Version 9.0.2209

This version includes the following known issues:

Date filed or added Issue number Description
2023-10-20 SPL-241475 False positive message that a restart is required. User 'admin' triggered the '_reload' action on app 'splunk_monitoring_console', and completing an implicit app deletion requires restart. No restart is required and this message can be ignored.
2023-07-20 SPL-240969 props and transforms created with 000-self-services (000-self-services/local/transforms.conf) as the destination app get removed during sync triggered by actions such as saving rulesets in Ingest Actions.

Workaround:
Do not save search time field transformations to the 000-self-services app. Move the existing 000-self-services/local/transformations.conf under a different app.
2023-07-07 SPL-241821 Data Model Accelerations that have Automatic Rebuilds enabled may lead to unbounded memory growth due to search expansion, resulting in Out of Memory errors

Workaround:
For a data model that is experiencing high memory usage, perform the following steps:
  1. On your Splunk platform deployment, in Splunk Web, select Settings and then Data Models.
  2. Select Edit for the data model that is experiencing high memory usage, and then select Edit Acceleration.
  3. Open Advanced Settings.
  4. Disable Automatic Rebuilds.

See Accelerate data models in the Knowledge Manager Manual.

Furthermore, applying index constraints to restrict the list of indexes searched for building a given DMA summary and applying tags allowlisting would help curtail the memory usage.

2023-06-29 SPL-241368 Updating HEC token in Splunk Web with upper case 'Default' as the index causes an empty index to be set.
2023-05-30 Not applicable ACS endpoint connections fail after June 4, 2023 or HEC sessions fail after June 14, 2023 with error messages that mention SSL, TLS, or HTTP error 503 or 525. See Cloud Platform Discontinuing support for TLS version 1.0 and 1.1.
2023-05-22 SPL-240242 Federated Search: When exporting results, the remote search head (RSH) returns exceptions when it sees federated search head (FSH) socket errors. The RSH should ignore FSH socket errors.
2023-05-09 SPL-239689 In transparent mode Federated Search for Splunk, custom search commands and the "outputlookup" command should run only on the local deployment. Instead they run on the remote deployment, leading to errors, incorrect results.
2023-05-02 SPL-239436 In federated search, outputlookup existence check on RSH causes search to terminate early although it is not run on RSH in standard mode

Workaround:
Define the lookup on both federated search head and remote search head.
2023-04-28 SPL-239339 Workload Management ignores Place in Pool action.
2023-04-24 SPL-237902 Ad hoc searches that specify earliest relative time offset assuming from 'now' should explicitly include 'latest=now' to avoid a potential time range inaccuracy.

Workaround: Ad hoc searches searches that use the earliest time modifier with a relative time offset should also include latest=now in order to avoid time range inaccuracies. For example, if you want to get all events from the last 10 seconds starting at 01:00:10, the following search returns all events that occur between the time of 01:00:00 and 01:00:10, as expected: index=main earliest=-10s latest=now.

Running the same search without including latest=now might produce unpredictable results or impact performance in certain scenarios when the search head is overloaded with ad hoc searches. See Specify earliest relative time offset and latest time in ad hoc searches in the Splunk platform Search Manual.

2023-04-17 SPL-238767 Standard mode federated search with longer-than-a-minute from command searches might encounter socket ReadWrite errors when the federated provider points to a cloud load balancer, due to idle timeout on the LoadBalancer config

Workaround: If you encounter this issue, update the federated provider definition (created on the federated search head in Splunk Web), so that its Remote Host points to a remote deployment cluster member instead of to the remote deployment cluster load balancer.

2023-03-30 SPL-238029 Standard mode federated search - A multistats search with a tstats subsearch where prestats=t and a federated index is used as a data model throws an error.
2023-03-14 SPL-237265 Sometimes when a search is aborted by workload rule, 'wlm_terminated' information message is not written to audit log
2023-03-07 SPL-233037 For a KVStore autolookup with `case_sensitive_match` set to default/true, when the SPL searches for a case sensitive field value (that is, <field name as in props.conf>=<case sensitive field value>) the reverse lookup is performed incorrectly. The root cause is the default value of `reverse_lookup_honor_case_sensitive_match` being changed from true to false.
2023-01-26 SPL-235416 Case sensitive sourcetypes in Ingest Actions UI preview won't fetch results
2022-12-14 SPL-234045 "Invalid value" for earliest/latest in time token in "Advanced" time range section.

Workaround: Replace the Earliest/Latest values in the Advanced section of the time range picker. This temporary workaround must be done each time the dashboard is opened.

2022-12-02 SPL-226717 The behavior of the maxspan and maxpause arguments for the transaction command are currently reversed from the way they are documented in transaction in the Splunk Platform Search Reference. This bug will be fixed in a future release.

The following are the current behaviors for the maxspan and maxpause arguments:

maxspan
Syntax: maxspan=<int>[s | m | h | d]
Description: Specifies the maximum length of time in seconds, minutes, hours, or days for the pause between the events in a transaction. If value is negative, the maxspan constraint is disabled and there is no limit. .
Default: -1 (no limit)
maxpause
Syntax: maxpause=<int>[s | m | h | d]
Description: Specifies the maximum length of time in seconds, minutes, hours, or days that the events can span. The events in the transaction must span less than the integer specified for maxpause. Events that exceed the maxpause limit are treated as part of a separate transaction. If the value is negative, the maxpause constraint is disabled and there is no limit.
Default: -1 (no limit)
2022-10-12 SPL-226038 In a transparent mode federated tstats search of an accelerated data model that is located only on the FSH, results are returned only from the FSH, not the RSH, when summariesonly=t
2022-08-23 SPL-228969 Federated Search: In Splunk Web federated index UI you cannot provide data model Dataset Name values that contain a dot ( . ) character

Workaround: This is a limitation for users of standard mode federated search who want to set up federated indexes that map to data model datasets. It means that such users cannot set up federated indexes for data model datasets that are subordinate to a root dataset. For example, if the root data model dataset is Network_Traffic, you cannot map a federated index to the subordinate data model dataset Network_Traffic.All_Traffic.

As a workaround, users can run tstats searches that use the nodename argument to filter out data that does not belong to a specific data model dataset: | tstats ... where nodename=Network_Traffic.All_Traffic.

2022-07-29 SPL-227633 Error : Script execution failed for external search command 'runshellscript'

Workaround:
The setting precalculate_required_fields_for_alerts=0 can be set on saved searches that have no other alert actions attached aside from the "Run A Script" action, to quash the error. For saved searches that have multiple alert action attached, this may not be safe as it will disable back propagation of required fields for all alert actions, which might result in the parent search extracting more fields than required, which could negatively impact performance for that search.
2022-06-15 SPL-226877 Federated Search UI Error: Cannot create saved search dataset for federated index if dataset name contains space

Workaround: Use REST API to create the federated saved search instead:
curl -k -u <username>:<password> -X POST https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/nobody/search/data/federated/index -d name=federated:index_kathy -d federated.dataset='savedsearch:ss with space' -d federated.provider=remote_deployment_1.
See Federated search endpoint descriptions in the REST API Reference Manual.

2022-03-25 SPL-224816 Standard mode federated searches with tstats fail or produce unexpected behavior when prestats=t
2022-02-25 SPL-219793 Some commands in federated searches return incorrect resultCount values when run in Verbose mode

Workaround:
Use Verbose and Smart mode specifically for searches with transforming commands like stats, chart, and timechart, and then review the results in the Statistics tab. To review event counts, run non-transforming searches in Fast mode.

Search-time field extraction usually requires searches without transforming commands that run in either Verbose or Smart mode. When you run searches in Fast mode, you can ensure that search-time field extraction takes place for federated searches by appending | fields * to the ends of your searches.

2022-02-22 SPL-219540 outputlookup command in a federated search creates output on RSH
2022-02-08 SPL-218842 Some reporting commands in federated search return incorrect eventCount

Workaround:

Workaround:
Use another browser such as Chrome or Firefox

This version fixes the following issues:

Date filed or added Issue number Description
2022-07-27 SPL-227530 Splunk-to-Splunk federated search: After upgrade, the remote search head gets stuck in a loop of transferring proxy bundles to the remote indexers and failing.
2022-03-09 SPL-220289 Federated Search Transparent Mode: Commands that have subsearches like join and append may result in failures on RSH due to missing application context

Workaround:
If the search is being run in an application context that does not exist on the remote deployment, install the missing application on the remote deployment.
2021-10-21 SPL-214005 Victoria Experience self-service app install: Lookups deployed by apps cannot be managed via UI, Admin Config Service (ACS API), or Splunk REST APIs.

2022-07-27 SPL-227530 Splunk-to-Splunk federated search: After upgrade, the remote search head gets stuck in a loop of transferring proxy bundles to the remote indexers and failing.

Workaround: To stop a proxy bundle (pb_t1) from being sent endlessly from the remote deployment to it's indexers, you need to ensure that the local deployment generates a new bundle. Once this one new bundle is generated and sent to the remote deployment (as (pb_t2), the remote deployment will stop sending the previous bundle to the indexers.

To make sure that happens:

  1. There must be a valid transparent mode federated provider definition that connects the local deployment to the remote deployment that keeps sending the proxy bundle.
  2. You can create a dummy tag on the local deployment to trigger the bundle replication from the local deployment to the remote deployment.

To make sure that happens:

  1. There must be a valid transparent mode federated provider definition that connects the local deployment to the remote deployment that keeps sending the proxy bundle.
  2. You can create a dummy tag on the local deployment to trigger the bundle replication from the local deployment to the remote deployment.

Workaround: Disable the splunk_secure_gateway app.

2022-06-15 SPL-226877 Federated Search UI Error: Cannot create saved search dataset for federated index if dataset name contains space

Workaround: Use REST API to create the federated saved search instead:
curl -k -u <username>:<password> -X POST https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/nobody/search/data/federated/index -d name=federated:index_kathy -d federated.dataset='savedsearch:ss with space' -d federated.provider=remote_deployment_1.

2022-03-17 SPL-220932 On the Classic Experience, private app upload fails without any error message even when the AppInspect field check_that_app_passes_slim_validation_for_cloud triggers a warning.

Workaround:
Validate with AppInspect report that this check (check_that_app_passes_slim_validation_for_cloud) is triggering a warning. Address the warning to pass this section. Errors are typically related to SLIM and the manifest file(s) packaged within the app.
2022-03-09 SPL-220289 Federated Search Transparent Mode: Commands that have subsearches like join and append may result in failures on RSH due to missing application context

Workaround:
If the search is being run in an application context that does not exist on the remote deployment, install the missing application on the remote deployment.
2022-02-25 SPL-219793 Some commands in federated searches return incorrect resultCount values when run in Verbose mode

Workaround:
Use Verbose and Smart mode specifically for searches with transforming commands like stats, chart, and timechart, and then review the results in the Statistics tab. To review event counts, run non-transforming searches in Fast mode.

Search-time field extraction usually requires searches without transforming commands that run in either Verbose or Smart mode. When you run searches in Fast mode, you can ensure that search-time field extraction takes place for federated searches by appending | fields * to the ends of your searches.

Version 8.2.2202

This version includes the following known issues:

Date filed Issue number Description
2022-12-02 SPL-226717 The behavior of the maxspan and maxpause arguments for the transaction command are currently reversed from the way they are documented in transaction in the Splunk Platform Search Reference. This bug will be fixed in a future release.

The following are the current behaviors for the maxspan and maxpause arguments:

maxspan
Syntax: maxspan=<int>[s | m | h | d]
Description: Specifies the maximum length of time in seconds, minutes, hours, or days for the pause between the events in a transaction. If value is negative, the maxspan constraint is disabled and there is no limit. .
Default: -1 (no limit)
maxpause
Syntax: maxpause=<int>[s | m | h | d]
Description: Specifies the maximum length of time in seconds, minutes, hours, or days that the events can span. The events in the transaction must span less than the integer specified for maxpause. Events that exceed the maxpause limit are treated as part of a separate transaction. If the value is negative, the maxpause constraint is disabled and there is no limit.
Default: -1 (no limit)
2022-08-19 SPL-223193 "Open in Search" function doesn't work with chained searches in Dashboard Studio when the time range depends on an input/token, showing error "Invalid earliest_time"

2022-07-29 SPL-227633 Error : Script execution failed for external search command 'runshellscript'

Workaround:
The setting precalculate_required_fields_for_alerts=0 can be set on saved searches that have no other alert actions attached aside from the "Run A Script" action, to quash the error. For saved searches that have multiple alert action attached, this may not be safe as it will disable back propagation of required fields for all alert actions, which might result in the parent search extracting more fields than required, which could negatively impact performance for that search.
2022-06-15 SPL-226877 Federated Search UI Error: Cannot create saved search dataset for federated index if dataset name contains space

See Federated search endpoint descriptions in the REST API Reference Manual.

2022-05-02 SPL-223508 When trying to load a Studio dashboard, the page shows "Splunk Cloud is currently under maintenance."

Workaround:

  • Restarting the search head fixes the issue temporarily.
  • A more permanent workaround is to set set enforce_dashboards_csp=false under the [settings] stanza in etc/system/local/web.conf. After changing this setting, a restart will be required to take effect.
