Hi @sanjubaba,

"to integrate Splunk with third party applications" can mean all and nothig, what do you mean?

if you mean integration as to take and correlate logs from third parties, add-ons are the Splunk way to take logs, you can also avoid to use add-ons but it's more difficoult.

if you mean integration as send logs or alerts to third parties, you don't need add-ons.

Ciao.

As Giuseppe wrote, the question (written this way) can mean a lot of things. What I understand from your question is that you want a tool to connect both systems so you can transfer data from them or in between them, right? If you are particularly looking for an external solution, marketplaces are brimming. You just have to know the features you are looking for in the 3rd party tool and test to find out which one works best for your use case. You can connect Splunk with a lot of systems like Cherwell, Ivanti, Dynatrace, BMC, OpsBridge, ServiceNow, and more. Tools like Streamweaver offer connectors for Splunk. What we use is a different tool that is easier to deploy and has a long list of useful Splunk integrations. The team finds it more suitable for work.

It'll depend upon what that third party application is.  Without any information about that third party application, (and what integration you want to have e.g. ingesting data from OR sending data to OR any other integration), it would be extremely difficult to comment on this.
