Why does my sample data not show up in search after using the "Add Data" function?

Motivator

Hi,

I have the below data that I'm trying to import into Splunk. Right now I'm working with a sample file only 10 entries long. Below is a snippet. I'm using the "Add Data" function and using the default source type and putting the data into a brand new index and when I go to search, there are 0 results. Thoughts?

@dbcase some things to check:

1.) does the index exist at the indexer or instance you've ingested the sample data to? If not, create it in indexes.conf

2.) does your search include the index name in the search query (ie: index=new_index ....) ? If not, include that in your search as the new index is likely not in the list of indexes searched by default (if you do not include the index name in your search query)

3.) does the role your user belong to have access to search this index? Check via >Settings>Access controls » Roles »

Indexes
Indexes searched by default

4.) do you see results if you search just that index ? Perhaps the source value needs to be adjusted (ie: source=*sourcelog.log*) to match your source file

2. yes, and the date range is all time

3. yes, I'm admin

is this a standalone instance or distributed deployment? Can you paste the search you are using

It is a Splunk Cloud instance.

The search string is pretty simple (see below). I've tried it with and without the source type and quotes, no luck

index="dancalderwood" sourcetype=dan2

try index=* "0x00840850" and see if anything comes up. That would indicate if the events got rerouted somewhere else, and would show you where.

Hi Dal Jeanis,

Thats a great idea! It "worked" by showing me that the data is simply not there even though Splunk indicates that it was imported. Something is amiss somewhere but I dunno where.

@dbcase - did you ever find your missing events?
