file of your dashboard, "src" attribute I think)

Yes, that is my dilemma. I'll just package the app with pictures pointing to the appserver/static/images and test if the images stick.

 

I appreciate the feedback.
