Hi,

Configured the proxy for retrieving threat intelligence in Enterprise Security and its succesfully retrieved those feed.

As the local Splunk server DNS query will be stopped for external Internet name query soon, I am in doubt that the retrival of the threat intelligence will be failed as the Enterprise Security can't have the DNS query results from the proxy server.

Will it need to keep the local Splunk server have the external DNS query in order to have the retrieving threat intelligence succesful?

Hi,

As you are downloading threat feed via proxy, it is not required for Splunk Server to have external DNS access, proxy will resolve those DNS queries and serve the request.
