Register your mobile device to a Splunk instance

Register your mobile device or Apple TV in Splunk Cloud Gateway to connect to Splunk Enterprise or Splunk Cloud instances. Or, you can register your mobile device to a Phantom instance.

The Connected Experiences apps support LDAP and local Splunk accounts. The Connected Experiences apps do not support SAML authentication.

Prerequisites

Register a device with authentication code using Splunk Cloud Gateway

Any user with the cloudgateway role can register a device. You do not need the admin role to register a device. Devices with a Connected Experiences app installed have a registration code in the app.

  1. Log in to Splunk Cloud Gateway.
  2. On the Register tab in Splunk Cloud Gateway, enter the 10-digit code provided by the mobile device or Apple TV.
  3. Name the device.
  4. Click Register.
  5. Ensure that the confirmation code matches the confirmation code on the device.
  6. Log in with your Splunk Enterprise credentials to complete registration.

Register your device in the Splunk Mobile app with login credentials

If your admin set up Mobile Device Management (MDM) and in-app device registration, you can select from multiple Splunk instances and enter your instance login credentials to register your device. This feature is currently available for only Splunk Mobile.

MDM allows admins to scale and further secure their Splunk Mobile deployment. To learn more about in-app registration, see About Mobile Device Management with Splunk Mobile.
