The Canary app is what you need to run Sideview views and apps in Splunk Enterprise 8 and beyond.
You can download it under the terms of the Sideview Free Internal License Agreement and test it out on either Splunk 7.X, or Splunk 8.
Beyond that, what you need to know about Canary depends on what kind of user you are.
- I am a customer of one of Sideview’s commercial apps
- I maintain (or develop) custom dashboards or apps written with Sideview Utils
- I’m a Splunk app developer, I read the above links but I want more technical details
Any and all feedback is welcome
If you want to try using Canary to build your own custom interactive dashboards for internal users, go for it. You can download it either from Splunkbase or from this site.
We are extremely interest in any feedback and any comments. No amount of detail is too large. Use our Contact page, or come find us on the Splunk Slack – @madscient_sideview and @richfez_sideview.
If you want to ask a tiny question or a huge question both are great. If you want to send 126 Advanced XML views and ask us if they will run in Canary, you can do that.
