Dynatrace Application Performance Management: Where to locate the source types?

The documentation ( https://community.dynatrace.com/community/display/DL/Splunk+Application ) says :

"By simply enabling the HTTP export of any Business Transactions you can now use them in splunk. The Splunk Application distinguishes between 4 source types
•pp - PurePath
•pa - PageAction (Client Action)
•visit - Visit
•alert - Alert"

I do see an index named "dynatrace" but not the source types. Does anyone know where they come from or their definitions?

Thanks

The source types are configured by the app in the inputs.conf file. The instance of Flume managed by the app takes the protobuf data streamed from Dynatrace and writes it to specific locations on the filesystem. These locations are then ingested by Splunk and bucketed in the appropriate source type:

[monitor://$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/compuwareapm/log/bt-export/pa]
disabled = false
index=dynatrace
time_before_close=60
sourcetype = pa

[monitor://$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/compuwareapm/log/bt-export/pp]
disabled = false
index=dynatrace
time_before_close=60
sourcetype = pp

[monitor://$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/compuwareapm/log/bt-export/visit]
disabled = false
index=dynatrace
time_before_close=60
sourcetype = visit

[monitor://$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/compuwareapm/log/alerts]
disabled = false
followTail = 0
sourcetype = alert
index = dynatrace
