Dev Platform

Welcome to the Splunk UserVoice. We look forward to your feedback in helping us to deliver a stellar developer experience!

Note: The Developer Platform UserVoice site is for feedback and suggestions to improve Splunk’s Developer Experience. Posts not specifically related to enhancing the platform will be removed.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Please make the developer pages avaulable for offline use like docs.splunk.com

    The dev.splunk.com pages are incredibly helpful. I work in a non-internet connected environment for splunk dev. I request that you please make the dev.splunk.com pages available for for offline use. docs.splunk.com has done this and its really useful.

    thank you for considering my request.

    • An app to edit/create props and transforms.conf which include field extraction and all other stanzas. Something like lookup editor.

      • Enable the default search bar to be prefilled with something on a per app basis

        Different apps will generally use different sets of indicies. Defaulting to the right ones is helpful!

        • Eliminate the necessity to restart Splunk when new .js/.css files are added to an app

          Would be nice to have a debug/refresh endpoint for those artifacts. Even better if you could automagically load any added or updated .xml, .js or .css files. Even better if this feature could be configurable, so it could be enabled on dev environments and disabled in production.

          • Create clustered index from the GUI/WebInterface

            It would be great to create new clustered index on the master then push it out to the peers - all this from the GUI/Web Interface without touching indexes.conf manually.

              • Splunk .conf file lint process

                We are using Jenkins and git manage Splunk configurations. Splunk is entirely deployed via DevOps tools. We are looking for a tool to lint Splunk config files before merging into master.

                • Implement an F5 experience for Visual Studio

                  When I press F5, VS will build my code, create the SPL file, deploy it to the server, run the app on the server, and attach to the app process. Breakpoints, locals, etc. should "just work".

                  Stretch goal: implement edit-and-continue.

                    • Allow for creating Indexes in a cluster via the SDK

                      Currently there is no way to create an index in a clustered Splunk through the SDK. We currently get around it by creating a symbolic link from the search app to the master-apps folder on the master. We create an index on the master and then have a custom search command to run a shell script to apply the cluster bundle. Would be great to have this supported in the SDK.

                      • Add SecureString support for NET SDK logins

                        We’ve been trying to tighten up our password handling, and NET has the SecureString class for handling passwords. Is there any possibility of getting an overload of the Service.Login method for the SDK that takes one of these objects for the password?

                        Our use-case is that when the Splunk SDK is in use in, for example, an IIS ASP.NET website, we want to keep the plaintext of the Splunk login credentials around for as short a time as possible. Usually one would just load the credentials up, send the appropriate REST call, and zero the memory.

                        NET unfortunately makes that…

                        • Dynamic drilldown

                          Easy way to control drilldowns from all elements. Today drilldowns from map and single elements are very limited compared to table. Maybe/likely there already is some way, but why not as easy as with table element?

                          • R integration into Splunk

                            Can we leverage rich set of 'R' library functions into Splunk? R has rich set in machine learning which are not in Splunk currently. If we marry both R and Splunk SPL, we can get un-matched capability into splunk.

                            • Provide an easier method for selecting several options using the Multi Select form input

                              Currently, in Splunk 6.x when using the example multi select form input, you must individually click each option you want to add to the form input. You cannot "shift click" or drag select multiple options. Each must be chosen individually, which becomes cumbersome if you are selecting lots of options (20+).

                                Today you can call a saved search and fetch the results as CSV/XML. It would be great to be able to fetch a PNG/JPG image of a predefined graph. This would be very beneficial for reports, websites etc.

                                • Need an intermediate development environment for creating modules

                                  There should be a simplified development environment to create modules that will retrieve / generate information for Splunk to index that falls between simply running a one-line cronjob, and building a django module.
                                  Perhaps a GUI interface to setup simple commands (or PS commandlets) that can be run in a particular sequence. Also, it would be important to offer guidance in structuring and formatting the gathered data to best fit built-in capabilities such as Pivot tables.
                                  Finally, have a simple way to pair searches and translation to the module, keeping it within the same interface / realm for cohesion.

                                  • Custom search command support for additional languages

                                    Today custom search commands are only supported in Python (http://dev.splunk.com/view/python-sdk/SP-CAAAEU2). This feature will add the ability to implement in other languages similar to the way Modular Inputs are supported.

                                    • Improvements in django tags

                                      When I started using django tags in new Splunk Web Framework I was a bit dissapointed, because there are two features that were availble in simple/advanced XML missing. One is to export results from table/open results in search. Another one is how to get value of GET request. For that I have made javascript workaround, but you have to know a bit about javascript.

                                      In my opinion django tags are missing some features, but they are step into right direction, our dashboards are loading much, much faster since we are using them, keep up the good work! :)
