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.

  1. Maven Repository support

    Does http://splunk.artifactoryonline.com/splunk/ext-releases-local have maven2 support? Having trouble setting up a proxy with our Nexus-Sonatype server.

      Are there any plans to add json logging to splunk-library-javalogging?

      • Allow Splunk administrators to impersonate users

        Allow Splunk administrators to impersonate users.

        Administrators should be able to impersonate other users for testing purposes. When impersonating another user, the administrator has access to exactly what that user would have access to in the system, including the same dashboards etc. Splunk records anything the administrator does while impersonating another user as having been done by that user.

        Use this feature to test what different users can do in the system and to perform actions for them in their stead.

        Servicenow has this feature: http://wiki.servicenow.com/index.php?title=Impersonating_a_User#gsc.tab=0

        • Enable the ability to use a different "From" email address when triggering email alerts in the UI

          Several of our user groups have their own specific app from which they create reports, dashboards, send alerts, etc. They would like the ability to configure the "From" email address to be something like a shared support email mailbox for the alerts under their particular app. This would over ride the global setting under Settings » Server settings » Email settings.

            • More examples for C# SDK, Allow users to post sample code

              It seems there is a lot of possibility using the SDKs, but the learning curve is killing me. There is not enough context to the commands to intuitively know what to do. I would love to have examples on how each area of the SDK is used. Maybe on the C# SDK reference we can post code samples. I don't see any examples on how to configure the deployment data inputs or anything else on a server with the SDK.

              • Put an IDE "sublimetext" to the edit of .xml and .html files from dashboard

                The idea is that we can modify on the fly the source code. And when we save it, the save buttons of the source Splunk work at the same time.

                • We need to see the log file, when we save the source and it don't work

                  When the there is an error, the display don't write nothing about the error.
                  Very important is to see the error log, of the WEb Server.

                  • 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.

                    • Provide a mean to add top values (and similar) drilldowns to graphs in dashboards simlar to what is displayed in interesting fields

                      Provide a mean to add top values (and similar) drilldowns automatically to selected graphs in dashboards similar to what is displayed in interesting fields. As in page popups refreshing/narrowing down the associated graph results dynamically as selected for example.
                      This would really help in troubleshooting event trends, etc...

                        • 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.

                                • 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.
