Send data via UDP to Splunk Cloud



I am currently sending data to my Splunk Server via UDP. I am looking to migrate to Splunk Cloud, so I got the Splunk Cloud Free Trial. I noticed that in Splunk Cloud there is currently no way to create a UDP listener to accept my data. What is the work around this?

Splunk Cloud supports neither UDP nor TCP inputs.  You'll have to stand up an on-prem heavy forwarder to receive the UDP inputs and forward them to Splunk Cloud.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
