Set the following properties for your project:

Add-on name The name of the add-on. This name, with the "TA_" prefix and "_" instead of spaces, is also used as the app's folder name under $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/.
Version The version number of the add-on, which appears with the add-on in Splunk Web.
Author The author name, which appears with the add-on in Splunk Web.
Description The description of your add-on.
Visible Indicates whether you want the add-on to be visible in the Splunk Web app list. By default, add-ons are not visible.
Icon Upload an image file to use as the icon for your add-on. The Add-on Builder creates a large version (72x72 pixels) and a small version (36x36 pixels) of the icon from this image.
Theme color The color to use for your add-on.

Click Next to save your settings and continue to the next step. If you edit certain settings later (such as renaming the add-on or changing properties for visibility or theme color), you are prompted to restart Splunk Enterprise to load your changes.
