Monitoring Splunk

How to find first connect time/version of a universal Forwarder?



I am looking for a way to track when a new Splunk Forwarder connects along with the version. Was hoping to find some relevant field on Deployment Server (/services/deployment/server/clients) but I could only see lastPhoneHomeTime, nothing for when it first connected to the system.

Is it possible to get this information, either from Deployment Server or Forwarder's internal logs?

Even if (I suppose the info must be there since the DS shows it - it searches the _internal index) you do that, remember that you're limited by _internal index's retention period.
