Carbon Black Cloud Splunk App - Release Notes

Release notes

Version 2.0.0

Version 2.0 contains breaking changes. See What to do before upgrading to v2.0.0 before starting your upgrade.

Note: v1.x has been deprecated and will be deactivated July 31, 2024. Upgrade to v2.0 before then to avoid data loss.

Breaking Changes:

  • Alerts input has been changed to Alert API v7 and Data Forwarder Alert Schema v2.0.0. Some fields in the earlier versions have been renamed or removed from the new versions.
  • Live Response requires an API key with an Access Level of type CUSTOM.
  • Audit Log ingest should be updated after this upgrade to use an API key with an Access Level of type CUSTOM. It must be updated before October 31st 2024 when the Access Level type API will be deactivated.
  • Deprecated the Alert Action Enrich CB Analytics Event. The action VMwareCBC Enrich Alert Observations has been added and can enrich more Alert types.

New Features

  • Upgraded to use the Alerts v7 API & Data Forwarder Schema v2
    • Customers using the built-in alert input will have access to significantly improved metadata and alert types. A complete list of new, renamed, and removed fields is available in the Migration Guide.
    • See these blogs for more information about the benefits of the Alert v7 API and data Forwarder Alert Schema v2.
    • Some customers may see a decrease in alert volume, as Observed alerts have migrated to Observations.
      • In the CBC Splunk app 1.x, these alerts were denoted by category = MONITORED
    • All Alert types are ingested: CB Analytics, Container Runtime, Watchlist, Device Control, Host Based Firewall, Intrusion Detection System
  • New action to enrich Carbon Black Cloud Alerts with Observations


  • Live Response action now uses a Custom API key. This enables improved security posture by granting API keys only the permissions required.
