Support for blacklist and denylist attributes

The term Blacklist is replaced by the term denylist in the Splunk Enterprise Security UI. However, for older configurations, Splunk Enterprise Security might include blacklist attributes. If blacklist attributes exist in your .conf files, you might have to update the deprecated blacklist attributes to denylist attributes.

Otherwise, you might see an error message: "Deprecated asset or identity values are found in your .conf files. Update to denylist attributes."
