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 Platform deployment, work with Splunk Professional Services to design and implement an asset and identity collection solution.
- 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.
