Collect and extract asset and identity data in Splunk Enterprise Security
Collect and extract your asset and identity data in order to add it to Splunk Enterprise Security. In a Splunk Cloud deployment, work with Splunk Professional Services to design and implement an asset and identity collection solution. For examples of adding asset and identity data, see Example methods of adding asset and identity data to Splunk Enterprise Security.
- Determine where the asset and identity data in your environment is stored.
- Collect and update your asset and identity data automatically to reduce the overhead and maintenance that manual updating requires and improve data integrity.
- Use Splunk DB Connect or another Splunk platform add-on to connect to an external database or repository.
- Use scripted inputs to import and format the lists.
- Use events indexed in the Splunk platform with a search to collect, sort, and export the data to a list.
