I've configured a Splunk Universal Forwarder to receive logs that are sent by other syslog in CEF format by our security devices, but when the Indexer receive the data, I saw in the GUI that data are not well parsed...

Splunk recognizes some field that are preceded by the = (equal sign).
However, if data that are after the = sign contains a space, data is not well parsed.
c6a2Label=Source IPv6 Address
is recognized as
IPv6 Address is not recognized for that field.
And this part is totally ignored by Splunk

How to configure Splunk to recognized that format?
Thanks in advance
If you can't adjust the log entries at the source, you'll have to create field extractions for this sourcetype.
Thx for the answer. But I don't understand where to install and how to configure the TA?
