You must:

  • Have a Splunk administrator account.
  • Create a webhook to send your PingOne data to your Splunk instance. We recommend collecting the data in index=pingone so that the data model attached to the PingOne App for Splunk will automatically pick up the data.
    • Create a data input in Splunk to receive the webhook data from PingOne. In Splunk, click Settings > Data inputs.
    • For HTTP Event Collector, click +Add new. Send the data to index=pingone. Make sure to copy the token provided by Splunk. For more information, refer to the Splunk HTTP Event Collector documentation.

      Note:

      To use a different index, refer to step 2 below to configure the PingOne App for Splunk to capture webhook data stored in other indexes.

    • Create the webhook in PingOne and add a custom header, where you can enter the token provided by Splunk when you created the HTTP Event Collector input.
  • Download the PingOne App for Splunk package in Splunkbase. Search for pingone in Splunkbase to find the file.
