Add the Splunk Cluster
When you add a cluster, an app and a default subclient are automatically created. By default, the default subclient contains all the data. If you do not want to back up all the data, you can modify the default subclient.

In the Name box, type a name for the cluster.
From the Master node list, select the master node.
In the Master URI box, type the master URI where the splunkd service is hosted on the master node.
Enter the following credentials as per the requirement:
Enter the login credential of the user with admin permissions on the entire Splunk cluster environment.
If you do not want to configure Splunk cluster with admin user and configure it with least privileges, then complete the following steps:

For more information about adding or editing roles, see Create and manage roles with Splunk Web.
You can create a new user using the newly created role, which can be used to configure Splunk cluster in Commvault.
The same user should be created with the same role in all the nodes of the Splunk cluster.
Ensure that you use only one user to perform all the operations on the Splunk environment.
From the Plan list, select the server plan to use for the cluster.
Note: Keep the port for Splunkd open.
