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.
