Splunk Enterprise version 8.x

Key features of Splunk Enterprise 8.x have been migrated to use the Python 3 runtime. As a result, versions of Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) and Splunk Enterprise Security (ES) released before October 2019 are not compatible with Splunk Enterprise 8.x.

ITSI versions 4.4.0 and higher are compatible with the Python 3 runtime. For more information, see Python 3 migration with ITSI in the Splunk Enterprise Python 3 Migration manual.

ES versions 6.0.0 and higher are compatible with the Python 3 runtime. For more information and specific limitations, see Python 3 migration with ES in the Splunk Enterprise Python 3 Migration manual.
