Splunk Cloud Platform

Why am I unable to send data to HTTP Event Collector in Splunk cloud trial version?

Loves-to-Learn Lots

Good evening,

We are unable to send data to the Splunk Cloud trial instance.

To send data to http event collector ,

we referred this document and sent a post request to the URL https://http-inputs-<hostname>.splunkcloud.com:8088/services/collector/event from postman and got "getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND" as error. 

On trying post request to the URL https://<hostname>.splunkcloud.com:8088/services/collector/event , we got "Error: Request timed out". 

Is the documentation wrong? How do I get this working?

@laxam Can you try a post request on port 443 and did you set up the HEC input on the SH, defined it and enabled?
