Installation for this add-on is fairly straight forward. You can install it through the Splunk GUI.
You do not need to do anything to configure this app other than wait. Usually we recommend waiting about 10 minutes before checking in on this app just due to the nature of how often data is generated from your Nest devices.
If you'd like to speed up the process we recommend doing the following.
One optional configuration step you can take is to configure the TA-wunderground app. This will allow for some dashboards to populate different panels. For instructions on installing that app visit https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1257/
If you want to integrate that data into the Nest App for Splunk, you'll need to update the lookup table named home_view_city.
There are two relevant fields in here:
name - this is the name of your nest account. It can be found in your data under data.structures.<account_id>.name
city - this is the City configured in the wunderground TA.
Simply click the app in the App Drop Down and you should be off and running.
There are three reasons you may not see data in the dashboard right away.
This app is still very new and there have been a number of great requests so far. If there is a visualization you'd like to see added, please e-mail us and we'll see what we can do.
Email support for this app is available during weekday business hours (US, East Coast).
