Depending on your environment, your preferences, and the requirements of the add-on, you may need to install the add-on in multiple places.
|Splunk instance type||Supported||Required||Comments|
|Search Heads||Yes||Yes||Install this add-on to all search heads where Microsoft Office 365 knowledge management is required. Select one node, either a search head or a heavy forwarder, to serve as the configuration server for this add-on, and disable visibility of the add-on in all other locations.|
|Indexers||Yes||Conditional||Not required if you use heavy forwarders to collect Microsoft Office 365 data. Required if you configure data collection directly from your search head or use light forwarders.|
|Heavy Forwarders||Yes||No||If installed on heavy forwarders, does not need to be installed on indexers. Select one node, either a search head or a heavy forwarder, to serve as the configuration server for this add-on, and disable visibility of the add-on in all other locations.|
|Universal Forwarders||No||No||Universal forwarders are not supported for data collection, because the modular inputs require Python and the Splunk REST handler.|
|Light Forwarders||Yes||No||You must also install this add-on on your indexers if you use a light forwarder rather than a heavy forwarder to collect Microsoft Office 365 data.|
