Reporting on MOVEit transfer activities


MOVEit Transfer supports the exchange of files and data between servers, systems and applications within and between organizations, as well as between groups and individuals using a common shared folder with simple browser access for users. MOVEit Transfer supports the ease of access and secure file transfer that meets or exceeds an organization’s security and compliance requirements.

By ingesting MOVEit Transfer data into Splunk Enterprise, you can access a number of useful dashboards to view reporting on performance and asset overviews in the MOVEit Transfer instance.


Support for Splunk Cloud Platform is in the roadmap. 

How to use Splunk software for this use case

If you need guidance on building dashboards in Splunk Enterprise, see About dashboards.

The MOVEit App provides a variety of dashboards based on the following key indicators that help MOVEit users have end-to-end visibility about MOVEit Transfer activities.
