Splunk Add-on for AWS error: Not data collection tasks for aws_description is discovered. Doing nothing and quitting the


Hello, I have an Enterprise instance in an EC2 instance (all in one box, free trial) and trying to get CloudTrail logs to it using the "Splunk Add-on for AWS" (S3 Bucket > Event Notification > SNS > SQS > EC2 Instance with IAM Role ). In the logs from _internal I see that the files are picked up from S3 ( message="Wrote data to STDOUT success.", message="Sent data for indexing.",  message="Delete SQS message" etc. ) but then I get only these messages:  message="No data input has been configuredexiting..." and  message="Not data collection tasks for aws_description is discovered. Doing nothing and quitting the TA.". The CloudTrail logs do not show up in main indexer or anywhere else so everything is lost somewhere after this <<message="Sent data for indexing.">>

Again, everything is in one box in EC2 (Splunk Enterprise free trial). If anyone has a solution to this, it would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
