Getting Data In

One API key to multiple sources

New Member

Can the same API key be used to ingest multiple different http event collector sources?

Hi,

Do you mean HEC token? Then yes you can distribute same HEC token to multiple applications to ingest data in Splunk if request contain index, sourcetype etc. If your request does not contain those information and if you want to store data in different index or if you want to assign different sourcetype for different types of data then I'll suggest to use different HEC tokens.
