Is there a way to automatically retrieve Entity information like OS, IP address, OS version?


Hi Splunkers !

Is it a way to automatically retrieve Entity information like OS, IP address, OS version, ... and add it as Dimensions ? All my Entities are retrieved via Splunk Addon For *nix and via Splunk Addon For Windows.

All my Entities are correctly imported to ITEW but no one has other information like his IP or his OS in Entities Info Fields. I have about 1200 entities so, I'm looking for a way to add those information to all my entities automatically. All needed data are correctly indexed. My save search ITSI Import Objects - TA *Nix and ITSI Import Objects - Perfmon get those info correctly.

Can somebody help me with these issue ?

Happy Splunking !

To add to joys answer. If you have that meta data of the entities available in Splunk and or in a CSV. You can use the import entities with search or CSV method to append additional info fields (meta data) to the entities. 

See doc at: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/ITSI/4.15.0/Entity/ImportSearch

You can ingest CMDB data that contains FQDN, IP, OS, etc.
