SPL2 compatibility profiles

The Search Processing Language, version 2 (SPL2) is a product-agnostic language that supports both SPL and SQL syntax patterns. SPL2 is designed to serve as the single entry point to the Splunk portfolio.

Each product that implements SPL2 might include a subset of the commands and functions that are available in the language, based on what the product is designed to do. When a product uses an SPL2 command or function, the SPL2 syntax is used. The syntax does not change for that product.

An SPL2 profile maps to a set of SPL2 commands and functions that are used by a given product.

Current SPL2 profiles

The following table lists the SPL2 profiles:
