Add-on for Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway: TMG logs not parsed based on tmg sourcetype

I have installed universal forwarder on TMG server to monitor tmg specific log files. Added the following to inputs.conf under /etc/system/local

[monitor://C:\ISALOG*]
disabled = false
sourcetype = microsoft:forefront:tmg:proxy
index = tmg

I have installed the TMG add on for splunk and have the sourcetypes to parse the data. The forwarded data from universal forwarder are parsed based on default sourcetype. most of the fields are not parsed. i understand universal forwarder are capable of only forwarding the data. In splunk server, how do i set the receiving log files to be parsed based on a specific source-type.? i have many other logs coming in through the same port from different universal forwarders.

Hi @prithvi08,

Based on documentations https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3011/#/details, you need to install this Add-on on Splunkforwarder as well because microsoft:forefront:tmg:proxy uses INDEXED_EXTRACTIONS which applies on forwarder not on indexers.
