About Splunk Home
Splunk Home is the initial page in Splunk Web. Splunk Home is an interactive portal to the data and applications that you can access from this Splunk Enterprise instance. The main parts of the Splunk Home page are the Apps panel, the Explore Splunk panel, and the Splunk bar.

The Apps panel lists the applications that are installed on your Splunk instance. The list shows only the apps that you have permission to view.
When you first open Splunk Web, you see Search & Reporting and 7.0 Overview in the Apps panel. The Search & Reporting app is sometimes referred to as simply the Search app. The 7.0 Overview" is an app that contains information about the new and updated features in the 7.0 version. There might be other apps listed on the Apps panel if other applications are installed on your computer.
