Version 8.0.2 NOTE: sourcetypes.conf is a machine-generated file that stores the document models used by the file classifier for creating source types. Generally, you should not edit sourcetypes.conf, as most attributes are machine generated. However, there are two attributes which you can change. There is a sourcetypes.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default/ To set custom configurations, place a sourcetypes..conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/. For examples, see sourcetypes.conf.example. You must restart Splunk to enable configurations. To learn more about configuration files (including precedence) please see the documentation located at http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/Aboutconfigurationfiles
Use the [default] stanza to define any global settings. * You can also define global settings outside of any stanza, at the top of the file. * Each conf file should have at most one default stanza. If there are multiple default stanzas, attributes are combined. In the case of multiple definitions of the same attribute, the last definition in the file wins. * If an attribute is defined at both the global level and in a specific stanza, the value in the specific stanza takes precedence. _sourcetype = <value> * Specifies the sourcetype for the model. * Change this to change the model's sourcetype. * Future sources that match the model will receive a sourcetype of this new name. _source = <value> * Specifies the source (filename) for the model.
