TA for SplunkStart New Dashboards

Admins: Please read about Splunk Enterprise 8.0 and the Python 2.7 end-of-life changes and impact on apps and upgradeshere.
This TA is an add-on for the SplunkStart app hosted on Splunkbase.

It includes 10 new dashboard options, including ones that incorporate user interaction and dynamically change accordingly, display the data in visually-appealing ways, and allow you to see trends and correlations in your data. In this TA, there is a total of 38 unique dashboard panels powered by 36 different macro-based searches.

Out-of-the-box, almost of all of these macro-based searches use _internal data contained in every instance of Splunk, so you can see what each dashboard looks like once you install the TA. You can easily edit these searches to use YOUR data by simply editing a form on SplunkStart to use your own index, sourcetype, and field names.

First install SplunkStart. Then, download this TA and gunzip/untar (tar -zxvf) it somewhere on the same machine as SplunkStart. The TA does not need to be in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps. Next cd into the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/SplunkStart/bin directory and execute the create_content.sh and it will copy the contents of this TA to SplunkStart. Once you restart, you will see these 10 new dashboard options within the SplunkStart app. For complete details, read the README.txt or the details section of this TA.

Author: Stephanie Wang

This Add-On Requires the user to download and install the SplunkStart App
from Splunkbase. It is at: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3577/

After installing SplunkStart, you can use this TA.

Installing the TA

Unpack the downloaded TA in whatever directory it is found in. Then from the command line, cd to the SplunkStart/bin directory. It is located in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/SplunkStart/bin.

Run the script from the bin directory of SplunkStart:

./create_content.sh <path to directory of this TA>

./create_content.sh ~/Downloads/TA_SplunkStart_New_Dashboards

This will append the necessary files from the TA to the local directory and the default.meta in the TA to SplunkStart's metadata/local.meta directory. The titles files will also be copied from the TA to the src/titles directory

IMPORTANT: From command line, run cp <pathway to TA directory>/TA_SplunkStart_New_Dashboards/appserver/static/sw_* $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/SplunkStart/appserver/static/. (make sure you include the . after the static/)
This is needed to copy the .js and .css files needed in 3 of the dashboard panels.

cp ~/Downloads/TA_SplunkStart/New_Dashboards/appserver/static/sw_* /Applications/Splunk/etc/apps/SplunkStart/appserver/static.

Alternatively, just copy the .js and .css files in the appserver -> static folder of the TA into the appserver -> static of SplunkStart
You must now restart Splunk. Once it's up, go to the Web interface of Splunk and do a https://localhost:8000/en-US/_bump


Go into the the SplunkStart App from SplunkWeb. Click on Configure Splunk Start App->Modify Dashboard Macros and notice that there are 10 new tabs. Within these 10 tabs, there are 36 macros that you can modify to use your own data with the TA. The common fields you would enter are your index name, your sourcetype, earliest time (-15m, -1d, -2Y, etc) and latest time (now). Some of the dashboard panels require you to download other apps-- to get the full functionality of this TA, download from Splunkbase:

Waterfall Graph
Calender Heat Map
Boxplot Viz
Location Tracker
Splunk Machine Learning Toolkit
Punchcard Viz
Number Display Viz
Semicircle Donut Viz
Status Indicator Viz

For more information about each of the macros and what fields you need to enter, go to the src folder within TA_SplunkStart_New_Dashboards -> macros folder -> macros_new_dashboards.txt

Note that unlike SplunkStart and the SplunkStart Basic Security Essentials TA, the formatting for the panels are NOT found in the saved search, but rather in the dashboard XML. This means that the search and macro themselves are not associated with the chart type and formatting (in most cases) and that the XML is necessary in order to get the desired appearance of each panel. Changing the macro/saved search will not impact the XML, however, so you can make whatever changes and additions to macros that you want and the formatting of the panel will remain the same. You can also copy the XML and use it for dashboards not in this app!

Some of the dashboard panel formatting (ie, XML) is taken from Splunk Dashboard Examples or Splunk demo
