Hi Vishnu, I am trying to create a POC to integrate the splunk with Jenkins, I found this link and based on the document, I have gone through the steps, and downloaded the Zip file from the git repository splunk-devops-plugin-master. Followed the below steps.


Installed Java 1.8 version in 64 bit Windows Platform.

Installed Jenkins-2.190.3 in 64 bit windows Platform.

Splunk Enterprise 7.3 (Single instance deployment method).

Installed Splunk App for Jenkins 2.0.

Created HEC token in splunk.

Configured Splunk plugin for Jenkins.

Test Connection --> Splunk connection Verified.

Validating the connection checking the Splunk console and able to see the below events information when we perform "Test Connection"

10:04:25.036 PM ping from jenkins plugin raw event ping
host = xxxxx source = http:jenkins sourcetype = text:jenkins

Configured custom metadata -->
Data Source --> Build Event
Config Item --> Index
Value --> Customer_index

But when I am trying to check with Splunk APP for Jenkins, unable to see any data, so could you please guide me how /where to trouble shoot this issue.
