How to configure this dashboard

1. Index relevant data sources from a device, application, or system in Splunk.

2. Map the data to the data models in your deployment. See the Common Information Model Add-on Manual for more information. The Common Information Model fields bunit and category are derived by automatic identity lookup, and do not need to be mapped directly.

Dashboard description

Predictive Analytics dashboard data is derived from the data model you select for your search. To verify that data is present, search the applicable data model using the search structure:

| datamodel <data_model_name> <object_object> search


| datamodel Authentication Authentication search 

To verify that events are being accelerated by the data model correctly, use this search (be careful not to search across all time):

 | tstats summariesonly=true count from datamodel=<data_model_name> by user
