I have logs that are stored in Micrsoft Blob Storage which are compressed as .xz files, but they are not named with that extension, they are in the format: kuberenetes-<datetime> ( example: kubernetes-202101310701). What I'm trying to do is ingest these logs into Splunk using the Microsoft Cloud Services app. Because these files are compressed, I believe I need to run the unarchive_cmd against it using props.conf, but I'm not sure this is even supported with this app. I've searched high and low and have not come across any information that supports it. As a side note, these files are kuberenetes logs coming from SAP CC2V so I do not have any control of how they are written to blob storage, I can only access them after the fact. When I enable the application the data starts to stream in but it's all gibberish because the files are compressed.
I know the props.conf is not correct or does not need that many stanzas, but I tried adding all of these in an attempt to get it to work as I'm not even sure it's using the props.conf file. As a side note, if I decompress the file in Azure Blob and then ingest it, it works perfectly. So the question is, can I use the 'invalid_cause' and 'unarchive_cmd' in the props for Microsoft Cloud Services app? If this doesn't work I need to come up with another solution, and I'm thinking I can just copy the files locally and then run it through a standard file monitor process and attempt to run the unarchive command there.
