Splunk on GCP: what's the benefit of running dataflow template when pubsub natively supports HTTPS push

New Member

So I'm new to the splunk on GCP still learning, one thing I'm trying to wrap my head around is this:

GCP pubsub provides native support for HTTP push - it's pretty straightforward. Now Splunk GCP has the dataflow template which seems to be a data pipeline that just re-format the logs and push it through the Splunk HEC which is HTTP endpoint.

From architectural pov,  introducing  dataflow template into the GDI is an extra layer when the log export seemingly can be done by pubsub http push, so what is the specific value add from dataflow template?
