Validate and package the add-on

Our add-on is almost complete. Let's validate it, which means Add-on Builder checks the add-on against best practices, and rules for CIM mapping, field extraction, modular inputs, and Splunk App Certification.

In the app's navigation bar, click Validate & Package, then click Validate to see if our add-on has any issues.

    Note  If you haven't entered your Splunk.com user credentials yet, you'll be prompted to do that first. If so, click Update Settings, enter your credentials, click Save, then click Return to Validation to try again.

The results show whether your add-on is ready for App Certification, and whether there are any errors or warnings. For details, see the Validation Rule Details table, which describes any issues and the recommended solution.

To package the add-on and download the .SPL file, click Download Package.
