I assume you have the add-on installed on HF / Indexer and SH and you want to know where to configure the inputs and ensure not to make duplicate data by configuring on multiple instances.

If the above is the case, then below is the answer to it. If not, please provide more information on your requirement.

Add-ons that contain inputs belong on forwarders, and in some select cases also on search heads. Inputs that contain dynamic lookups need to be installed on search heads because they feed results back into the input directly from the search. Consult the documentation of the add-on for special instructions.

Please have somebody else review what you are trying to say and expand your question for more clarity. I have no idea what you mean here.
