Configure indexed field extraction

This topic discusses what fields Splunk software extracts at index time and leads to the chapter on how to configure extraction.

Splunk software can extract the following fields at index time:

  • Default fields
  • Custom fields
  • File header fields

Splunk software always extracts a set of default fields for each event. You can configure it to extract custom fields and, for some data, file header fields.

For more information on indexed field extraction, see the chapter Configure indexed field extraction in this manual.
