Splunk offers certification for apps and add-ons created by developers in our community. By certifying your app or add-on after publishing it to Splunkbase, you give your users the confidence of knowing that Splunk has analyzed your app or add-on according to a strict set of criteria. In order to maintain customer confidence, once an app or add-on is certified all future versions must also undergo certification. Updates to certified apps will not be publicly available on Splunkbase until the new version is certified. Customers will still be able to download the current certified version.
Note: This documentation supplements the Working with Splunkbase manual, which provides detailed instructions for how to submit apps and add-ons to Splunkbase. Your app or add-on must, at a minimum, conform to the approval criteria set forth in the Working with Splunkbase manual, including categorization, documentation, support availability, and packaging and naming standards. The certification criteria provided in this documentation are in addition to those set forth in the Working with Splunkbase manual.

The Splunk App Certification Program offers apps and add-ons that Splunk has examined and found to conform to best practices for Splunk development. Splunk also performs a review of your source code for security vulnerabilities. Splunk is willing to attest to the quality and support status of the apps and add-ons it certifies for operation in single-server and/or distributed Splunk deployments.
Splunk does not, in any way, warrant the accuracy, reliability, completeness, usefulness, non-infringement of our community or partner developers. Splunk shall not be liable or responsible in any way for any losses or damage of any kind including lost profits or other indirect or consequential damages related to the use or, or reliance upon, Splunk certified apps or add-ons.
