How do I add data into Splunk when logged in as an administrator?

New Member

When i am adding data on Splunk Enterprise, I see:

You do not have the capability to add data. Please contact your administrator. 

But I am logged in as an administrator user.

have you looked through this doc to get data into Splunk? There are multiple ways. Are you doing this through the GUI or through .conf files?

Hi,

A simple way for a first contact:

For other options, you can try to do this:

You must have indexing disabled on that server (maybe a forwarder)? Either re-enable indexing on that instance, or try to create the data input on a Splunk instance that has indexing enabled.
