When you write Splunk docs, don't add trademark attribution for Splunk products. Splunk trademarked items are in the footer of the splunk.com webpage.
Use Splunk as a noun if you mean the company. Don't use Splunk as a verb. You can use Splunk as an adjective. For example, "Search your data using Splunk software." See Splunk product terminology to choose the best product terminology in your writing.
Don't use an apostrophe to make product names, company names, or trademarked terms possessive or plural. Incorrect use can dilute the trademark or registered trademark. See the following examples:
