Splunk Web is the Splunk browser-based graphical user interface. This topic discusses how to find the pages in Splunk Web that you need to complete this tutorial.
Finding Splunk Home
Splunk Home is your interactive portal to the apps and data accessible from this Splunk deployment.
By default, Splunk Home is the first page that you see when you log in. Otherwise, your account might be configured to start in another view such as Search or Pivot in the Search & Reporting app.
You can return to Splunk Home from any other view by clicking on the Splunk logo on the Splunk bar.
Use the Splunk bar
The Splunk bar is common to every page in Splunk Web. You will use it to switch between the editor views when you create data models and pivots in this tutorial.
The Apps panel lists the apps that are installed on your Splunk instance that you have permission to view. Select the app from the list to open it. When you have more than one app, you can drag and drop the apps within the workspace to rearrange them.
You can do two actions on this panel:
- Click the gear icon to view and manage the apps that are installed in your Splunk instance.
- Click the plus icon to browse for more apps to install.
The Data Model and Pivot editors are part of the Search & Reporting app.
Explore Splunk Web
The options in the Explore panel help you to get started using Splunk Web. Click on the icons to open the Add Data view, browse for new apps, open the Splunk Enterprise Documentation, or open Splunk Answers.
