Getting Data In

Filter & Ingest Data


Hi Experts,

I have specific requirement to split the contents of a file and ingest it as a separate events. In that events, a filter to be applied and ingest the filtered data to Splunk indexer.

I have created a REGEX pattern which split the contents of the file and ingesting the data in to separate events as desired. Now, my issue is with the filtering of ingested data. In each event, I need to filter fro AGGREGATED_EXECUTION and ingest only the event which has that content. I set the configuration as below.

TRANSFORMS-set= send_events


DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = indexQueue


Above settings is made on HF. Still the filtering is not happening as expected. Kindly help in resolving the issue with filtering.

Instead of re-starting splunkd on the search head, try restarting the splunkd service on the Heavy Forwarder, where the changes have been made and then check if the results are effective.


If not, btool can tell if the configuration is really being loaded in the memory or not.

Did you either restart the SHC/SH after making the changes?

Or you can run the following in the search bar to get the same results:

|rest /services/authentication/users splunk_server=local

An upvote would be appreciated and Accept Solution if it helps!
