Splunk Add-on for GitHub

Configure your GitHub Enterprise server to send data to the Splunk Add-on for GitHub

To let the Splunk Add-on for GitHub collect data from your GitHub Enterprise server, configure your GitHub Enterprise server to forward logs and push it to your Splunk platform installation. For more detailed information, see the GitHub log forwarding documentation.

  1. On the Management Console page, click Monitoring.
  2. Select Enable log forwarding.
  3. For Server address, type the address of the server to which you want to forward logs. You can specify multiple addresses in a comma-separated list.
  4. In the Protocol menu, select the protocol to use to communicate with the log server, we recommend TCP. The protocol will apply to all specified log destinations.
