How can a send a simple test event to my new index to test that it is functioning properly?

Champion

I have spun up a new index in Production and want to quickly test that it is properly configured. I'd like to confirm this before my source starts sending data to it. What are some ways I could test that the index is properly configured and able to accept data?

Ideally I would like to test it without having to restart any of my servers.

Use summaryindex to inject some events into your new index by running the following search -- modify for your use case:

index=internal | head 10 | summaryindex spool=t uselb=t addtime=t index="mynew_index" name=“test inject”
