Getting Data In

Why am I unable to download the Universal Forwarder splunkcloud.spl credentials file for Splunk Light Cloud?

New Member

We have a Splunk Light Cloud instance. When trying to set up the Universal Forwarder, I can't seem to download the splunkcloud.spl credentials file. Here's the error that I see:

<response>
<messages>
<msg type="WARN">

I can't tell from your output what the issue is. Try following the step-by-step set up instructions in the Splunk Light documentation, as the steps are very helpful:

I'm following the step-by-step instructions. When I click to "Download Universal Forwarder Credentials", the download never works, but comes with the above mentioned xml page.

I'm having the exact problem using Splunk Cloud (not the light version) 6.5.
