the best way to do this is the Splunk HTTP Event Collector. It's a HTTP(S) API, that you can send your events to.
There is a lot to be considered for this, but the documents explain it pretty well. Check this:

Set up and use HTTP Event Collector in Splunk Web

Hope that helps - if it does I'd be happy if you would upvote/accept this answer, so others could profit from it. 🙂
