Changes for Splunk App developers

If you develop apps for the Splunk platform, read this topic to find out what changes we've made to how the software works with apps in version 7.3.x, and how to migrate any existing apps to work with the new version.


  • Django Web Framework is removed from the product in Splunk Enterprise 7.3.0. Django Web Framework was first deprecated in Splunk Enterprise 6.3.0. Apps and pages that are built using Django Web Framework will not work in Splunk Enterprise 7.3.0 and later, and will return a 404 error. Customers should migrate Django-based apps and pages to Simple XML or HTML Dashboards framework.
