Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Active Directory: Is this add-on compliant with Common Information Model (CIM)?

Splunkbase says Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Active Directory is complaint with CIM VERSIONS 4.0, 3.0 ( https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3207/ ), but I cannot find the documentation like other Splunk built Add-ons about what Data sets from the Common Information Model (CIM) Data Model matches each of the sourcetypes

Does anyone know?

This are the sourcetypes included in the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Active Directory

MSAD:NT6:Health
MSAD:NT6:SiteInfo
MSAD:NT6:Replication
MSAD:NT6:Netlogon
MSAD:SubnetAffinity

I'm looking for sources that can be ingested by Splunk Enterprise Security

Hello,

After verifying with the development team, the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Active Directory is not CIM compliant. Cim compliance has now been removed from the add-on's Splunkbase page to reflect this information.

Is there a replacement for this Add-on?

Hi guarisma - you can see what's CIM compatible by looking at the tags.conf and probably eventtypes.conf files in the TA - usually eventtypes have been tagged with CIM-compatible tags as a sort-of best practice. If something has a tag that matches a CIM tag then that's where you're going to see it map into the CIM.

At first glance, I don't see any tags in the TA, so I don't believe any work has been done to that TA.
