Hi,

Sorry if my question is repeated.

I have an index with sourcetype as 'firewall' and now I want to add one more sourcetype to the existing index called 'security'.

How do I achieve that? Please help.

There is no index level configuration required for a new sourcetype. Just configure your sourcetype in props.conf on Heavy forwarder/Indexers and configure your data inputs to use the existing index and new sourcetype.
