Example methods of adding asset and identity data to the Splunk App for PCI Compliance
These example methods cover some common ways to add asset and identity data to the Splunk App for PCI Compliance. You can work with Splunk Professional Services to find the best solution for your environment.
Collect and extract asset and identity data
Collect and extract your asset and identity data in order to add it to the Splunk App for PCI Compliance. In a Splunk Cloud 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, and 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.

Add asset data from indexed events in Splunk platform
Identify hosts that appear in indexed events that are not currently associated with existing asset data and add those hosts to your asset lookup.
Use this example search to compare hosts communicating with the Splunk platform to the set of existing asset information and review the table of unmatched hosts. You can then export the table as an asset list.
| `host_eventcount` | search host_is_expected=false NOT host_asset_id=* | fields - firstTime,recentTime,lastTime,_time, host_owner_*,host_asset_tag,host_asset_id | sort -totalCount,dayDiff | table host,ip,mac,nt_host,dns,owner,priority,lat,long,city,country,bunit,category,pci_domain,is_expected,should_timesync,should_update,requires_av
Manually add new asset or identity data
Manually add new asset or identity data to the Splunk App for PCI Compliance by editing the
static_identities lists. For example, add internal subnets, IP addresses that should be whitelisted, and other static asset and identity data.
- From the Splunk App for PCI Compliance menu bar, select Configure > Content Management.
- Locate the Assets list or the Identities list and click to edit.
