I am new to splunk. We are using splunkcloud and version 8.2.
We are exploring how to ingest gitlab audit logs in splunk.
I checked gitlab project audit add on is not available in splunkcloud. I have tested HEC endpoints. For me my HEC working from curl https request.
But I am clueless how can I ingest gitlab logs to splunk and keep this process realtime and automated.
Thanks in advance.
Splunk Cloud uses forwarders and IDM. IDMs are not available for all stacks. However, all Splunk Cloud customers can use forwarders to get data from their on-prem servers to Splunk Cloud.
To get data from another cloud service, you can use an IDM (if available) or an input on your Cloud search head (if on the Victoria experience) or a on-prem heavy forwarder. Using the IDM requires asking Splunk Support to install an appropriate app for you. The other solutions are self-service.
@aman35 you could poll the data using REST API by building a custom-addon using splunk add-on builder or if these logs are writing to a file, you could monitor/read it by installing a splunk agent .
Coming to splunk cloud, splunk cloud SH provides universal forwarder crdentials package..
If you are using UF approach, you need to download these credentials and place it on the splunk UF @/opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps location and create a gitlab app with inputs.conf and deploy it to the same location and perform a splunk restart.
