  • 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 File System dashboard’s SAP Instance input does not filter the results of the main panel. A fix can be found in KB 188 - Instance filter non-functional in Splunk File System dashboard
