About the Admin Config Service (ACS) API
The Admin Config Service (ACS) is a cloud-native API that provides programmatic self-service administration capabilities for Splunk Cloud Platform. Splunk Cloud Platform administrators can use the ACS API to perform common administrative tasks without assistance from Splunk Support.
The ACS API lets you:
- Configure IP allow lists
- Configure outbound ports
- Manage authentication tokens
- Manage HTTP Event Collector (HEC) tokens
- Manage indexes
- Manage private apps and add-ons
- Manage Splunkbase apps
You must have the
sc_admin (Splunk Cloud Platform Administrator) role to use the ACS API.
