As Splunk scales, it grows with more Splunk engineers, developers and users. Maintaining proper knowledge object development, deployment changes and best practices can become a daunting task where fear-driven development takes its toll. In this session we present our enhancement of Splunk’s scalability in terms of software management, continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) by providing a framework which consists of DevOps tooling in combination with our Splunk expertise. Specifically, we are able to maintain a proper Splunk development cycle by using Docker containers, configuration and secret management with Ansible and version control with Git (VCS), all achieved by taking advantage of Splunk's ".conf" versatility. Our result is a CI/CD development-to-testing-to-production framework that complements Splunk’s scalability with modern DevOps culture and facilitates a smoother yet moderated development experience.
