January 16th, 2017: Layer8Insight App for Splunk v1.2 Released

The Layer8Insight App for Splunk has been updated to version 1.2 and is posted on Splunkbase. This release is focused on improving deployment monitoring within the app.

NOTE: version 1.1 of this app changed the internals of the JavaScript components of the app. Because of these changes, components in the XML were greatly changed since previous releases. There is a good chance that customizations to the XML from previous versions will not work the same after updating to this release. Please double-check any customizations, and contact your OctoInsight representative if you need help or clarifications.

The Layer8Insight Indexer App for Splunk is still at version 1.1.3 and unchanged.
