Splunk Cloud

HTTP Event Collector: Unable to send data to the REST endpoint (Using Splunk Cloud Trial)

New Member

Hi,

I am trying out Splunk Cloud for an integration with a third-party application using the HTTP Event Collector.

I have created the Token and made the required configurations. But I am unable to send any data to the HEC. I'm using POST to send data, to this endpoint:

https://input-prd-p-<redacted>.splunkcloud.com:8088/services/collector

I have noticed there is no Global Setting option available in the trial version. Could that be a reason?

Any information regarding is will be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Have you checked this directly with something like CURL to check the connection and token?

curl -k "https://<yourHECAddress>.splunkcloud.com/services/collector/raw" \
-H "X-Splunk-Request-Channel: FE0ECFAD-13D5-401B-847D-77833BD77131"   -H "Authorization: Splunk <YOUR_TOKEN_HERE>" \
    -d '{"event": "Welcome to SplunkCloud", "sourcetype":"test"}'

Remove the  X-Splunk-Request-Channel if you arent using Acknowledgments.

Does this give any errors?
