About this event

Welcome back to the May 2024 edition of Edinburgh Splunk User Group. We have two guest speakers coming in from across the world, so will be only livestreaming this session. Our post-.conf24 session should be in person and will be planned for not too long after .conf24 takes place.


This month we've got two speakers from across the world (order of speakers subject to change):

Firstly, Jaco van der Schyff from Datapunctum AG will discuss "Managing Splunk Alerts with Alert Manager Enterprise 3.0".

Then, David Condliffe from VisiCore Technology Group, will cover "Building Custom Splunk Apps and Dashboards"

Throughout the session, myself and Tom be in the event chat where attendees will be encouraged to bring up issues or ideas they've had with Splunk. If you want to bring your issue to the session, please get in touch with us prior to the event so we can ensure we can help with your issue. We'll also provide the link to our conference call on the day of the session if people want to attend.


Our session will be hosted online through YouTube Live.
