Splunk Jenkins plug-in 1.7.4: How to Disable sending Console Logs from Jenkins to Splunk

We have configured Splunk plug-in for Jenkins version 1.7.4 on Jenkins side.
We want to send Custom Metadata -> Data source "Queue Information " to index=index_statistics
Iin addition to this data we are getting Console logs to index=jenkins_console.

We cannot find where exactly can we disable sending Jenkins console logs data to Splunk.

Anybody had any experience with that?

@txiao_splunk , thank you for your quick reply!
We didn't realize that we can select "Disabled" as a "Config Item" , which we did per your advice.

The goal was to stop Jenkins data from coming to index=jenkins_console (with numerous source(s) containing "console" key word ), but even after selecting "Disabled" for "Console Log" Data Source we still continued to get data in "jenkins_console" index.

At this point we are not even sure if "Console log" data source corresponds to "jenkins_console" index.

Any advice will be appreciated

index=jenkins_console |stats values(host), values(source)

host is Jenkins hostname configured in the plugin, probably you need disable them if you have multiple instances

@txiao_splunk , thank you for providing the workaround and updating Splunk Jenkins Plugin to version 1.9.3 with disable jdk logger when console_log is disabled (https://plugins.jenkins.io/splunk-devops/)
