Compatible with: Splunk Enterprise version: 7.1.x, 7.2.x, 7.3.x, 8.0.x, 8.1.x


1.In order to successfully ingest event data a valid username and password are required. Based on the username and password , an authentication token is generated and used for each API Call.

(DAP issues a short-lived access token after authenticating a requester. The token is valid for 8 minutes by default. The token is a JSON Web Token (JWT). It is cryptographically signed by a DAP private key (RSA 2048), which includes the host or user id along with the expiration timestamp. DAP uses OpenSSL to generate the RSA key pair, validate, and sign the tokens.)

2. In the top right corner select “Install app from file”
