Splunk Integration Guide

Splunk provides a powerful platform for searching, monitoring and analyzing machine generated data. It allows organizations prevent major issues and stay resilient when problems manifest. It can be configured to identify errors periodically or in real time through logs or user device activity. TaskCall integrates with Splunk to bring the alerts to the forefront. As alerts are piped by Splunk, TaskCall’s on-call management directs them to the correct on-call responder and our incident response system orchestrates the fastest possible resolution.

  • The integration is between a TaskCall service and Splunk.
  • This integration only allows alerts to be received in TaskCall from Splunk.
