Getting Data In

Splunk UF Docker edit props.conf file

Path Finder

Hey,

I want to be able to edit this file /opt/splunk/etc/system/default/props.conf and add this data input:
[journald]
KVMODE = json
MAX
TIMESTAMPLOOKAHEAD = 10
NO
BINARYCHECK = 1
SHOULD
LINEMERGE = false
TIMEFORMAT = %s
TIME
PREFIX = \"_REALTIMETIMESTAMP\" : \"
pulldown_type = 1
TZ=UTC

I don't see any way to do it with SPLUNK_CMD
Also didn't find any documentation in https://hub.docker.com/r/splunk/splunk/

Please assist.

Not too familiar with the Docker approach, but in general, you should never, ever edit any config file in etc/system/default/.

Put the additional input configuration into a dedicated app, which you place in etc/apps/.

I also wonder which ones of these settings need to be on the indexer side...

Oh, didn't even spot that, but this kind of props.conf all goes onto the indexer (unless you use a heavy forwarder). I was a bit blinded by your "I want to ... add this data input". Inputs are usually defined in inputs.conf not props.conf.

I'm using Splunk Cloud and when add new source type called journald in the Splunk cloud it's not working unless I'm updating the UF as well with

[journald]
KV_MODE = json
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD = 10
NO_BINARY_CHECK = 1
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
TIME_FORMAT = %s
TIME_PREFIX = \"__REALTIME_TIMESTAMP\" : \"
pulldown_type = 1
TZ=UTC

Is there any option to change it on the Splunk cloud only ?? and it will take effect?
