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

Engager

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
