Manage the Splunk Product Guidance app on your Splunk Cloud Platform deployment

Splunk Product Guidance (SPG) is an application that augments your current Splunk Cloud Platform deployment with contextually appropriate guidance for numerous use cases and tasks.

Your Splunk Cloud Platform users can review targeted guidance on using specific data sources and running searches for various Splunk Security, Splunk IT, and Splunk Observability use cases. SPG lets Splunk Cloud Platform users of any role and expertise level access content hosted on Splunk Lantern while staying within the Splunk Web experience.

SPG in Splunk Cloud Platform

SPG is available on versions 8.2.2109 and higher as one of the default apps in the Splunk Cloud Platform.

SPG is only available on Splunk Cloud Platform deployments that don't use a premium app like Splunk Enterprise Security or Splunk IT Service Intelligence. For more information about the premium app solution subscriptions, see Splunk premium solutions in the Splunk Cloud Platform Service Description.

When the SPG app is enabled, your users see the SPG widget on the following pages in Splunk Web:

  • Search page of any app
  • Add data, located in the left panel in Settings
  • Source Types, located in the DATA category in Settings

Disable or re-enable the SPG app

Use the Manage Apps page to manage the SPG app.

You must be a Splunk Cloud Platform administrator with sc_admin permissions to disable and re-enable the SPG app for your Splunk Cloud Platform deployment.

If you are running a search head cluster using the Classic Experience, you must file support ticket to disable the SPG app. If you have a support contract, log in and file a new case using the Splunk Support Portal. Otherwise, contact Customer Support.

Complete the following steps:

  1. Access the Manage Apps page by one of the following methods:
    1. From the Splunk Home page, click the Manage Apps icon (Manage Apps icon) in the Apps panel.
    2. From anywhere in Splunk Web, click Apps in the top menu bar, then Manage Apps.
  2. Locate Splunk Product Guidance in the list of displayed apps.
  3. Click Disable in the Status column.

Disabling the SPG app removes the SPG widget from three pages in Splunk Web: Search, Add data, and Source Types.

To re-enable a disabled SPG app, follow the procedure and click Enable in step 3.
