I installed Splunk Universal Forwarder on a Windows Machine, then I tried to collect
Infomations from my pc, the answer that I had was : "WAITING FOR DATA",
and no data appears
do you put the data inside a specific index instead of default index ? if yes custom indexes are not searched by default then you need to add index=myindex in your search.
Or add it as searched by default in Manager » Access controls » Roles » admin » "Indexes searched by default" section
Manager » Access controls » Roles » admin » "Indexes searched by default"
