Do not know what Data Manager is for, appears to be something that we didn't have before, but now getting this alert from Splunk.

 

Hello Splunk Admin,
There is 1 app that has Python issues on sh-i-07250f7cd46a5ce76.cybergrants.splunkcloud.com stack that needs your attention. Please check the Upgrade Readiness App for more details on addressing outstanding items.

This app is not compatible?  What needs to be done to make this stop alerting.

Hello

Data Manager is an application that is now available with the Victoria experience  - This app provides a simplified and an automated way to onboard cloud data. More details can be found in the documentation at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/DM/1.3.1

As for the alert you are receiving, it is a false alert from the Upgrade Readiness App. The Data Manager app is completely py3 compatible and can be safely used. A new version of Upgrade Readiness App will stop these false alerts from occurring; until then you can dismiss the Data Manager App completely in the Upgrade Readiness App. We apologize for the false alerts.

Any plans on adding a generic REST input add-on for the Data Manager?  I know lots of people that are looking for this functionality and get frustrated, since there is nothing out there.

Following up on my previous post - I'd also like to see the ability for this REST call to create lookups.  The majority of my REST calls end up getting indexed, but that's only because there is no current method to make the external REST call and then simply format it and send it to a csv lookup file.

Hello!

Just to clarify understand your question here, are you looking for either

  • a way to call a REST endpoint (send) on Splunk to ingest logs, like HEC
  • Splunk itself to call a configurable REST endpoint that returns data for Splunk to ingest

Hi,

I'm looking for a way for Splunk to call an external REST endpoint (a vendor, for example) and then index that data.  For on-prem, that was typically done with add-ons, but for Cloud, it's never been allowed.  I'd like to see that functionality added, and it looks like the Data Manager would be a good place for it.
