The SPL above uses the following Macros:
Note that aws_ecr_container_upload_outside_business_hours_filter is a empty macro by default. It allows the user to filter out any results (false positives) without editing the SPL.
How To Implement
You must install splunk AWS add on and Splunk App for AWS. This search works with AWS CloudTrail logs.
Known False Positives
When your development is spreaded in different time zones, applying this rule can be difficult.
