Configure Inputs for the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Office 365

Prerequisites: Before you enable inputs, complete the previous steps in the configuration process:

Configure your inputs using Splunk Web on the Splunk platform instance that you have designated as your configuration server for this add-on.

  1. Go to the Splunk Web home screen.
  2. Click on Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Office 365 in the left navigation banner.
  3. Click on the Input tab.
  4. Click Add Input.
  5. Select the input type you want to create.
    • Management Activity - All audit events visible through the Office 365 Management Activity API
      • Audit.AzureActiveDirectory - the audit logs for Microsoft Azure Active Directory
      • Audit.Exchange - the audit logs for Microsoft Exchange
      • Audit.SharePoint - the audit logs for Microsoft SharePoint
      • Audit.General - the general audit logs for Microsoft Office 365
      • DLP.All - all log information for DLP
    • Service Status - All service status events visible through the Microsoft Office 365 Service Communication API
      • CurrentStatus - the current service status events
      • HistoricalStatus - historical service status events
    • Service Message - All service message events visible through the Office 365 Service Communication API
  6. Fill in the required fields.
  7. Click Add. The Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Office 365 saves your input settings and divides up the data collection tasks included in the input evenly among all the forwarders that you have specified in the Forwarders tab on the Configuration page.
  8. Verify that data is successfully arriving by running one of the following searches on your search head depending on which input type you have defined:

    sourcetype=o365:management:activity

    sourcetype=o365:service:status

    sourcetype=o365:service:message

    sourcetype=splunk:ta:o365:log

    If you do not see any events, check the Troubleshooting tab on your configuration server instance to verify that your accounts, forwarders, and inputs are all configured successfully. See also: Troubleshooting the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Office 365.

Be nice to see the options for configuring the inputs via cli, since many HFW have the gui disabled.
