The Power BI Log integrator modular input use MS PowerShell to access the audit logs based on your login. This is done by accessing Exchange Online.
A. In order to connect, your account needs to have an Exchange Online license assigned to it and you need access to the audit log for your tenant.
B. You can use the following versions of Windows as a Splunk Heavy Forwarder:
-Windows Server 2016
-Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2
-Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
-Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
(*) You need to install the Microsoft.NET Framework 4.5 or later and then either the Windows Management Framework 3.0 or the Windows Management Framework 4.0. For more information, see Installing the .NET Framework and Windows Management Framework 3.0 or Windows Management Framework 4.0.
C. Splunk needs to be running under an account with elevated privileges to run PowerShell scripts.
With Power BI Log integrator modular input you can filter the audit data by date range and it automatically download the activities to a CSV (comma separated value) file to analyze offline or forwarding to another Splunk server. NOTE: CSV file names are generated on epoch time format.
NOTE: If you don't specify a date range the script will automatically search records from last 24 hs.
Splunk can monitor and index the CSV files as new data appears. If the specified directory contains subfolders, the monitor process recursively examines them for new files, as long as the directories can be read.
For instance with a Splunk Heavy Forwarder, you can forward the data onwards to a receiving indexer. You'll need to configure outputs.conf and inputs.conf:
1. In outputs.conf
defaultGroup = <group_name>
defaultGroup = indexers
server = <INDEXER_1>:<FW_PORT>, <INDEXER_2>:<FW_PORT>
server = 192.168.1.123:9997
2. In inputs.conf
This Add-On assumes that you've chosen to install Splunk Enterprise on default folder location setting:
