All DSP releases prior to DSP 1.4.0 use Gravity, a Kubernetes orchestrator, which has been announced end-of-life. We have replaced Gravity with an alternative component in DSP 1.4.0. Therefore, we will no longer provide support for versions of DSP prior to DSP 1.4.0 after July 1, 2023. We advise all of our customers to upgrade to DSP 1.4.0 before July 1, 2023 in order to continue to receive full product support from Splunk.

When working in the SPL View, you can write the function using arguments in this exact order.
| from ingest_rest_api("rest_api:all", "TRIM_HORIZON") |... ;
Alternatively, you can use named arguments to declare arguments in any order. The following SPL2 example uses named arguments to specify the
initial_position argument before the
| from ingest_rest_api(initial_position: "TRIM_HORIZON", connection_id: "rest_api:all") |... ;
Limitations of the Ingest service
The maximum supported size for a record is 5MB. If any records exceed that size, the Ingest service returns an error.
