Configuring Splunk on Your Command Center

First, configure Asset Manager to export notifications to a Splunk server.

  1. On your Command Center, browse to Settings > Asset Manager Systems

  2. In the CEF Notifications pane, on the Configuration tab, supply the host name or IP address of your Splunk server, the number of the port you want to communicate over (e.g., 9997) and protocol (e.g., TCP).

Create an API Key

You will need an API key later, when configuring Asset Manager input on your Splunk server. Generate one using this procedure.

To generate the API key:

  1. On your Command Center, browse to Settings > Users.
  2. Select a username row and click Edit
  3. On the API Key dropdown, select the Copy option.

    The API key is copied to the clipboard.

  4. Paste the API key to a notepad file for later.

The next step is performed on your Splunk server.
