Getting Data In

Is an entry in props.conf required to allow an entry in transforms.conf to be effective?

When the following question was asked in this forum:
What is the role of transforms.conf vs. props.conf for field extraction?

The answer was:

The high-level answer is that props.conf says what rules are applied to any event and when they are applied, and transforms.conf actually defines those rules.

but is the entry in props.conf REQUIRED to map to an entry in transforms.conf so that the rule is applied?

thank you

Yes. Props.conf define the entity (host/source/sourcetype) to which rules will be applied and provides a pointer to a transforms.conf entry which actually defines the rule.
