Unfortunately, the Automatic connected car product, service and platform have been shut down as of May 28, 2020. Please see the company's website (https://www.automatic.com) for more information. This Splunkbase app will continue to work with data already indexed in Splunk. This Splunkbase app will not be able to fetch new data once the Automatic REST endpoints and shut down.
Overview: For this effort, you'll be working with Automatic and their instructions for obtaining access to their REST API endpoints.
This app contains dashboards that require deployment to your Search Head(s), an index definition that requires it to be deployed to your indexer(s), and a Modular Input which you may choose to deploy to a heavy forwarding tier. Follow the standard instructions documented in this manual: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/AddOns/latest/Overview/Singleserverinstall or, for a distributed environment, see http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/AddOns/latest/Overview/Distributedinstall.
Additionally, one of the dashboards uses the Treemap visualization. Therefore, please make this this prerequisite is installed on your Search Head(s).
If upgrading, it is recommended to remove the old apps and indexes and start fresh. Tip: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Indexer/RemovedatafromSplunk
You can force data collection by clearing the corresponding modinput checkpoint from
$SPLUNK_HOME/var/lib/splunk/modinputs/automatic OR by creating a new input.

* Added better instructions and links for setup.
* Consolidated all apps and TAs into a single one, thereby simplifying the deployment process
* Fixed math used for fuel dashboards to be more accurate
* Removed dependency on third party viz and switched to mod_viz
* Updated dashboards to take advantage of 6.5 display improvements
* Added vehicle data!
Complete re-write! Finally done!
This app now contains only the UI-relevant configuration. See the documentation tab for explanation.
The app now supports Automatic's APIv2.
BIG NEWS: This update brings the ability to add your data simply by inputting your access_token. Additionally, the new input will keep polling the rest API for new data without duplicating any data.
HUGE THANKS to Damien Dallimore for getting me started with python and allowing me to copy code from his rest_ta app!
New insights into fuel and instructions on set up. Thanks to Todd Gow for contributions to setup instructions.
This is my first crack at this. There's a lot of room to grow and mature this app but feel free to help contribute!

Only tested with 6.2 but I'm betting this works no problemo on other splunk versions.
