Is it possible to create a custom API token for the HTTP Event Collector?
I need to use a token from the other system in order for the integration to work and I want to know if I can hard code my http input to use that token. The token that I would be is a different format from the format that Splunk randomly generates.
@mholden37: I understand that the other system generates a token but it sounds to me like the token is meant for a different purpose. What has led you to believe the token is the one Splunk needs for HEC? Please provide specific links to the related token documentation from that other system (the one sending data to Splunk).
Yes our environment is self-managed in AWS.
We need to hard code a token from another system because they generate a token that needs to be passed. We have already tried and have not gotten any data in.
