The latest version of the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP is version 3.0.2. See Release notes for the Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP for the release notes of this latest version.

Version 3.0.1

In Splunk Add-on for NetApp Data ONTAP version 3.0.1, occurrences of biased terms such as master, slave, blacklist, and whitelist have been replaced with appropriate non-biased terms. The occurrences of biased terms that are Splunk platform references or present in the third-party library have not been removed.

If you are using per_panel_filter, ppf_subsearch, ppf_subsearch_dm, and per_panel_filter_lookup macros of the SA-VMNetAppUtils package in your custom dashboard or in the saved searches, then you must update the value of the filter field in the lookup file where you're using with these macros. All static variables values for ppf_lookup_type, ppf_filter have been updated from blacklist to denylist, and from whitelist to allow list.
