Install the Splunk Add-on for Palo Alto Networks on to your Splunk Cloud deployment

To install the Splunk Add-on for Palo Alto Networks on your Splunk Cloud deployment, complete the following steps:

Download the Splunk add-on for Palo Alto Networks on Splunkbase.

Install an add-on in a Splunk Cloud deployment

Using the self-service app install process to install a self-service add-on onto search heads and indexers in a Splunk Cloud deployment.

  1. From the Splunk Web home page, click the Apps gear icon.
  2. Click Install Apps.

For a managed cloud add-on, contact Splunk Support directly or submit a case on the Splunk Support Portal.

Prepare the Splunk Add-on for Palo Alto Networks package for installation in a Splunk Cloud deployment

Before deploying the Splunk Add-on for Palo Alto Networks in a Splunk Cloud deployment, make the following changes to the Palo Alto Networks add-on package:

  • Remove the eventgen.conf files.
  • Remove all files in the samples folder.

Install an add-on on to your forwarders using a deployment server

Use your deployment server to distribute content and configurations (collectively called deployment apps) to deployment clients, grouped into server classes. Deployment apps can be full-fledged apps, such as those available on Splunkbase, or they can be just simple groups of configurations.

Deploy an add-on to your deployment clients

  1. On your deployment server, navigate to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/deployment-apps/.
  2. Add your add-on to the /deployment-apps/ directory.
  3. Extract the add-on.
  4. Navigate to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/deployment-apps/<APP NAME>/default/inputs.conf.
  5. Add inputs for the data you want to collect.
  6. Save your changes.
  7. Restart the deployment server: /splunk restart.

View app deployment status

Go to the Apps tab. The tab provides information on the number of clients each app was deployed to. Click on an app to go to a detailed page for that app. The App Data Size field specifies the size of the app bundle. The bundle is a compressed file containing the app. Once a client receives a bundle, it uncompresses it and installs the app in its proper location.
