Ingest Zoom logs in Splunk Cloud without a Heavy Forwarder?


Is it possible to use Splunk Connect for Zoom in a managed Splunk Cloud environment without an on-prem Heavy Forwarder? As far as I'm aware, Zoom only supports webhook-based logging which isn't compatible with Splunk Cloud (for some reason). Using a Heavy Forwarder isn't an option but open to other workarounds if any exist.

Scenario is:
- Running a managed Splunk Cloud instance on version 7.2.9
- Running an Inputs Data Manager (IDM) instance on version 7.2.9
- No heavy forwarder

Alternative is to use http event collector (HEC) raw endpoint directly along with allowQueryStringAuth setting. This will allow you to specify HEC token directly in the URL.

Note: On cloud you'll have to open a support ticket to set allowQueryStringAuth to true on your HEC endpoint
