Greetings and thanks for the looking at this question. I have a Splunk server in an air-gapped environment and I'm trying to get threat intelligence data from an external, Internet facing client to an internal URL server and then have Splunk Enterprise Security (ES) perform a URL download of the intelligence file. The external client downloads the feed and then pushes the feed to the URL server (I can push XML, JSON, CSV files).
I am able to get the intelligence file to the URL server from the external client and I set up a Threat Intelligence stanza within Data inputs » Threat Intelligence Downloads to download the file via URL. I am also able to verify that the intelligence file is successfully downloaded; here are the logs for the download:
Threat Intelligence Logs for URL download:

Then after the file is downloaded, I am getting the following error:
4/24/17 12:54:41.689 AM 2017-04-23 23:54:41,689 ERROR pid=40824 tid=MainThread file=threat_intelligence_manager.py:process_files:513 | status="Exception when processing file." filename="custom_ioc.csv" Traceback (most recent call last): File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/DA-ESS-ThreatIntelligence/bin/threat_intelligence_manager.py", line 511, in process_files self.process_file(fullpath, last_run) File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/DA-ESS-ThreatIntelligence/bin/threat_intelligence_manager.py", line 252, in process_file self.process(filename, parser, typ, last_run) File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/DA-ESS-ThreatIntelligence/bin/threat_intelligence_manager.py", line 386, in process for metadata, intel in parser.parse(self._kvstore_limits): File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/DA-ESS-ThreatIntelligence/bin/parsers/csv_parser.py", line 402, in parse parser = CSVParserConfiguration(self.filename, self._stanza, self._collection_spec) File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/DA-ESS-ThreatIntelligence/bin/parsers/csv_parser.py", line 95, in __init__ raise ValueError('Parser does not extract a field that can be mapped to a threat intelligence collection.') ValueError: Parser does not extract a field that can be mapped to a threat intelligence collection.
So it appears I have a parsing error, but I am not sure where to look next for that. I know I'm missing something, but am not sure what. Any assistance that can be given to point me in the right direction would be appreciated. Thank you.
Hi there, I realize I'm about a year late to the party, but in case this is still an issue, or if someone else comes to this from googling the parsing error as i did i wanted to still comment.
The ES parser cannot handle white-space, so if there's any white-space in the file you'll get this error.
I opened my file in vim, after trying to escape all the things, quote the descriptions, etc, and what finally got it to import was running
:%s/\ //gafter replacing my spaces in the description with underscores.
