Splunk Enterprise Security

Why are field aliases created by Cisco eStreamer for Splunk not showing in the Splunk App for Enterprise Security?

I installed the Cisco eStreamer for Splunk on my Splunk App for Enterprise Security search head, but noticed that field aliases created by the app are viewable from Search & Reporting, but not viewable from Enterprise Security.

so typing index=eStreamer at Search & Reporting shows a field called app (a field alias),
but typing index=eStreamer from the Search bar within Enterprise Security does not.

I checked the app permissions and it is globally shared, everyone read, and admin/ess_admin write.

App inheritance is managed for Enterprise Security. You can read about the details here. If you must have that field alias, you can import the app using the instructions, or export the specific functionality into a custom app that conforms to the ES app naming conventions.

Why on earth we have to import apps into ES, I don't know, but this answer solved many hours of troubleshooting and searching for me. Thank you!
