Splunk AWS Addon not working in AWS c2s

New Member

I am not able to get Splunk AWS Addon to work in c2s. I assume that the Addon is using boto and boto3.
Is there a way to reconfigure boto configs and profile used by the Addon?
Has anyone successfully configured Splunk to capture alerts in that environment?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
Luke

I was able to get the add-on to work in a C2S clones environment. We used a Heavy Forwarder and had it assume through an EC2 Role with the Splunk IAM Policy attached. How are you trying to connect into the environment?

Hey,
Our Splunk environment is provisioned in c2s so we are connecting from inside the environment. We have attached the IAM role with policy to the head server. The problem is creating an account when configuring the AWS app. The app discovers the IAM role automatically but it assigns “Global” as the region. If I configure the account in AWS app manually, the drop down menu shows a list of all the regions but the c2s region is not there to select.

When you say c2s clones environment, are you referring to gov-cloud? We have this working in gov-cloud but are running into issues in c2s. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

When you say c2s clones environment are you referring to gov-cloud? We have it currently working in gov-cloud but it is not functioning in c2s. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
