Event Push - Splunk Add-On by Deductiv

DEPRECATION NOTICE: This app has been deprecated and superseded by Export Everything.

This app allows you to push Splunk search results to remote destinations. Currently supports:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 Buckets (search command)
  • Splunk HTTP Event Collector (alert action + search command)

AWS S3 Event Push Search Command (s3ep)


search | s3ep credential=<credential name> bucket=<bucket> outputfile=<[folder/]filename> outputformat=[json|raw|kv|csv|tsv|pipe] compression=[true|false] fields=<fields list>


Push Splunk events to AWS S3 over JSON or raw text. The S3 bucket can be configured in the app setup page or in hep.conf directly. It can be configured to use the assumed role of the search head EC2 instance, or up to 20 OAuth credentials can be configured.


  • Credential

    Syntax: credential=<credential name>
    Description: The name/alias of the configured credential
    Default: The credential specified in the "default_credential" setting in hep.conf will be used. This can be specified in the file by ID (e.g. credential1) or alias. If none is set and use_arn is enabled in the configuration, the assumed role of the local EC2 instance will be used.

  • Bucket

    Syntax: bucket=<bucket name>
    Description: The name of the destination S3 bucket
    Default: The bucket name defined in hep.conf, aws stanza

  • Output File

    Syntax: outputfile=<[folder/]file name>
    Description: The name of the file to be written to the S3 bucket. If compression=true, a .gz extension will be appended. If compression is not specified and the filename ends in .gz, compression will automatically be applied.
    Default: app_username_epoch.ext (e.g. search_admin_1588000000.log). json=.json, csv=.csv, tsv=.tsv, pipe=.log, kv=.log, raw=.log
    Keywords: __now__=epoch, __today__=date in yyyy-mm-dd format, __nowft__=timestamp in yyyy-mm-dd_hhmmss format.

  • Output Format

    Syntax: outputformat=[json|raw|kv|csv|tsv|pipe]
    Description: The format written for the output events/search results
    Default: csv

  • Fields

    Syntax: fields="field1, field2, field3"
    Description: Limit the fields to be written to the S3 file
    Default: All (Unspecified)

  • Compression

    Syntax: compression=[true|false]
    Description: Compress the output into a .gz file before uploading to S3
    Default: false, unless outputfile ends in .gz

Splunk HEC Event Push Search Command (hep)


search | hep host=[host_value|$host_field$] source=[source_value|$source_field$] sourcetype=[sourcetype_value|$sourcetype_field$] index=[index_value|$index_field$]


Push Splunk events to an HTTP listener (such as Splunk HEC) over JSON.


  • Host

    Syntax: host=[host_value|$host_field$]
    Description: Field or string to be assigned to the host field on the pushed event
    Default: $host$, or if not defined, the hostname of the sending host (from inputs.conf)

  • Source

    Syntax: source=[source_value|$source_field$]
    Description: Field or string to be assigned to the source field on the pushed event
    Default: $source$, or if not defined, it is omitted

  • Sourcetype

    Syntax: sourcetype=[sourcetype_value|$sourcetype_field$]
    Description: Field or string to be assigned to the sourcetype field on the pushed event
    Default: $sourcetype$, or if not defined, json

  • Index

    Syntax: index=[index_value|$index_field$]
    Description: The remote index in which to store the pushed event
    Default: $index$, or if not defined, the remote endpoint's default.

We welcome your input on our app feature roadmap, which can be found on Trello.

  • Added "Use ARN" functionality to leverage the Search Head EC2 instance's assumed role (as returned by get-caller-identity).

** Special thanks to Steve McMaster for the help with the AES credential encryption/decryption in his splunksecrets SplunkSecrets code. He made special changes for us so it would work as a module within Splunk's Python environment.
