To date, the Splunk community categorizes certifications by a generalized area discussed in the following sections.
A knowledge manager manages (and develops) knowledge objects. Knowledge managers might work at the project level, organization level, or practice level to manage:
- Saved searches
- Event types
- Field extractions and transformations
A Splunk knowledge manager will have a deep understanding of Splunk, its user interfaces, the objective of each type of knowledge object, and so on. Knowledge managers must also look beyond personal use or a particular project, extending the Splunk environment, through the management of a Splunk knowledge object library.
