Splunk Add-On for Windows Event Cleanup- What is happening to my data?

Hi All,

I am currently working on ingesting WinEventLog:Security data and noticed that the event has been cleaned up even though I didn't configure the SEDCMD extractions in my props configuration. Please note that the props.conf in my local folder is exactly the same copy of the props.conf in my default folder.

I am looking specifically at the certificate information and would like it to be seen in my data in Splunk

This is what it looks like in Splunk:

I expect to also have the same data as what I have in my source

Any idea what happened and how can I troubleshoot to determine what's causing this to my data?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

We have the configurations in the deployment server which I wasn't able to use btool command but I was able to figure out what causes the missing text/lines. Apparently, there are other Windows TA folders configured and  I got to see where the SEDCMD extractions were enabled. I checked the source type configurations in our SH Cloud and found that the extractions were renamed differently instead of having the default 

     SEDCMD-clean_info_text_from_winsecurity_events_certificate_information = s/Certificate information is only[\S\s\r\n]+$//g

it was renamed to SEDCMD-clean2 s/Certificate information is only[\S\s\r\n]+$//g.

Appreciate your response! 🙂

Have you verified with btool that the shown props.conf  setting are applied?
