Getting Data In

Trying to set up forwarder for Splunk Light - Download Universal Forwarder Credentials link returns 404

Engager

I am trying to set up a universal forwarder (Windows) to send data to our new Splunk Light trial account. I am following the instructions on the following page and am stuck on the part where I am to download the credentials:

"Getting data into Splunk Light cloud service using Windows"

The Download Universal Forwarder Credentials link returns 404. I've tried it with different browsers and it's always not found. Can anyone help me?

We are working on resolving this issue.
In the meantime, as a workaround, can you login to Splunk Light trial, and go to Universal Forwarder link which looks something like this,
https://prd-p-5dnv2v9jjfrp.cloud.splunk.com/en-US/app/search/splunkclouduf?earliest=0&latest=

Change the URL to below, by replacing splunkclouduf from the URL with setupuf:
https://prd-p-5dnv2v9jjfrp.cloud.splunk.com/en-US/app/search/setupuf?earliest=0&latest=

apologies for misleading instructions, I have updated my answer before, and verified that workaround works in my trial environment. Please give it a try.

Saw that one earlier too, but I believe this is unrelated, I'm en-us, thanks though!
