Choose which Splunk apps to show dashboards from in the mobile apps

In Splunk Secure Gateway, admins can choose which apps to show dashboards from in the Connected Experiences mobile apps. This configuration is global. Dashboards from the apps you choose show for all devices registered to the Splunk platform instance with this configuration.

Default behavior

The Connected Experiences apps follow the role based access controls (RBAC) set in Splunk Web. The Splunk Web RBAC settings take precedence over the Splunk Secure Gateway App Selection page settings. If an App Selection page setting conflicts with a Splunk Web RBAC setting, the Splunk Web RBAC setting prevails.

If a user is unable to view a dashboard in Splunk Web, they're unable to view it in the Connected Experiences mobile app. To learn more about RBAC, see Use access control to secure Splunk data.

Users are able to view any dashboards in the Splunk Mobile alerts they receive, even those from apps that you don't select.


  • Your Splunk platform meets the Splunk Secure Gateway requirements. See Splunk Get Secure Gateway to learn what the requirements are.
  • You have the admin or sc_admin role.
  • Your users have a Connected Experiences app on their device.

  1. In Splunk Secure Gateway, navigate to the Administration tab.
