Splunk


You can use the Splunk connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Splunk and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Splunk, you first must establish a connection to Splunk. Follow these steps to connect Splunk to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Splunk row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • URL - Enter the URL for your Splunk endpoint (for example, https://YourSiteName.splunk.com:8089).

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to your Splunk account.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to your Splunk account.

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme. The default scheme is Basic.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
