Out-of-the-box source types

Out-of-the-box source types

This topic provides a list of the add-ons included in the Splunk App for Enterprise Security. The tables below map the add-on to the data source and the source type used, along with a brief description.

The source type assignment is critical to the proper functioning of Enterprise Security. A source type determines how an incoming data source is mapped into the Common Information Model. The CIM fields are combined with other search time objects from the add-ons to provide the knowledge needed when searching the source. And the searches use that knowledge to return results which are displayed in the Dashboards and Views that comprise Enterprise Security. See "Source vs sourcetype" for more information on default fields in Splunk Enterprise.
