According to the Windows Infrastructure App documentation, it states the following:
**"The Splunk Add-on for PowerShell***
All of the add-ons that come with the Splunk App for Windows Infrastructure require the Splunk Add-on for PowerShell to function. You install this add-on into universal forwarders on machines that forward Active Directory and DNS data."*
However, the Splunk Add-on for Powershell states the app has been deprecated. So which is it? Is this app needed or not?
