Advanced Configuration

In addition to all of the Splunk-native configurations, the Broken Hosts app has additional internal configuration. These items are considered “advanced” and may or may not be useful to you. These settings can be found in bh.conf.


  • comments_must_have_ticket_number (boolean) - Primarily intended for Hurricane Labs managed Splunk customers. Enforces a restriction on the comment field of the Broken Hosts Lookup requiring a 5-or-more digit number to be entered for change management purposes (in the format #12345). The default value for this setting is false.
