Configure Universal forwarder to monitor a file and send to splunk cloud via HEC.
By using curl, I'm able to hit the splunk cloud and I'm able to see the result but not sure how to configure Universal forwarder.

See https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Forwarder/9.1.2/Forwarder/Configureforwardingwithoutputs.conf#... for the settings to use to send HEC from a UF.

Please elaborate on "it is not working".  What results are expecting and what results do you get?  Are you seeing anything at all from the UF in Splunk Cloud or is it just the monitored file that you don't find?  How are you checking for the data?  Have you looked at splunkd.log on the UF for clues?

I have edited your last reply to remove information anyone could have used to send random data to your Splunk Cloud instance.
