Deployment command for App Profile Server

On behalf of one of out customers, I have a concrete qustion regarding the setup of the Splunk for WebSphere App. I reference to the install guide for the app.
On page 23 is shown how to generate an input. Our WebSphere App looks like following: We have an Deployment Manager (DM) on a seperate server and the same is valid for the App Profile. I have found an example to generate an input file for the DM like following:

java -jar CreateInputs.jar -startpath /opt/IBM/WebSphere80ND/AppServer/profiles/ -hostname MyHost -enablenodemetadata -whitelist '.log$|.txt$' -alldmgrprofile

What needs the command to look like for an server, that only includes the App profiles?

We use the following command on both nodes and dmgr hosts. As you see we use WAS own JVM and we do substitution right away to put custom index name. Blacklist section helps us weed out rolled over logs.


if [[ -d "/opt/IBM/BPM751/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/" ]] ; then
    /opt/IBM/BPM751/WebSphere/AppServer/java/bin/java \
    -jar $SPLUNK_ADDON_DIR/bin/CreateInputs.jar \
    -startpath /opt/IBM/BPM751/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/  \
    -hostname $(hostname) \
    -enablenodemetadata -whitelist '\.log$|\.txt$|\.out$' \
    -blacklist 'native_stderr|trace|(SystemErr_|SystemOut_|native_stdout_)[0-9][0-9]\.[0-9][0-9]\.[0-9][0-9]_[0-9][0-9]\.[0-9][0-9]\.[0-9][0-9]\.log$' \
    -alldmgrprofile \
    -print | sed -e 's/index \= websphere/index = '$INDEX_NAME'/g' > $OUT_FILE
