Upgrade the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services

The following migration guide is supported for upgrading from version 3.0.0 to version 4.0.0 or later. Upgrading from any version older than 3.0.0 requires a fresh installation of version 3.0.0.

A best practice for upgrading the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services is to remove your older version before re-installing version 3.0.0 of the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services.

  1. Disable all your inputs before you upgrade the add-on. Otherwise you may see errors in the log files which may results data loss against your already configured inputs.
  2. Install the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services version 3.1.0 and up from the Splunk Web UI (make sure Upgrade App checkbox is selected).
  3. Restart the Splunk platform.
  4. Navigate to the input page of the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Service. Alerts will appear, indicating incomplete account authorization.
  5. Edit each required input by clicking the click here link to navigate to the account configuration page or by directly navigating to the account configuration page.
  6. Complete the authorization of your account by adding your account secret key/account token.
  7. Repeat above steps for all inputs which have alert sign against them.
  8. Enable each desired input to start data collection.

In previous versions, settings including proxy, logging, and performance were stored in splunk_ta_o365_client_setting.conf and splunk_ta_o365_server_setting.conf. In version 3.0.0 and above of the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services, all setting and performance tuning configurations are in splunk_ta_mscs_setting.conf. The default log level is INFO.

Versions 3.0.0 and above of the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services removes the Microsoft Office 365 module. See the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft 0ffice 365.
