[googlescc_index]

  • googlescc_finding_state_loookup : Used to maintain finding state data in updated_finding_state_lookup lookup. It is running at an interval of 5 minutes which internally uses custom command maintainfindingstatelookup to maintain finding state lookup data and deletion of lookup data which has timestamp >30 minutes.

CUSTOM COMMANDS

The following commands are included as a part of the app:

  • maintainfindingstatelookup
    • Purpose: To maintain finding state in updated_finding_state_lookup lookup and deletion of data in lookup which has timestamp >30 minutes.

TROUBLESHOOTING

  • If dashboards are not getting populated:
    • Make sure if you are using the custom index, then check that “googlescc_index” macro needs to be updated.
    • Make sure you have data in given time range.
    • To check whether is data collected or not, run " googlescc_index | stats count by sourcetype" query in the search.
    • Try expanding TimeRange.
  • Finding state is not getting updated by clicking on the Mark as ACTIVE/INACTIVE button:
    • Check the log file related to user action is generated under $SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/TA_GoogleSCC/ta_googlescc_update_findings_status.log
    • Check the logs. They will be more verbose and will give the user insights on user action to update the finding state.
    • If the state of the finding is not getting maintained after updating make sure that the KV Store is enabled on the Splunk.

UNINSTALL APP

  • To uninstall app, user can follow below steps: SSH to the Splunk instance -> Go to folder apps($SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps) -> Remove the GoogleSCCAppforSplunk folder from apps directory -> Restart Splunk
