How to add custom fonts (cyrillic) to use in PDF reports in Splunk 6.3?

Hello!

In Splunk documentation, it is written that fonts can be added to use in PDF reports. Font loading is controlled by parameter:
reportCIDFontList = gb cns jp kor

Also, If you want your PDFs to make use of another truetype, non-Latin font (such as Cyrillic or Greek), have your Splunk Enterprise admin add the Unicode font to $SPLUNK_HOME/share/splunk/fonts. Create the fonts directory if it doesn't already exist.

However, in what format and where do we get these fonts to put in the "fonts" directory?

Best regards,
Vladimir

Truetype font files are font files with “ttf” file extension, so you can try to put .ttf font files under SPLUNK_HOME/share/splunk/fonts folder to get them registered. To get these font files, you can try different sources, for example:

Path Finder

After putting the new fonts, should I make any changes to

reportCIDFontList = <string>

In alert_actions.conf
