I'm currently the Splunk admin and I have about 40 users of Splunk. I want to put a dashboard on the app/launcher/home showing what indexes are available. I don't want to do this manually, but rather add the dashboard once and have it apply to all their accounts. How would I do this?
This many not be the best answer or the ideal one, but here is how I accomplish this. If you are using the deployment server or SHC master create an new app called user-prefs. Now create a user-prefs.conf in user-prefs/default/. Add the following into the user-prefs.conf which will make a dashboard default for all users. This will make user-prefs a managed app so be careful.
default_namespace = $default
appOrder = search
display.page.home.dashboardId = /servicesNS/nobody/<your_app>/data/ui/views/<dashboard>
# display.page.home.dashboardId = /servicesNS/nobody/search/data/ui/views/indexes_in_splunk
# NOTE: showWhatsNew is no longer used
showWhatsNew = 1
