Configure an add-on to add data in Splunk Light
Add-ons extend the capabilities of Splunk Light. You can install and enable add-ons to configure new data inputs from the Add-Ons view. For example, you can enable the Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux from the Add-Ons view. When you enable and set up the add-on, click Objects to view the data inputs, field extractions, and other knowledge objects that are added to your instance.
