Getting Data In

Federated Search - Metrics index, no data found?


Hello Splunkers!

I am very exited about the new federated search feature starting the Splunk 8.2 version!
I got it to run with a onPrem development machine and a regular index - works as desired and described.

However, if I try the same procedure with a metrics index as a remote data set, my search
|mpreview index=federated:my_metrix_index
do not return any result and there is no error returned.

Is this currently the intended behaviour? I would assume, that the REST endpoint is not yet completely adjusted.

Looking forward to hear fro
