JMS Messaging Modular Input: Why is nothing happening with my current inputs.conf configuration?

I have the following configuration in the inputs.conf file, but nothing seems to be happening. I loaded up the bin folder with all the jars that are needed, but there is no logging to the $SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log. I am just kind of wondering how we are supposed to know if a connection was made or if errors are occurring. Thanks.

[jms://topic/EventTopic]
init_mode = jndi
jms_connection_factory_name = RemoteConnectionFactory
jndi_initialcontext_factory = org.jboss.naming.remote.client.InitialContextFactory
jndi_provider_url = remote://remote.testing:4447
durable = false
sourcetype = syslog

Any errors can be searched with : index=_internal ExecProcessor error jms.py

I was able to do that search as well as look at the logs but the issue is nothing is being written. I know the values are correct and when I enter values that I know to be wrong I still do not get any errors. One would assume that if the JMS cannot connect to the topic an error would appear.

Perhaps you have a more systemic error , work through the troubleshooting steps in the docs : https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1317/#/documentation

That could be the case. If I go through Splunk -> Settings -> Data Inputs -> JMS -> New is it supposed to add something to the input.conf? Currently the only way this is written to is if I open it up and manually add the configuration to it. Thanks .
