Getting Data In

Sending Data to Splunk Cloud from Heavy Forwarder



I have an app which collects logs and I have configured it to send data to a local enterprise instance of splunk and splunk cloud, I can see the data in the local enterprise instance but not in the cloud instances

I do see the following which shows connection has been established
