How do I know the URI and port for an HTTP Event Collector?

I have it already created, but I'm not sure how to get the URI and Port!

Thanks!

Hi @Anmar0293
The the Data Inputs > HTTP Event Collector area, there is a button that says "Global settings". In here it will tell you the port number which defaults to 8088.

So if your instance is called mysplunk, the HEC address will be https://mysplunk:8088/ or you might have configured it with http instead

All the best
