Is the Splunk Add-on for Nessus supported on Windows?


good morning

I installed the universal forwarder on the Windows box, and the Splunk Add-on for Nessus. It doesn't work. Is the Splunk add-on for Nessus supported on Windows?

This inputs.conf file isn't for Windows OS

Nessus scripted input using custom directories

[script://./bin/ -s /opt/nessus/incoming -t /opt/nessus/parsed]
disabled = false
interval = 120
index = _internal
source = nessus2splunk
sourcetype = nessus2splunk

thank you for your help

The nessus add-on utilizes Splunk's built in python, which doesn't come with universal forwarders. You have to use a full Splunk instance.
"This add-on does not support universal forwarders for data collection because the add-on requires Python."
