Custom app setup options

You can create a custom app setup experience using HTML, Simple XML, or Setup XML. Declare the custom setup view in app.conf.

By default, Splunk software checks for app configuration on requesting any view from the app. If the app is not configured, Splunk software redirects to the setup experience.

Splunk software checks for setup file formats in the following order.

  • HTML
  • Simple XML
  • Setup XML

If there is no HTML or Simple XML setup view, then the Setup XML experience is used.

Here is an example of the app.conf setup view configuration.

is_configured = false
setup_view = my_custom_setup_page
