How to view Forwarding & Receiving link in my Splunk Cloud account?

We have a Splunk cloud account for my organization. But I don’t see Forwarding & Receiving link in Settings menu.
Is this license issue or I need to enable some feature for my cloud account.

This is showstopper for us. Please help.

Search heads in Splunk Cloud do not support Forwarding & Receiving. That's done by indexers, to which you do not have direct access.

Receiving is already enabled. Just download the Universal Forwarder app from your SH and install it on your forwarders.
To add forwarding you will need to open a Support ticket.
