Release notes for the Splunk Platform Upgrade Readiness App
The Splunk Platform Upgrade Readiness App version 2.2.0 was released on January 27, 2020. This version is compatible with Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud Platform versions 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 8.0, and 8.1.
This version of the Splunk Platform Upgrade Readiness App has the following known issues and workarounds.
|Installing the Splunk Cloud Gateway App and then running a scan causes the Upgrade Readiness App to hang. If you delete the Splunk Cloud Gateway App, the Upgrade Readiness App resumes working, and you can run scans.
|If you are upgrading from Splunk Platform Upgrade Readiness App v1.0.0 to this version, delete the old version of the app and clear your browser cache before installing this version. If you upgrade the app and do not follow this process, the scan might skip some apps.
|The scanning process might terminate abruptly on Windows systems.
|Scans can hang if scan time exceeds user session timeout limit. Hung scans appear to still be running. Select Cancel Scan to end the scan, and then break up your list of apps into multiple scans of smaller batches. Alternatively, increase your session timeout duration beyond the 60 minute default before running long scans. See Configure user sessions timeouts.
|When all apps pass the scan, sometimes the app does not show the results.
|Sometimes the scan fails if it encounters a permissions issue with an app, rather than skipping the app.
|Scan might skip files with syntax errors.
|If you run the Upgrade Readiness App locally many times in a row, it might begin skipping checks.
|CherryPy endpoint check results display web.conf instead of the Python file. Find the Python file in the Python scripts check.
|Mako template scan does not parse Python syntax. It returns all Mako templates. Manually check Mako templates for Python incompatibilities.
|Readiness App displays unfriendly error message when user without permissions attempts a scan.
|Scan results for check 1 differs for different operating systems.
|Results from check 1 and check 2 are displaying relative paths instead of full paths.
