First Time Seen Running Windows Service Help

While this search does not require you to adhere to Splunk CIM, you must be ingesting your Windows system event logs in order for this search to execute successfully. You should run the baseline search Previously Seen Running Windows Services - Initial to build the initial table of child processes and hostnames for this search to work. You should also schedule at the same interval as this search the second baseline search Previously Seen Running Windows Services - Update to keep this table up to date and to age out old Windows Services. Please update the previously_seen_windows_services_window macro to adjust the time window. Please ensure that the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Windows is version 8.0.0 or above.
