NOOB - fschange setup not working

Engager

sorry for noob question, i am using splunk for 2 days...
i am pulling my hair out, cant get it to work....

i have setup an index fschange_test

added this to local/inputs.conf

[fschange:/etc]
index = fschange_test
recurse = true
followLinks = false
signedaudit = false
fullEvent = true

splunk restarted

changed a few files, added some in /etc...

so i go to search type

index="fschange_test"

and get 0 matching events...
the same goes if i add or change some files in splunks /etc dir whitch should work by default...

Hi skopy

you will love splunk the more you use it 😉

does your user which runs splunkd have read access to /etc?
what can be found if you search index=_internal source="*splunkd.log*" for /etc?

as you already have found answer.splunk.com; another great source is splunk docs

i managed to get it running and currently running a battle with blacklist excluding folders on recurse, so i think i will have to go harder way; not to include what i want, but exclude what i dont want....

thanks for your time to answer 😃
