Splunk platform requirements

The Analytics Workspace runs on the following Splunk platforms:

  • Splunk Cloud Platform version 8.0.0 and later

For Splunk Enterprise system requirements, see System Requirements in the Splunk Enterprise Installation Manual.

Upgrading Splunk Enterprise

Analytics Workspace is installed by default in Splunk Enterprise version 8.0 and later. Prior to Splunk Enterprise 8.0, Metrics Workspace provided similar functionality to Analytics Workspace. In Splunk Enterprise 7.3, Metrics Workspace is installed by default, but in Splunk Enterprise 7.2 and earlier, Metrics Workspace is a standalone app.

If you used Metrics Workspace with Splunk Enterprise version 7.2 or earlier in a search head cluster environment, before you upgrade to Splunk Enterprise version 7.3 or later, remove the splunk_metrics_workspace app from the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/shcluster/apps directory. Complete this step before running any configuration deployments.
