When writing about numbers that appear in a Splunk UI, duplicate them exactly as the UI displays. Otherwise, follow these guidelines.

Use numerals for numbers associated with versions.

When referencing maintenance builds, minor versions, or releases for a product, use a lowercase "x" at the relevant place in the version name. Don't substitute "v" for version before the number. See the following examples:

  • Splunk Enterprise 6.1.2
  • Splunk Enterprise 7.x
  • Splunk platform versions 6.6.x and 7.0.x
