Splunk Audit Logs

The fields in the Splunk Audit Logs data model describe audit information for systems producing event logs.

Note: A dataset is a component of a data model. In versions of the Splunk platform prior to version 6.5.0, these were referred to as data model objects.

Tags used with the Audit event datasets

The following tags act as constraints to identify your events as being relevant to the Modular_Actions dataset in this data model. For more information, see How to use these reference tables.

Although it is not part of the data model shipped in the CIM add-on, the common information model expects the tag modaction_result for events produced by custom alert actions.

Dataset name Tag name
Modular_Actions modaction

Fields for the event dataset and the search datasets

The following table lists the extracted and calculated fields for the event dataset and search datasets in the model. The table does not include any inherited fields. For more information, see How to use these reference tables.

Dataset name Field name Data type Description Expected values

View_Activity view string The name of the view.
Datamodel_Acceleration access_count number The number of times the data model summary has been accessed since it was created.
Datamodel_Acceleration access_time time The timestamp of the most recent access of the data model summary.
Datamodel_Acceleration app string The application context in which the data model summary was accessed.
Datamodel_Acceleration buckets number The number of index buckets spanned by the data model acceleration summary.

Datamodel_Acceleration last_sid string The search id of the last acceleration attempt.
Datamodel_Acceleration latest time The most recent acceleration timestamp of the data model.
Datamodel_Acceleration mod_time time The timestamp of the most recent modification to the data model acceleration.
Datamodel_Acceleration retention number The length of time that data model accelerations are retained, in seconds.
Datamodel_Acceleration size number The amount of storage space the data model's acceleration summary takes up, in bytes.
Datamodel_Acceleration summary_id string The unique id of the data model acceleration summary.
Search_Activity host string The host on which the search occurred.
Search_Activity info string The action of the search (granted, completed, cancelled, failed).
Search_Activity search string The search string.

Web_Service_Errors host string The host on which the web service error occurred.
Web_Service_Errors source string The source where the web service error occurred.
Web_Service_Errors sourcetype string The source type associated with the web service error.
Web_Service_Errors event_id string The unique event_id for the web service error event.
Modular_Actions action_mode string Specifies whether the action was executed as an ad hoc action or from a saved search, based on whether a search_name exists. saved, adhoc

Modular_Actions orig_rid string The rid value of a source action result, automatically added to an event if it is the product of a previously executed action.
Modular_Actions orig_sid string The original sid value of a source action, automatically added to an event if it is the product of a previously executed action.
Modular_Actions rid string The id associated with the result of a specific sid. By default, this is the row number of the search, starting with 0.
Modular_Actions search_name string The name of the correlation search that triggered the action. Blank for ad hoc actions.
Modular_Actions action_name string The name of the action.
Modular_Actions signature string The logging string associated with alert action introspection events.
