We understand that your initial experience with getting data into Splunk Observability Cloud is crucial as it sets you up for success within the product.

We’re excited to share that we’ve improved the OpenTelemetry Collector data setup experience in Splunk Observability Cloud. Now you can follow instructions for installing the Collector on all supported platforms (Linux, Windows, Kubernetes, Amazon ECS Fargate, and Amazon ECS EC2) with a single wizard providing a streamlined, intuitive onboarding experience.

We’re also happy to announce a few other important enhancements:

  • Installation instructions for deployment tools such as Ansible, Puppet, Chef, and Salt are provided in the Getting Started steps.
  • Previously, you would need to switch context across wizards and perform multiple steps to instrument your custom services. With Splunk OpenTelemetry Zero Configuration Auto Instrumentation, the Collector can automatically instrument your back-end applications to capture and report distributed traces to Splunk APM in minutes. Simply opt-in as part of this Collector installation wizard, and that’s it!

We hope these improvements make your getting started experience easier and smooth!
