Modify conf files directly

For certain situations, you might want to modify your add-on outside of the Add-on Builder by modifying files directly. Follow these guidelines for best results:

  • Make sure you have sufficient access permissions to any files you place in your add-on directory.
  • When modifying configuration files, for example to add stanzas, modify the version in the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/your_addon/default directory.
  • If you need to add a configuration file, add the file to the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/your_addon/default directory.


Advanced modifications might affect the add-on's eligibility for Splunk App Certification.

Hi Johannthum,

You can change the name of an add-on from the Add-on Builder landing page: click the “properties” of that add-on to rename it.

Hi, may I know if I can rename the built add-on? I tried renaming directly on the folder but my alert action didn't seem to work anymore. I think the generated code/libraries might have embedded the original name inside or I missed something. Thanks in advance!
