Approaches to using the CIM

This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of how Splunk Enterprise app and add-on developers, knowledge managers, or administrators can use the Common Information Model to work with data at search time.

Not all sections apply for all users and use cases.

If you want to normalize some newly indexed data from a source type that is unfamiliar to Splunk Enterprise, see Use the CIM to normalize data at search time.

If you want to validate that your indexed data conforms to the CIM for all the models that you expect, see Use the CIM to validate your data.

If you are using Pivot to work with data that has already been normalized to the CIM, see Use the CIM to generate reports and dashboards.

If you want to accelerate one or more data models to improve performance, see Accelerate CIM data models.
