How do I monitor Splunk DB Connect Health when using SplunkCloud?


We have a working and up and running Splunk DB Connect installation on an onprem HeavyForwarder that we installed the SplunkCloud app on. So now all data is sent to our SplunkCloud instance.

The problem is that the Dashboards for monitoring of DB Connect Health is empty. I'm guessing that this is caused by the SplunkCloud app that forwards all data including the _internal index to SplunkCloud, so the dashboards do not have any data to display.
I see 2 solutions, either install the Health dashboards with datamodels and all, in SplunkCloud, or somehow configure the HF to retain the debug data locally.

Has anyone solved this problem, and how did you do it?
