Known issues

Date filed Issue number Description
2016-03-17 ADDON-8342 When configuring a JMX input using the "Use URL directly" method, the admin needs to use a hostname rather than an IP address so that the host field will be consistent.
2016-01-30 ADDON-7646 FIPS mode is not supported by this add-on. For a workaround, see Add-ons and FIPS mode in the Splunk Add-ons manual.
2016-01-13 ADDON-5325 requireClientCert=true in server.conf is not supported by add-ons using modular inputs and REST. If this setting is enabled in server.conf, communication is broken between the modular input and splunkd and the add-on stops collecting data. The following error appears in the splunkd.log: "SSL3_GET_CLIENT_CERTIFICATE:peer did not return a certificate." The workaround is to set requireClientCert=false.
2015-09-09 ADDON-5437 If the Splunk Add-on for Service Now or the Splunk Add-on for Box is installed and data inputs have been configured in one of these add-ons, then the inputs are disabled, the Splunk Add-on for JMX is unable to get data from a configured Tomcat server. This affects Splunk Add-on for JMX 3.0.2 or older.
2015-09-07 ADDON-5383 /APPSC-432 Fails to generate eventgen data on Windows platform.
