I've looked at the following pages in Splunk Answers already, but after following everything they've done in there, I still cannot get my situation to work. 😞 But I looked through these:
So I basically have the same problem as the first link, but I can't get it to work, even with the techniques used in that issue. I want to filter out certain Windows Events by EventCode, but the settings don't seem to take. Here's my settings:
-- PROPS.CONF --
TRANSFORMS-wineventlog-security = wineventlog_security_setNull
-- TRANSFORMS.CONF --
REGEX = (?msi)^EventCode=4674\D
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue
I'm putting this on the Forwarder machine, as this occurs on the Forwarders, correct? Or should this be on the Indexers?
props.conf and transforms.conf are only handled on heavy forwarder and not on light or universal forwarder.
If your forwarder is s heavy, you could put props.conf and transforms.conf there.
If your forwarder is a light or universal forwarder, you must put your props.conf and transforms.conf on the indexer.
hope this helps

Ahhhh, yes. ^_^ Thanks. Moving it to the indexer made it work exactly as I wanted. Thanks so much!!
