Set a default Splunk Enterprise instance for the Send to a Splunk Index (Default for Environment) function

You can set a default Splunk Enterprise or Splunk Cloud Platform instance for the Send to a Splunk Index (Default for Environment) function to send data to.

Best practices are to use the Send to a Splunk Index with Batching function instead.


  1. From a node in your deployment cluster, type the following.
    ./set-config K8S_PIPELINES_DATA_SPLUNKD_HEC_HOST https://<your-splunk-enterprise-hostname>
    ./set-config K8S_PIPELINES_DATA_SPLUNKD_HEC_PORT 8088   
    ./set-config K8S_PIPELINES_DATA_SPLUNKD_INDEX main
    ./set-config K8S_PIPELINES_DATA_SPLUNKD_HEC_TOKEN <HEC token to write to the index>
  2. After setting the configurations, deploy your changes.
