Configure Splunk Integration With Event Hubs

Configure Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services Integration With Azure Event Hub.

The following table lists the components used for consuming Event Hubs data.

Set up Azure Connection

To authenticate Splunk with Azure, you need to create an Azure AD application and a service principal.

  1. Sign in to portal.azure.com.
  2. Register an application with Azure AD and create a service principal.
  3. Connect to Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services using the Client ID / Tenant ID (Directory (tenant) ID in Azure). Alternatively, you can use Client secret.



Add Data Through Splunk Web

Define input and ingest data into the index.

Add data input using Splunk Web and configure the following settings:

  • The Azure Event Hub Namespace (FQDN)

  • The Azure Event Hub Consume Group

    Note: Use More options to set the preferred index defined in Create event index.


Explore Data

Refine the data by filtering and grouping (e.g., see recent count of events for jobs).
