Splunk Add-on for SFDC Streaming API

Splunk Cloud
Splunk Labs
This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
The Salesforce Streaming API enables streaming of events using push technology and provides a subscription mechanism for receiving events in near real-time. The Streaming API subscription mechanism supports multiple types of events, including PushTopic events, generic events, platform events, and Change Data Capture events. This add-on helps ingest all the above-mentioned streaming events into Splunk.


Install the add-on on Forwarders and IDM.

(Splunk Cloud Platform deployments on Victoria Experience do not require IDM. If your deployment is on Victoria Experience you can run add-ons that contain scripted and modular inputs directly on the search head. To determine if your deployment has the Classic or Victoria experience, see Determine your Splunk Cloud Platform Experience.

For Splunk Cloud, refer to Install apps in your Splunk Cloud deployment. For customer managed deployments, refer to the standard methods for Splunk Add-on installs as documented for a Single Server Install or a Distributed Environment Install.



Setup Connected App and OAuth access

  • Create a connected app and use the consumer key and secret to authenticate the application
    (via SETUP -> Platform Tools → Apps → App Manager -> New Connected App)
  • Enable OAuth access for the application.
  • Setup Callback URL -> https://<sfdc-instance>/services/oauth2/callback
  • Get OAuth Credentials (Consumer Key and Consumer Secret)
  • Add Full Access to Selected OAuth scopes under OAuth Settings for the connected app
  • Enable Real-time streaming objects
  • Splunk add-on for SFDC Streaming API will require SFDC username, password, consumer key and consumer password to create a connection.

NOTE: Security Token
When you access Salesforce from an IP address that isn’t trusted for your company, and you use a desktop client or the API, you need a security token to log in.
What’s a security token? It’s a case-sensitive alphanumeric code that’s tied to your password. Whenever your password is reset, your security token is also reset.

password : \<password> + <security_token>

Another alternative to avoid using the security token, is to relax IP restrictions.


  • Install Splunk add-on for SFDC Streaming API
  • Create a connection in the Conntection tab with SFDC username, password, consumer key and consumer password to create a connection. Check the sandbox option if you're connecting to a SFDC sandbox instance (http://test.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token)
  • Create a data input in the Inputs tab to subscribe to any of the channels Real-time streaming objects. (For instance: To subscribe to the LoginEventStream set channel topic to /event/LoginEventStream)


Authorization Failure

ERROR('Authentication failed', {'error': 'invalid_grant', 'error_description': 'authentication failure'})

Check if your creds are correct. You can curl your SFDC instance to validate your credentials.
curl -d 'grant_type=password&client_id=<client_id>&client_secret=<client_secret>&username=<username>&password=<password>' "https://login.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token"

Additional permissions may be required: Additional setting in the App: Apps -> [select your "Connected App"] -> Edit -> Oauth Policies -> Permitted Users -> All users may self-authorize.

Channel Subscription Failure

ERROR pid=28219 tid=MainThread file=base.py:_send_payload_with_auth:321 | server error response for Channel (/meta/subscribe): '403:denied_by_security_policy:create_denied'
