Splunk Add-on for Evanios Operations - Evanios


Splunk Add-on for Evanios allows you send alerts into the Evanios application on ServiceNow through the EVAgent. When the agent is configured, Splunk will send any trigger alerts into the agent and the agent will forward them into Evanios Operations through a rest call.

Integration Architecture

Splunk Add-on for Evanios needs to be installed on Splunk and it must have the update set installed on ServiceNow. This will allows you to create an Evanios action on your queries, which will send data into Evanios running on ServiceNow. This works similar to the Splunk webhook application but instead allows you to send data via our agent, creating a new event on ServiceNow.

Splunk ServiceNow Integration

Event Structure

A Splunk-specific event table is created named u_splunk_events, which is an extension of the base event table u_event. The Splunk Events table adds fields to the base table that are unique to Splunk. These extended fields are described in the table below, along with the corresponding Splunk field names.
