Release Notes for Splunk Enterprise Security

Version 4.5.x of Splunk Enterprise Security follows version 4.2.x of Splunk Enterprise Security.

What's New

Version 4.5.x of Splunk Enterprise Security requires Splunk platform version 6.4.x or 6.5.x. To use the updated asset and identity correlation functionality, you need Splunk platform version 6.4.4 or later.

New features in the cloud-only release of Splunk Enterprise Security 4.2.x that you might have missed.

Add-on deprecation

In a future release, Splunk Enterprise Security will no longer include all of the add-ons listed in Add-ons provided with Enterprise Security. Instead, you can download the add-ons that you need directly from Splunkbase. This change improves the performance of Splunk ES by reducing the number of unnecessary enabled add-ons, and allows you to install the most appropriate and updated versions of add-ons when you install Splunk ES.


Deprecated features

  • The alert action Include in RSS feed has been removed from Enterprise Security. Correlation searches currently configured to include alerts in RSS feeds will stop sending alerts in RSS feeds.
  • The globedistance.py search command is deprecated and will no longer produce search results. Instead, use the `globedistance` macro.
