Alert Forwarder for Splunk

This Splunk Technical Add-on adds an Alert Action, which you can use to forward Splunk Alerts to a HTTP Event Collector (HEC).

Note: This project is hosted in GitHub. You can find more infos about the TA there.


The Setup of this TA is pretty simple. You can find screenshots in the GitHub repository!

Anyways, here are the required steps:

  • Install the TA on your Splunk instance(s), which should forward Splunk Alerts
  • Restart Splunkd
  • Open the Alert Forwarder for Splunk App
  • Add a new HTTP Event Collector
  • Fill in the values of the destination HEC
  • Optionally, configure proxy and/or logging settings
  • Open the Splunk Alert you want to forward and add the Forward to Splunk HEC Alert Action
  • Verify that the Splunk Alert has been forwarded successfully (after the next run)


The TA writes logs into _internal. You can use the following search for troubleshooting:

index=_internal sourcetype="taalertforwarder:log"

Optionally, raise the Log Level on the App Configuration page.
