Getting Data In

how to list metadata from dbconnect inputs?

Hello,

I have to survey our client's dbx inputs, with their metadata (index, sourcetype) but the command:

| rest splunk_server=local /servicesNS/nobody/splunk_app_db_connect/configs/inputs

is not giving me the inputs at all. Can you please help me to make the query? I need the input name, with the respective connection and metadata, for all inputs.

Thanks!

Hello @3DGjos 

Try the following:

For listing out all inputs on dbconnect v3:

 

| rest splunk_server=local /servicesNS/nobody/splunk_app_db_connect/configs/conf-db_inputs/

 

 

For listing out all connections on dbconnect v3:

 

| rest splunk_server=local /servicesNS/nobody/splunk_app_db_connect/configs/conf-db_connections/

 

 

For listing out all identities on dbconnect v3:

 

| rest splunk_server=local /servicesNS/nobody/splunk_app_db_connect/configs/conf-identities/

When DBX is installed also on SH layer there are monitoring part which is showing  status information of whole environment (including inputs on HFs when all nodes sent internal logs to the IDX layer).
