Version 8.0.6 This file contains possible setting and value pairs for federated provider entries for use in Data Fabric Search (DFS), when the federated search functionality is enabled. A federated search allows authorized users to run searches across multiple federated providers. Only Splunk deployments are supported as federated providers.
