GLOBAL SETTINGS


 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.
   * This is not a typical conf file for configurations. It is used to set/create
     tours to demonstrate product functionality to users.
   * If an attribute is defined at both the global level and in a specific
     stanza, the value in the specific stanza takes precedence.

[<stanza name>]
* The name of the UI tour.

* Optional.

type = image|interactive

  a series of screenshots or images.

* Optional

doneURL = <string>
* A Splunk URL that redirects the user once the tour is over and they click a
  link or button to exit.
* Optional.
* Helpful to use with the 'doneText' setting to specify a starting location for the user
  after they take the tour.
* The Splunk link is formed after the localization portion of the full URL. For example, if the link
* is localhost:8000/en-US/app/search/reports, the doneURL will be "app/search/reports".

forceTour = <boolean>
* Used with auto tours to force users to take the tour and not be able to skip.
* Optional

For image-based tours

 You can list as many images with captions as you want. Each new image is created by
 incrementing the number.

imageCaption<int> = <string>
* The caption string for the corresponding image.
* Optional.

imgPath = <string>
* The subdirectory relative to Splunk's 'img' directory in which users put the images.
  This will be appended to the URL for image access and not make a server request within Splunk.
  Ex) If the user puts images in a subdirectory 'foo': imgPath = foo.
  Ex) If within an app, imgPath = foo will point to the app's img path of
      appserver/static/img/foo
* Required only if images are not in the main 'img' directory.

context = <system|<specific app name>>
* String consisting of either 'system' or the app name where the tour images are to be stored.
