BEFORE COMPLETING THIS STEP: For Splunk Cloud customers running PowerConnect Splunk app versions 7.0.0-7.3.0, please refer to Knowledge Base #173 to address a bug specific to Splunk Cloud that may prevent the Master Inventory Lookup (and potentially other KVstore-based lookups) from generating properly.
The Lookups need to be populated with the event data. This step is required to be performed only once as there are separate saved searches scheduled to run every hour for appending new items to existing lookups from new events. In some cases, this step is done only to populate static data in the lookup once. There are two ways to complete this step:
Open the dashboard “Wizard for New SAP SIDs and Instances Discovery” under PowerConnect > Wizard menu.
Select the checkboxes corresponding to the desired search names.
Click on the “Run Searches” button.
The status of the search would get updated in the Status column of the table. The user can view the search results once the search has completed by clicking in the table cell.
The step would be complete when all the searches specified in the table have completed execution successfully with the exception of “Cloud CPI Source - Lookup Gen - Run Once Only” search.
The SAP Cloud searches are only required when use of the corresponding dashboards for SAP Cloud products will be implemented.
On Splunk's menu bar, Click on Settings -> “Searches, reports, and alerts” and manually run all the saved searches with the suffix ” – Run Once Only”. In case of a large number of events, if saved search execution does not get completed, try to reduce the time range and populate the lookups.
Configuration is now finished for the Splunk app.
Note: If you are using SAP Cloud or want to change app language to German or Japanese; kindly follow the optional Post Installation Configuration
