Does Splunk have a mechanism to read logs from Cloud Object Storage?

Explorer

Hello,

We have been using a cloud provider to host some of our instances and the logs are being stored in containers using Object Storage. Does Splunk have a mechanism to read logs from object storage ? Maybe using some API which works over SSL?

Any inputs will be appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Can you be more specific? What cloud? What object storage system? The details matter.

If the object storage service you are referring to is AWS S3, then the Splunk App for AWS v4 (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1274/) has an easy to use data input for S3 buckets. Here are the instructions on how to setup a S3 data input for the Splunk App for AWS.
