Getting Data In

Why does metadata command returns only one sourcetype?

We've got over 50 sourcetypes, however, when I run the command below, I only see syslog under the sourcetype column.

| metadata type=sourcetypes | sort - totalCount

Does anyone have an explanation?

It's only looking at your default index(es). Try | metadata type=sourcetypes idnex=* | sort - totalCount.
