Add a sourcetype

You can set a sourcetype using an eval function.

If you do not add a sourcetype to your data and you send your data to Splunk Enterprise, your data is automatically indexed with the default httpevent sourcetype.

Set a sourcetype manually

Set a sourcetype on your data with the Eval streaming function. The Eval function adds or updates an existing field to your record.

  1. From the Data Pipelines editor, click on the + icon and add the Eval function to your pipeline.
  2. In the Eval function, type the following. This sets your source_type field to buttercup_sales.
    source_type="buttercup_sales"
    
  3. With your Eval function highlighted, click Start Preview and send some data in to verify that the expression is working as expected.
