Admin Config Service (ACS) requirements and compatibility matrix

The ACS API does not currently support AWS GovCloud or FedRAMP environments.

Requirements

To use the ACS API with your Splunk Cloud Platform deployment:

  • A user's assigned role must contain the capabilities required to access a specific ACS API endpoint. The sc_admin role has all required capabilities by default. For a list of required capabilities, see Manage ACS API access with capabilities.
  • You must have a version of Splunk Cloud Platform that is compatible with the specific ACS feature that you want to use. For Splunk Cloud Platform version compatibility, see the ACS compatibility matrix.
  • Your Splunk Cloud Platform Experience (Victoria or Classic) must be compatible with the ACS feature that you want to use. For Splunk Cloud Platform Experience compatibility, see the ACS compatibility matrix. For more information, see Determine your Splunk Cloud Platform Experience.
  • Your deployment must have one or more separate search heads or a search head cluster. ACS is not supported on single instance deployments.

Determine your Splunk Cloud Platform Experience

Each Splunk Cloud Platform stack has an Experience designation: Classic or Victoria. Some ACS features are compatible with Victoria Experience only, while others, such as private app management, provide different endpoints for Classic Experience and Victoria Experience.

To find your Splunk Cloud Platform Experience:

  1. In Splunk Web, click Support & Services > About.
  2. In the About panel, under Splunk Cloud, find your Experience: Classic or Victoria.

After you determine your Splunk Cloud Platform Experience, use the ACS feature endpoints that apply to your Experience.

For more information on Splunk Cloud Platform Experience, see Determine your Splunk Cloud Platform Experience in the Splunk Cloud Platform Admin Manual.
