Hi at all,
I found an issue in iplocation database on Splunk Cloud: if i use iplocation for many IP address (e.g. 147.161.244.186) I find Sao Paulo (Brazil) but using whois I find Amsterdam (NL) that's the correct answer.

It could be a bug or an update problem, has anyone  experienced this issue?

and is there  anyone that knows how to update iplocation database on Splunk Cloud: it shouldn't be possible.

How can I intervene?

Thank you for your support.

Ciao.

Giuseppe
