The following are the spec and example files for itsi_service_template.conf.


# Copyright (C) 2005-2020 Splunk Inc. All Rights Reserved.
# This file contains attributes and values for creating and uploading modules
# in Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI). 
# To set custom configurations, place an itsi_service_template.conf in
# $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/SA-ITOA/local/. You must restart Splunk software to 
# enable configurations.
# To learn more about configuration files (including precedence) please see
# the documentation located at
# http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/ITSI/latest/Configure/ListofITSIconfigurationfiles
# CAUTION:  You can drastically affect your Splunk installation by changing these settings.  
# Consult technical support (http://www.splunk.com/page/submit_issue) if you are not sure how 
# to configure this file.


# Use the [default] stanza to define any global settings.
#  * You can also define global settings outside of any stanza, at the top
#    of the file.
#  * Each .conf file should have at most one default stanza. If there are
#    multiple default stanzas, attributes are combined. In the case of
#    multiple definitions of the same attribute, the last definition in the
#    file wins.
#  * If an attribute is defined at both the global level and in a specific
#    stanza, the value in the specific stanza takes precedence.
