How to exclude splunk cloud server logs from my search

New Member

I have a new splunk instance and I am seeing log entries for the splunk cloud host logs with host names:


Is it possible to remove these entries from default searches in the UI?

You can build a macro if this is something which is repetitive and you want to perform for every search.
Refer below doc to build a macro.

Build a macro with the following query

index=<your_index> NOT host IN (dx*,idx-i-,sh-i-,c0m1-i-*)

let me know if this helps!

You can using NOT operator and specify the list of host name (use can use wildcard) you want to exclude

query will be like ,

index=* NOT (host="dx*" OR host="idx-i-" OR host="sh-i-" OR host="c0m1-i-*")
