Splunk add-on for AWS installation

Hi all,

I have a question for installing Splunk add for AWS / Splunk add-on for AWS.

My on-prem deployment is like this:

datasource <-> HF <-> IDX cluster <-> SH cluster

Where do I have to install app/add-on?

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/AWS/6.0.1/Installation/Installon-prem: It says both should be installed on SH and add-on should be on HF.

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/AddOns/released/AWS/Distributeddeployment: It's table says add-on should be only on HF.

Which document is correct? Thanks in advance.

based on your Splunk deployment. Data collection should be always on Heavy forwarder. since the TA is used to collect data from AWS, you should install it on Heavy forwarder. But, most of the TAs will have search time field extractions, event types and tags. Hence it may be required to install on search heads as well.
