Splunk UBA behavior without a valid license

Without a valid license, Splunk UBA will not ingest data. Data is not queued, ingestion stops, and the Data Sources page shows a Suspended state. You cannot add new data sources or output connectors until you upload a valid license file. You can continue to use Splunk UBA dashboards with old, historical data.
