License endpoint descriptions

Manage licensing configurations.

Usage details

Review ACL information for an endpoint

To check Access Control List (ACL) properties for an endpoint, append /acl to the path. For more information see Access Control List in the REST API User Manual.

Authentication and Authorization

Username and password authentication is required for access to endpoints and REST operations.

Splunk users must have role and/or capability-based authorization to use REST endpoints. Users with an administrative role, such as admin, can access authorization information in Splunk Web. To view the roles assigned to a user, select Settings > Access controls and click Users. To determine the capabilities assigned to a role, select Settings > Access controls and click Roles.

App and user context

Typically, knowledge objects, such as saved searches or event types, have an app/user context that is the namespace. For more information about specifying a namespace, see Namespace in the REST API User Manual.

Splunk Cloud URL for REST API access

Splunk Cloud has a different host and management port syntax than Splunk Enterprise. Depending on your deployment type, use one of the following options to access REST API resources.

Managed Splunk Cloud deployments

https://<deployment-name>.splunkcloud.com:8089

Self-service Splunk Cloud deployments
To get the required credentials, submit a support case on the Support Portal. After installing the credentials, use the following URL.

https://input-<deployment-name>.cloud.splunk.com:8089


See Using the REST API in Splunk Cloud in the the Splunk REST API Tutorials for more information.
