Splunk Cloud Platform

Why is there Salesforce EventLogFile error?


We can connect successfully with Salesforce TA and grab data from common objects, like Audit Trail.

However, EventLogFile type can't log anything and throw those errors.

We just checked and all permissions are corrected (View Event Log Files / View All Data e API Enabled).

It worked for me. The only downside is that the UI for inputs editing is broken

If I comment the monitor interval inside inputs.conf, it works.

In the Splunk UI is a required field.

sudo cat /opt/splunk/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_salesforce/local/inputs.conf

account = QA
index = mycompany_salesforce_eventlog
interval = 30
#monitoring_interval = Daily
disabled = 0
start_date = 2020-01-01T00:00:00.000z
