We are working on something new...

A Fresh New Splunkbase
We are designing a New Splunkbase to improve search and discoverability of apps. Check out our new and improved features like Categories and Collections. New Splunkbase is currently in preview mode, as it is under active development. We welcome you to navigate New Splunkbase and give us feedback.

Add-on Debug Refresh

Splunk Cloud
This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
The intention / reason for this app is to reload changed configs on the fly so you can **test and validate** them.

It provides a custom search command `refresh` which reloads Splunk Configurations like when using the URL `http[s]://splunkservername:splunkport/en-US/debug/refresh`.


This is a Add-on for Splunk to provide a custom search command called 'refresh'
to reload most of the Splunk config endpoints.

It does not reload admin/cooked and admin/auth-services be default.

Simply call | refresh in the search bar to reload the endpoints. Use | refresh entity=all to also reload the splunktcp cooked REST endpoint (can result in data loss!)

Or specify an entity to be reloaded | refresh entity=foo

To get a list of all entities that can be reloaded use | refresh entity=list


  • Install as any other Splunk App


If needed you can enabled debugging to splunkd.log in the script refresh.py by
setting myDebug='yes' on line 6


This is an open source project, no support provided, but you can ask questions
on answers.splunk.com and I will most likely answer it.
Github repository: https://github.com/M-u-S/TA-debug-refresh

This TA has passed appinspect with the cloud tag, the result output is in the README directory.

Running Splunk on Windows? Good Luck, not my problem.
