Getting Data In

Troubleshooting: SplunkHecExporter in otelcol-contrib : How to change the source filed to take the file name


Configured the otelcol-contrib  agent.config.yaml file to send the data to splunk cloud. i'm getting the data but the source is coming as HEC Token name. 

receivers is configured to read different files. 

include: [ /var/log/messages, /var/log/auth, /var/log/mesg$$, /var/log/cron$$, /var/log/acpid$$ ]
start_at: beginning
include_file_path: true
include_file_name: false
in the exporters didn't mention the source.
option 1 : By default Splunk is taking the HEC token name as it's value.
option 2 : I can give the value as log file path but for multiple files, it's not working . 
in splunk cloud, source is - HEC Token value 
                     log_file_path field is giving the log file path.  Is there a way i can configure the source to take the log file path.
