Splunk noob here and I'm trying to import song logging data that I want to correlate with data from a SQL table so that I can include things in reports not in logs like people's names. I can import the logs easy enough, but I'm not sure what's the best way to go about getting the SQL data in. I know that I can import via a CSV and that there's also some SQL import scripts, but what would be the best way to import this?
The steps the use the web interface should work in Splunk Cloud. You cannot edit .conf files. You can ask tech support to edit them for you, but that shouldn't be necessary if the web interface worked. Of course, this assumes your SQL database can be reached from the cloud.
