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".
(thinking…)

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

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

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

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

      • Event Logging from the Browser

        There's a great Node.js library for splunk logging (https://github.com/splunk/splunk-javascript-logging) but its not quite built for browsers as its a CJS module. Would be a great option to include this library from a CDN and start logging!

        See discussion @ https://github.com/splunk/splunk-javascript-logging/issues/4
        Thanks.

        • syntax highlighting in the search bar to make the searches better readable and distinguish between the keywords and other parts of the searc

          The bigger the searches get, the harder it is to understand them and troubleshoot. Syntax and color highlighting tlike any other IDE's will make the learning of search language much easier and faster.

          • when viewing results, the text selection add/exclude menu is great, but would like to have option to prepare the search without auto submit

            When viewing search results, allow user to turn off auto submit for the text selection.

            The text selection pop-up menu is great, but would like option to revise the search before submitting, ie: like the Wireshark prepare display filter option on right click menu.

              Useful for when learning and experimenting with how to get a search done correctly, trying different variations etc...

              • Search options such as: "same period last week", "same period last month", etc

                This is manually doable but I'm not sure if it's possible to set up an easy option to compare performance, say, over the last 24hrs, with the same window from last week by simply clicking a button.

                • Ability to add a time-shifted overlay to results

                  For dealing with transactions from customers who are primarily in a different timezone to Splunk users, eg. reading our results in Pacific it would be neat to see an Eastern overlay on the timeline.

                  Possibly as simple (for the user!) as showing a second timeline with arbitrary time shift.

                      • Easy Installation Process as easy as Drag and Drop and few drop downs to chose

                        If we simplify process further process.For an Enterprise level Deployment, we would certainly look for some UX as easy as filling up User Sign In form.Easy steps capable of Hybrid Distributed Deployment,Real time suggestions based on distribution of clusters,indexing volume,Number of user & Data to analyse, the customer base would grow faster.Drag and drop features for installation (like what we do in case of UML) would certainly something more easier and simple.

                          • edit users, roles and and default apps via the GUI against a search head cluster.

                            allow more GUI configuration when using search head clustering or indexer clustering. eg, edit users, roles and and default apps via the GUI against a search head cluster.

                            • Example of how to use existing Session key in the Splunk SDK (rather than logging in explicitly)

                              I'm surprised and even a little confused that there's no example of how to use the Python SDK within a custom python controller in a splunk app.
                              All of the SDK examples assume you're going to explicitly login and there's no illustration of how to give the relevant classes the session token instead.

                              This means app developers writing custom python controllers (and imo pretty much everything python in their splunk apps), using the older Entity class to talk to Splunkd, or using the REST API directly.

                                Hi Nick

                                We do support this in our Python SDK. It is in our reference doc, but adding a sample is a good idea.

                                If you look here: http://docs.splunk.com/DocumentationStatic/PythonSDK/1.5.0/client.html you can pass the “token” as a parameter to “connect” or to the service constructor. You can see an example there of passing the token directly.

                                “After creating a Service object, you must call its login() method before you can issue requests to Splunk. Alternately, use the connect() function to create an already authenticated Service object, or provide a session token when creating the Service object explicitly (the same token may be shared by multiple Service objects).”

                              • Enable sort option in Forwarder Management Settings

                                Like in other settings view, enable sorting option in forwarder management settings view for Clients, Apps, Serverclass.

                                    • Add clone panel button for WYSIWYG dashboard editor in context menu

                                      I know that I can edit source code directly and copy/paste panels quickly and add panel with add panel button and use clone from dashboard section but it would be useful to be able clone panel from panel context menu in edit mode before delete button.
