Build Splunk Apps With New Technologies
DEV1328C — How I Built It: Extending the New Dashboard Framework for Real-World Applications
Want to unlock advanced dashboarding and visualization capabilities? Great! Now you can extend the core dashboard framework to create custom layouts, visualizations, data sources, event handlers and more. Join us to learn more about how to get started extending the dashboard framework, and see how it can come together to build powerful Splunk applications with customer examples.
DEV1134A — Introducing Splunk UI Framework: Build Splunk Apps With React
Whether you’re a current or new Splunk App developer, we have exciting news for you: We’re launching the Splunk UI Framework — a set of state-of-the-art frontend application development tools and libraries based on React to help you build powerful and flexible apps for the future. Learn the details and where you can go for resources and help.
DEV1595B — Splunk + React = :Mindblown
Last year, we got a glimpse of Splunk and React working together in harmony to create powerful applications that move beyond the dashboard paradigm. We’ll continue breaking the barrier between a single page application and a Splunk app, showcasing custom 2D and 3D interactive visualizations, spring animations for fluid UIs and responsive styling, all natively in Splunk. Come learn more about the technology that powers a new generation of mission cybersecurity applications at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Get Data With Webhooks and Add-On Builder and Custom Search Commands
DEV1635C — Case Study on Building a Splunk Integration Using a Webhook API and Serverless Functions
Learn how the Splunk for Good team built several Splunk integrations with various Webhooks APIs using an entirely serverless architecture; why this is so important for your organization as you journey to the cloud; and, better yet, how you can do the very same thing.
DEV1463B — This API Is Legit, It Needs a Splunk Add-On!
For Splunk users, more data means more valuable insights and outcomes. There are always more data feeds, user interfaces and tools! Learn how we made new commands and apps for Splunk. Now, integrating the feed API, merging the results with data and building useful dashboards is accessible to all organizations. We will run through the tools and commands we built in, how we merged with traditional data and some dashboards that are now core to our threat hunt efforts.

Manage Your Splunk SPL Searches like Code!
DEV1132B - How To Become the Best SPL Reviewer
Learn how to set up an independent Collaborative Development Environment (CDE) in Splunk. This includes a way to share indexes (raw data) of remote indexers and create data summaries in the local indexer of each developer. This makes it easy for developers to add their own changes to Version Control System (VCS) and review SPL in saved searches. Perform more in-depth code reviewing with Compare Search App we developed. Now, don't be afraid of collaborative development.
Use Splunk with GitHub to Build Better Software Faster!
DEV1453B – Touring the Software Factory: Get Visibility Into Your Pipeline Analytics to Ship Better Software Faster With Github
Whether you're a Security Ninja, DevOps Guru or an ITOps Rockstar, this tour of the factory has something for everyone. The first stop on the tour will be source code storage, where you can spot the hive of activity buzzing around different repos. Then it's off to the assembly line, where we'll see code move through different pipelines and packaging. We'll wrap up our tour at quality control, where you'll see agents investigating malicious commits or knock-off libraries. The software factory is more exciting than you may have thought, and Splunk has teamed up with GitHub to release a new set of add-ons and apps to provide easy visibility into your GitHub based factory!
