Introduction to Dashboards : designed for power users who want to learn best practices for building and editing JSON-based dashboards in Dashboard Studio. It focuses on creating inputs, editing dashboard source code, chain searches, event annotations, and improving dashboard performance

Dynamic Dashboards : designed for power users who want to learn best practices for creating JSON-based, interactive dashboards in Dashboard Studio. It focuses on creating user inputs, editing dashboard source code, chain searches, event annotations, and improving dashboard performance.

Advanced Dashboards and Visualizations : designed for advanced users who want to create SplunkJS-based dashboards and forms. It focuses on creating dashboards, adding inputs, using event handlers and creating Splunk Custom Visualizations.

Building Splunk Apps : focuses on Splunk Enterprise app development. It's designed for advanced users, administrators, and developers who want to create apps using the Splunk Web Framework. Major topics include planning app development, creating data generators and data inputs; the REST API, setup screens, KV Store, and app packaging.

Developing with Splunk's REST API : for developers who want to use the Splunk REST API to interact with Splunk servers. In this course, use curl and Python to send requests to Splunk REST endpoints and learn how to parse and use the results. Create a variety of objects in Splunk, learn how to change properties, work with and apply security to Splunk objects, run different types of searches and parse its results, ingest data using the HTTP Event Collector and manipulate collections and KV Stores.
