How do I get AD data type into Splunk UBA?

We have all of our Windows Events from our domain controllers going into UBA with a CIM Compliant Splunk Direct data source however it is saying we are missing AD data. What is the requirement for AD data in UBA? Do we a need a particular app feeding into it?

I recreated the data source with just index=windows instead of the CIM compliant tags.

Anyone know why tags would not work?

Does domain actually make a difference. the documentation is horrible, changes from 4.30 to 4.32 have not been updated in the documentation and in general just near useless, I am finding contact PS as the default answer.

Did you discuss with your PS contact? when you say missing AD data, do you mean skipped events in UBA? where does it say missing AD data?

When looking at the "Data Availability" screen it shows AD listed under no data available.

Ok. I am on UBA 4.3.x . System -> Data availability (Data views) should list 'AD' under 'data available' and link it to your 'Data sources' , models and anomaly types. What do you see in Manage -> Data Sources? Are you seeing your AD data with appropriate 'Name' and status /format as processing ? UBA can read the windows event logs natively without splunk direct.
