Help Solving btool errors from alert_manager app

All,

I've started seeing the following error message on Splunk 8.2.1 since installing alert_manager app and I'd like to clean it up.

- Error from my deployment server, from btool checks
- Version Splunk 8.2.1
- CentOS7
- I have /etc/deployment-apps/alert_manager/README/alert_manager.conf.spec there. So I assume that's what it's looking for.


# Error
08-10-2021 13:23:41.948 -0700 WARN Application [28063 MainThread] - No spec file for: /opt/splunk/etc/deployment-apps/alert_manager/default/alert_manager.conf\n

# alert_manager.conf, line 12 under [settings] stanza
auto_close_info = false


# alert_manager.conf.spec, line 40, under [settings] stanza
auto_close_info = [true | false]
* Configure if informational events are automatically resolved
* Defaults to false

 

Any ideas on how I'd troubleshoot this?

The file needs to be named alert_manager.conf not alert_manager.conf.spec.

alert_manager.conf.spec is a reference file.

Thanks for replying. 

The app has both alert_manager.conf and alert_manager.conf.spec in it. Neither of which have any obvious problems that I can see. Nevertheless Splunk btool is complaining.

Remove the /etc/deployment-apps/alert_manager/README directory from your deployment app and try again. The .spec files are reference and contain examples with descriptions of parameter  that are not valid values. That is why you are getting the errors.

Also consider putting any other configs you modified in /etc/deployment-apps/alert_manager/local
Never directly modify configs in the default directory.
