You can use the Splunk Phantom Remote Search app to connect Splunk Phantom and the Splunk platform in the following ways:

- Connect Splunk Phantom to a distributed Splunk platform deployment containing one or more search heads, one or more indexers, with or without a search head cluster or indexer cluster. See Connect to a distributed Splunk platform deployment for instructions.
