Edge Delta Splunk Mapper

Create a payload for the Splunk event endpoint.

Overview

The Splunk Mapper node applies mappings to create a new payload for the Splunk event endpoint. The output of this node can only be received by the Splunk output node. This node can ingest a log type or a custom type. There are some restrictions around what types of values can populate certain fields, for example the “event” field of the Splunk payload can only take string values, json strings, and json/maps.

Most of the fields in the schema can be customized, except “event” and “index”. If not customized, it will use the default value:

  • Time: item["timestamp"]
  • Host: item["resource"]["host.name"]
  • Source: item["resource"]["__src_name"]
  • Sourcetype: item["resource"]["src_type"]
  • Event: item["body"]
  • Fields: item["attributes"]
  • Index: none

If the specified field is missing from the incoming item, an empty string will be used as default value.

Example Configuration

nodes:
  - name: splunk_payload_mapping_example
    type: splunk_mapper
    splunk_source_type: item["resource"]["src_type"]
    splunk_source: item["resource"]["__src_name"]
    splunk_host: item["resource"]["host.name"]
    splunk_index: "edgedelta"
    splunk_event: item["body"]
    splunk_fields: item["attributes"]
    splunk_time: item["timestamp"]

Example Input log

nodes:
  - name: <node name>
    type: <node type>

type: splunk_mapper

The type parameter specifies the type of node being configured. It is specified as a string from a closed list of node types. It is a required parameter.

nodes:
  - name: <node name>
    type: <node type>

splunk_event

The splunk_event parameter defines the event field of the Splunk payload from the given input item. It is specified with CEL and you can use CEL macros. It is required.
