Splunk upgrade on Heavy Forwarder from v6.4.0 to v7.3.1.1 (add-on version question)

Path Finder

Hello All,


We are upgrading Splunk Heavy Forwarder from  v6.4.0 to v7.3.1.1 and we were evaluating the need to upgrade add-ons installed on the HF to ensure compatibility with v7.3.x.

We have narrowed down the add-ons which require an upgrade on the HF, but are unsure if they need to be upgraded to the same version as HF on SH/IDX also (in Splunkcloud) for the field extraction to happen properly?

Below are the apps: Any guidance is appreciated, thanks.

In general, it's a good idea for all Splunk components to use the same version of a TA/app.
