Hello @ektasiwani,

You can use the rest api to return configurations in Splunk. This works well for Splunk defined or Modular input conf files.

Using configs:

| rest  /services/configs/conf-authorize
OR
| rest  /services/configs/conf-<file>

Using properties endpoint:

| rest  /services/properties/authorize
OR
| rest  /services/properties/<conf_file>

Cheers,
