Note: This answer applies to Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud.

It's a best practice to start your Splunk learning by reading the Splunk Enterprise Overview manual in Splunk Docs. Then, you'll be well positioned to attend the Splunk Weekly Web Demo. This video provides a 30-minute overview and demo about how Splunk Enterprise turns machine data into operational intelligence. It briefly defines machine data and describes how businesses use Splunk to support IT operations, application delivery, security, compliance, business analytics, IoT, and Industrial data.

Things to know

The Splunk Community portal and Support and Services contain dashboards that link to sites with community resources, training, and Splunk events. As we move along this journey, you'll find the following resources useful time and time again:

  • Splunk Quick Reference Guide: A great item to print and keep on your desk to reference when you need answers. It provides an at-a-glance view of Splunk concepts, features, components, and search processing language.
  • splunk>docs: Also known as docs.splunk.com, a landing page of technical documentation for Splunk's core products, premium solutions, apps and add-ons, developer tools, and more. Everything you need to Get Started, Search and report, Administer, Deploy, and Develop Splunk Enterprise is here
  • Splexicon: Splunk’s unique Splunk terminology and includes links to related information in the documentation.
  • Splunk education: Access to courses, learning and certification paths. Videos and some courses are free!

Things to do

  • Create your splunk.com account. Go to Splunk.com and click the Splunk Account icon in the upper right corner to create a Splunk.com account. To create the account, click Sign Up and complete the registration information. After you register, use your Splunk account to access everything available on the Support and Services and Splunk Community portal dashboards.
  • Log into your Splunk Cloud instance. Review your Onboarding email sent from Splunk Cloud, log in using the credentials supplied, and change you password.
  • Watch the Splunk Cloud Tutorial. Fast forward to 1:01 because the first 60 seconds pertain to setting up a Splunk Cloud Trial.
