Getting Started

Prerequisites

This add-on will require an API key and secret to access the audit data from ASA. We recommend creating a dedicated service account for this purpose and assigning the minimum privleges. Perform the following steps in the ASA webapp.

  • Create a new service user in the ASA webapp

Install

We can now install the Add-on in our Splunk environment. This add-on is primarily a tool for collecting logs and is only required to be installed a heavy forwarder. It does contain saved searches and other knowledge objects so installation on search heads is helpful. Only configure an input on one Splunk server.

  • Restart the Splunk server

  • Click Add
  • Provide a unique and appropriate Account Name for the account (arbitrary value)
  • Enter the API Key ID
  • Enter the API Key Secret
