What's in this manual
Prior to Splunk 4.3, this manual was titled Splunk Developer Manual. However, with the introduction of the Splunk Developer Portal , which covers material related to development on Splunk using the Splunk SDKs and the Splunk App Framework, the Splunk Developer Manual is now more accurately titled Developing Dashboards, Views, and Apps for Splunk Web.
The content of this manual for Splunk 4.2.5 or earlier remains the same. The change in title does not affect any links or bookmarks to previous content. For Splunk 4.3, the manual contains updated content to reflect new features introduced with that release.
This manual contains information for building dashboards, forms, and advanced views. It also provides an introduction to building apps and add-ons for Splunk Web.
This manual no longer covers leveraging Splunk SDKs in your applications. Developers who want to use the Splunk SDKs or build and customize apps using the Splunk App Framework should visit the Splunk Developer Portal.
