Send JSON file/txt file using HEC - stuck on curl command

New Member


Trying to send a JSON file/text file through HEC to splunk. Getting stuck while adding

"-d @data.json" in curl command. I have created a new token, enabled it, sent sample data like Hello world, and works. But, not sure how to send txt/json file using curl

Hi @spharisha

I think you are trying to send the whole file using curl command,

& i feel like you should consider it by configuring inputs and send it to HEC index on indexer.
