End of Availability: Splunk-Built Apps and Add-ons

Today, we are announcing the end of availability for a number of Splunkbase apps and add-ons. This announcement starts the clock for a 90-calendar-day end of support window. At the closure of this window, these apps and add-ons will no longer be available from Splunkbase, and Splunk Support will no longer be able to help debug the apps in question. The applications listed below lists the date of announcement and when the window ends.

The following lists of apps and add-ons are organized into four sections:

  • End of Support
    The first section covers apps that are moving out of support following the closure of the 90 day window. 
  • End of Life
    The second section covers apps that are will be End of Life’d (EoL’d). This means after the 90 day window closes, the apps will no longer be supported and download links will be removed from Splunkbase.
  • Open Sourced
    The third section are for those applications that have been open sourced for further development, following the close of the 90 day window the Splunkbase page will point to the Github repo, and support for these apps will be handed over to the community.
  • Transferred to Partners
    The fourth and final section are for those applications that have been transferred to partners for further development and either already have replacements available on Splunkbase, or will soon. Apps in the third section will be removed from Splunkbase and support requests will be redirected to the partner in question.
