Getting Data In

Can forwarded data be customized?

Being inspired by this sample I've developed my own modular input which loads data, parse it and after imports it to my Splunk Heavy Forwarder instance.
Now I plan to forward data from HF to a splunk instance (and maybe a 3rd party splunk instance), but I'd like to process it before forwarding it - there is any way to preprocess forwarded data?

I consider the parsing your modular input does to be "preprocessing". What additional processing do you want to do?

my target is add alert upon forwarded messages.
Kind of - if forwarded event's field type is 5, the forwarding module should call an REST API and additionally forward the event to a second receiver....
