Optional Configuration (German or Japanese language support):

  • The app version 6.4.0 and onwards supports German and Japanese languages apart from English. By default, Splunk automatically uses the language that the user's browser is set to. To switch languages, either the browser's locale setting can be changed or for a given Splunk session it can be changed by modifying the URL that you use to access Splunk. For different languages use the URL as specified:

  1. German : http://<your_splunk_instance_address>/de-DE/app/BNW-app-powerconnect/

  2. Japanese: http://<your_splunk_instance_address>/ja-JP/app/BNW-app-powerconnect/

  3. American English: http://<your_splunk_instance_address>/en-US/app/BNW-app-powerconnect/

  4. British English: http://<your_splunk_instance_address>/en-GB/app/BNW-app-powerconnect/ *(Replace the placeholder in the URL)

Note: In case the dashboard is not getting shown in the expected language after going to the appropriate URL, the user should clear the browser cache and refresh the dashboard.
Note: Description works for Splunk version 7.3.x and above
