Admin Config Service (ACS) API endpoint reference

Use the ACS API endpoint reference to learn about the endpoints and operations that provide programmatic self-service administration for Splunk Cloud Platform.

You must have the sc_admin (Splunk Cloud Platform Administrator) role to use the ACS API.

For more information on ACS API requirements, see ACS requirements and compatibility matrix.

For information on ACS API setup and usage, see Basic setup and usage concepts for the ACS API.

ACS endpoint categories

ACS API endpoints are grouped into the following categories based on feature use case:

Feature Endpoints
Configure IP allow lists access/{feature}/ipallowlists

Configure outbound ports access/outbound-ports

access/outbound-ports/{port}

Manage authentication tokens tokens

tokens/{tokenID}

Manage HTTP Event Collector (HEC) tokens inputs/http-event-collectors

inputs/http-event-collectors/{hec-token-name}

Manage indexes indexes

indexes/{name}

Manage private apps and Splunkbase apps (Victoria Experience) apps/victoria

apps/victoria/{app_name}

Manage private apps (Classic Experience) apps
apps/{app_name}

Authentication and authorization

The ACS API accepts a JSON Web Token (JWT) for authentication. You can create this token in the Splunk Cloud Platform UI or using the ACS API. For more information see Create an authentication token.


Configure IP allowlists

The ACS API provides the following endpoints to configure IP allowlists. For more information on how to configure IP allowlists using the ACS API, see Configure IP allowlists for Splunk Cloud Platform.
