Splunk Enterprise Security: How to pull DNS data into DNS activity dashboard?

Hi All ,

I am trying to get DNS data into Splunk Enterprise Security 4.5
we already have Windows Server DNS logs in Splunk Enterprise, can we map the same data into Enterprise Security?
if yes, what is the procedure? is there any Add-on to configure it?

Looked into the Splunk Add-on for Bro IDS but it didn't meet my requirement!

I haven't used this but it does appear to have the CIM mappings you'll need:

I do not have an ES instance in front of me at the moment but DNS activity dashboard should be using specific sourcetype searches to find the corresponding data.

They should be mapped automatically because the built-in searches are looking for a specific set of sourcetypes.

  1. You are using the Windows TA to pull the DNS server logs into Splunk, correct?
  2. How do you view the current DNS logs, via search or the Windows Infrastructure App?
