Getting Data In

How to pull Sharepoint document library meta data into Splunk?

I want to create a Splunk app that uses document meta data from a document library to create reports based on their meta data tags. An example would be, these 6 documents have a meta data tag that correlates to an item. I want to be able to say, this item needs 10 documents, show that it is only 60% complete. What would be the best way to do this?

We figured it out. We are going to use a REST API call to pull the metadata from the list and then use another REST call to pull user data to correlate the sharepoint IDs with user IDs. From there we can either dump it straight into splunk or format it, either way will work.

tesorrells,

Do you need put the metadata of Sharepoint's that are generated in some file? Or you want to integrate the database of Sharepoint with Splunk?

I have a sharepoint that contains a document repository. Each document contains metadata such as who created it, which item it belongs to, etc. I want to use splunk to track how many documents a person creates/approves/etc.
