Will the sourcetype be created automatically


When we install an App (any app) in Splunk, will the sourcetype be created automatically?

Hi @pratapa,

sourcetypes are defined in props.conf, so some apps have predefined sourcetype, but it isn't a rule it depends on the app.

And anyway, it's possible to modify the predefined sourcetypes.
