The “Splunk App for Nextcloud” visualises Nextcloud (http://nextcloud.com) data collected from Nextcloud generated log files and from Nextcloud monitoring endpoints collected by the “Nextcloud Add-on for Splunk”.
An Install Guide can be downloaded here:
The following information is presented in dashboards:
* Current status of the Nextcloud server (available, in maintenance, web server down, host unavailable).
* Status breakdown for time period.
* Successful and failed logins and ratio of the same.
* Number of defined and active users.
* Number of total shares and number of file operations.
Nextcloud System Information.
* Information about current Nextcloud server configuration.
* Timeline of Nextcloud server upgrades.
* Number of defined and active users.
Shares and Storage.
* Number of shares, federated shares, files and free disk space.
* Who has shared (or unshared) what, with whom, how (public, user or group shares) and when.
File and Folder Activity.
* What file or folder operations have been performed by whom, when, from where. Ability to filter the file and folder activity by country and/or user.
Public File Access.
* What has been accessed via public shares, when and from where.
* CPU load averages, free and used memory, database size.
* When and by whom were users created or deleted, disabled or enabled, added or removed from groups, groups created or deleted.

* Statistics and information from the "Anti-virus for files" app for Nextcloud.
NOTE: Since Nextcloud v14, data is written to two separate log files, the nextcloud.log file and the audit.log file. Most of the data visualised by this app is in the audit.log file. Therefore if you have upgraded your Nextcloud server to v14 you will find that the app is no longer visualising data and you need to also ingest the audit.log file.
-This version of the app does not work with certain earlier versions of Splunk Enterprise. It may work with v7.3. It definitely works with 8.x
Get statistics on proportion of file operations performed using Nextcloud desktop or mobile/tablet apps.
Get visibility into which users use which version of desktop/mobile app. This can be used to identify users who are still using old clients.
-Updated information in "App debugging" dashboard means it is now possible to see if any dashboards have been modified locally.
-Two new dashboards:
Shows any sharing actions performed by users. for example when a user shares a file or folder via a public link.
Shows any users created or deleted, groups created or deleted, users added or removed from groups, users enabled or disabled + some statistics around the distribution, time and location of the operations.
Note: a Nextcloud "feature" means that your Nextcloud server needs to be v15.0.11 or higher to show users enabled.
-Fixed SPL query bug which caused the "Current Status" panel to not always show the correct status
-Layout of "Overview" dashboard changed (sorry) and additional dashboard panels displaying information about successful vs failed logins.
-New “Public File Access” dashboard. See information about files shared with the Nextcloud "Share link" feature.
-Several dashboards have additional dropdown filters.
-The beginnings of CIM compatibility. Authentication model done, change model almost done.
-Trends are now shown as percentages instead of actual values.
“File & FolderActivity” dashboard:
-One can now choose a file operation type.
-The “by country” dashboard panel no longer only shows clients accessing the Nextcloud server from a public IP address. Although it isn’t a country, if internal users are using a private IP address, the country is shown as “-internal-“.
“Password changes” dashboard:
-Additional panel added showing password reset attempts.
“Failed Logins” dashboard:
-Several panels now also shown the user name that was used when the failed login occurred.
“File, Folder and User Audit” dashboard:
-Now also shows the IP address.
“User login activity” dashboard:
-Fixed “Top users by login country” to use the time chosen with the time picker.
“Virus detection” dashboard:
-The format of some messages from the Nextcloud Anti-virus app has changed, both formats now accepted.
2.4.0 and 2.4.1 not available due to developer errors
-User login activity
-New “Virus detection” dashboard. The "Anti-virus for files" app for Nextcloud must be installed for this dashboard to populate.
-Added the ability to enter a user name in the “File & Folder Activity” dashboard.
-Added more information to the “Nextcloud System Information” dashboard
-Added information to the “Overview” dashboard.
-Changed the default time period from 24 hours to “Last 7 days” in all dashboards.
-Alert configured for when Nextcloud reports that any Nextcloud apps can be updated. You will most likely want to edit the alert action to alert you via email, pushover, slack or whatever alert action is relevant for you.
-New App icon!
Change of menu layout and additional dashboards:
-Nextcloud System Information
-File, folder and user audit
-Although not a new dashboard, the "File & Folder Activity" dashboard contains additional panels.
