HTTP event collector is using push mechanism from the application side. So it should be configured in the source application/program from where the data is coming

Thanks for your reply @renjith_nair 

So may be on the source server from where the data is coming from the curl command with the specific token information would be there right. So may be its using a cron to run the curl to run weekly ?

Is my understanding correct ?

Also on another note can we have the HEC configured on HF instead of Searchhead ?

Yes that is correct.

HEC is "instant" so it will be the source server sending the data weekly.  Your idea about a cron/curl job being scheduled sounds like you are on the right track!

Yes you can run HEC on a HF rather than the SearchHead - I would suggest that is a better solution.

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!
