Release notes for the Splunk Common Information Model Add-on
Version 4.13.0 of the Splunk Common Information Model Add-on was released on April 2, 2019.
Version 4.13.x of the Splunk Common Information Model Add-on includes the following new features.
acceleration.manual_rebuildsparameters are enabled by default in
datamodels.conf. This disables automatic rebuilds for persistently accelerated data models. If you need to rebuild a datamodel for a model stanza that specifies
manual_rebuilds=trueyou should do so manually. See Manual Data Model Management in the Splunk Enterprise Knowledge Manager Manual.
process_guidfield now exists in all objects in the Endpoint Data Model. This is a globally unique identifier of the process assigned by the vendor product. See Endpoint.
splunk_realmfields now exist in the All_Ticket_Management dataset in the Ticket Management Data Model. When a Splunk solution generates a notable event, or set of notable events, these fields are a standard means of tracking the unique ID associated with the solution and the event. See Ticket Management.
