User Manual


Data Manager is suitable for Splunk Cloud Platform administrators who want to automatically configure data ingestion from a variety of sources using the HTTP Event Collector (HEC). Data Manager automates prerequisites, such as scripts to set up resources in the data source, has functional intelligence relevant to the respective data source, and does index-time transformations.

You can use Data Manager if your Splunk Cloud Platform deployment meets the following requirements:
