Manage ACS API access with capabilities

The Admin Config Service (ACS) API lets you manage access to ACS API endpoints using the role-based access controls of Splunk Cloud Platform. To run a specific ACS operation against an ACS endpoint, a user's assigned role must contain the capabilities required to access the endpoint.

For example, to run a POST operation against the indexes endpoint to create a new index, your role must have the indexes_edit capability.

Any user whose role contains the required capabilities can run operations against ACS API endpoints, not just the sc_admin (Splunk Cloud Platform Admin) role.

For instructions on how to create roles and assign capabilities, see Create and manage roles with Splunk Web..

For more information on role-based access controls in Splunk Cloud Platform, see Define roles on the Splunk platform with capabilities.

Required ACS capabilities

The following table lists the capabilities required to run ACS operations against each ACS endpoint. The sc_admin role has the required capabilities to run operations against all ACS endpoints by default.
