Hello,

In one of the windows machine logs (path: C:\servicedesk\logs) sending via the universal forwarder to Splunk. So I created inputs.conf and below are the monitor paths, so now am getting logs from sourcetype=%sit% but no logs are coming from sourcetype=automation. Why logs are not coming under sourcetype=automation.

[monitor://C:\servicedesk\logs]
disabled = 0
index = main
sourcetype = %sit%

[monitor://C:\servicedesk\logs]
disabled = 0
index = main
sourcetype = automation

Hi  @phanichintha ,

You definifed the same path in 2 different stanzas.
What is the difference in the events/logs between sourcetypes "%sti%" and "automation"?
