Release Notes

The Splunk ODBC Driver is a separate download that lets you connect an ODBC-enabled third-party app (such as Microsoft Excel, Tableau, and so on) to Splunk Enterprise. You can then construct Structured Query Language (SQL) queries to interact with your Splunk Enterprise server directly from your app.

Changes from previous versions

The Splunk ODBC Driver version 1.0.1 fixes the following issue:

  • Reports (saved searches in Splunk Enterprise 5) that have underscores in their names are now supported. You will no longer receive a "Saved search not found" error.

Known issues

The Splunk ODBC Driver version 1.0.1 has the following known limitations:

  • Only limited SQL-to-SPL (Splunk search language) translation capability
  • Using multiple or joined tables is not supported
  • Reports (saved searches in Splunk Enterprise 5) returning data from the _internal index with a Tableau extract will cause Tableau to fail with the error message "...wrong number of bindings for input columns."
