If you are upgrading from a version older than 1.3, you'll need to reconfigure the app to utilize the new authentication configuration:
1) Go to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/crittercism/local and delete the two files app.conf and crittercism.conf. If instead of crittercism.conf, you see a file called password.conf, delete that one as well.
2) Restart Splunk
3) Re-configure the integration using your Apteligent username and OAuth token. You can generate a new OAuth token in the OAuth Tokens tab in the user's settings page here: https://app.crittercism.com/developers/user-settings
4) Update complete! Note: you may have to wait 10 minutes for new data to appear.
There are three ways to install the app.
1) From the Splunk interface, go to “Find More Apps” which brings up the Splunk App Store.
The Splunk App Store is a directory of apps that can be installed with one click.
Find the Apteligent app and click on “Install free.” Then restart Splunk.
2) Install the app from file through web interface.
From the Splunk interface, go to “Manage Apps” then click on “Install app from file.”
Upload the Apteligent app named "apteligent-splunk-<version number="">.tgz"
3) Install the app from file through the command line. Untar the Apteligent app under the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps directory and restart Splunk.
As of version 1.3.7, Apteligent's Splunk integration allows you to select our EU data region at setup. Simply tick the "Use EU data region?" box on the setup screen.
The app requires a Apteligent username and OAuth token. You can generate a new OAuth token in the OAuth Tokens tab in the user's settings page here: https://app.crittercism.com/developers/user-settings
Note: the customer must have API access privileges.

Go to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/crittercism/local and delete the two files app.conf and crittercism.conf. Then restart Splunk.
For example, on a Mac, these files are located on /Applications/Splunk/etc/apps/crittercism/local
This app will create a new index called "crittercism" upon installation. This index must exist on any indexer that is receiving crittercism data.
The Apteligent app should be installed on a maximum of one indexer or persistent forwarder. All search heads should have the apps installed with the disabled input script. (The dashboards need to be installed on the search heads, and then the script disabled.)
Upgrading is performed in the same manner as installation.
The app retrieves data from the Apteligent API. The app then creates a special Apteligent data index.
Currently (as of April 15, 2015), there are 10 API calls made to Apteligent API endpoints made every 10 minutes.
Each dashboard consists of various panels showing tables, charts, and other visualizations. Each panel is a specialized search query into the underlying
The app has been tested against Splunk versions 6.0, 6.1, and 6.2.

Delete the directory $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/crittercism then restart Splunk.
From a command line, run the following command:
splunk clean eventdata -index crittercism
Known errors reported in the Splunk console: “duplicate labels”
This error can occur if the app is installed on the same Splunk instance as a different user. If so, the fix is to delete the existing crittercism index then to restart the Splunk server.
