Installation steps

NOTE: Where referenced, the IA-cb_psc_for_splunk and TA-cb_psc_for_splunk versions of this App are located on Splunkbase.

Deploy to single server instance

Follow these steps to install the app in a single server instance of Splunk Enterprise:

  1. Deploy as you would any App, and restart Splunk.
  2. Configure.

Deploy to Splunk Cloud

  1. Have your Splunk Cloud Support handle this installation. Do NOT install the IA on the same system as the App.
  2. You may consider using an on-premise Heavy Forwarder to install IA-cb_psc_for_splunk, and send the logs to Splunk Cloud.

Deploy to a Distributed Environment

  1. For each Search Head in the environment, deploy a configured copy of the App. DO NOT SEND TA or IA to a Search Head Cluster (SHC).
  2. For each indexer in the environment, deploy a copy of the TA-cb_psc_for_splunk Add-On that is located as mentioned above.
  3. For a single Data Collection Node OR Heavy Forwarder (a full instance of Splunk is required), install IA-cb_psc_for_splunk and configure through the GUI.

User Guide

Key concepts for CB ThreatHunter For Splunk

  1. Make sure the event type is configured properly for the App on the Application Configuration page. This will determine if the data is visible in the App.

Modular Input

NOTE: You will need to configure a new modular input for each tenant

  • Navigate to the Application Configuration dashboard to configure the modular input.
  • Click the Create New CB ThreatHunter Input.
  • Fill out the form.
    • Modular Input Name: Name for the data input configuration.
    • Hostname: The hostname of CarbonBlack tenant you have been assigned.
    • Token: The API key retrieved from the CarbonBlack interface.
    • Connector ID: The connector that is used with the API key to pull the notification data.
    • Interval: The number of seconds indicate how often the input will poll for new data. This setting must be at least 120.
    • Index: This sets the index for data to be written to. This setting should be changed from default, which normally writes to the main index, to a specified index for best performance.
    • Proxy Name: Enter the name of the proxy stanza to use with the input.

NOTE: When configuring the modular input through the Application Configuration dashboard, the password is automatically encrypted into the credential store. If you need to change the credential, create a new credential, and reference the realm/connector id pair in the modular input configuration. An encrypted credential is required for this Splunk App.


By default all events will be written to the main index. You should change the index in the modular input setup to specify a custom location.

Configure Proxy Support

This App Supports proxy configuration. Configure the proxy first in the Application Configuration dashboard on the Proxy Tab, and then choose it during the modular input configuration.
