Determine your Splunk Cloud Experience
Your Splunk Cloud deployment has one of two possible Experience designations: Classic or Victoria. The Experience designation refers to the underlying indexer tier architecture on which your Splunk Cloud deployment is running. For information on the differing capabilities of each Splunk Cloud Experience, see Differences between Classic Experience and Victoria Experience.
To determine your Splunk Cloud Experience:
- In Splunk Web, click Support & Services > About.
- In the About panel, under Splunk Cloud, find your Experience: Classic or Victoria.
Differences between Classic Experience and Victoria Experience
Classic Experience and Victoria Experience provide nearly identical capabilities, with the following exceptions:
- SSAI (Self Service App Installation): Splunk Cloud deployments on the Victoria Experience support self-service app installation for the vast majority of public apps available on Splunkbase.
- IDM (Inputs Data Manager): Splunk Cloud deployments on the Victoria Experience no longer require IDM (Inputs Data Manager). Modular and scripted inputs, previously supported by IDM, can now run directly on the search head without the additional overhead of a separate IDM instance. If your deployment previously included IDM, it is no longer needed and will be removed when Splunk upgrades your deployment to the Victoria Experience.
Splunk assigns your deployment to an appropriate Splunk Cloud Experience for you. You cannot independently change your current Experience. For further details, contact your Splunk Cloud representative.
