Splunk Cloud Platform

Use Edge Processors

Manage users for the Edge Processor solution

The Edge Processor service is accessed through a tenant in the Splunk cloud environment. This tenant is connected to a Splunk Cloud Platform deployment and uses it as an identity provider for single sign-on (SSO). As a result, the tenant accepts the same login credentials as the Splunk Cloud Platform deployment.

If you configured Splunk Cloud Platform to use another service as the identity provider for single sign-on (SSO), then use your SSO credentials when logging in to the tenant.

All of the users on that Splunk Cloud Platform deployment can access the Edge Processor service and view the general user interface. However, if a user's account does not have the necessary capabilities, then they cannot view, create, update, or delete resources such as Edge Processors, pipelines, destinations, and source types. To allow a user to make full use of the Edge Processor solution, you must grant them the admin_all_objects capability in the connected Splunk Cloud Platform deployment. See Define roles on the Splunk platform with capabilities in the Securing Splunk Cloud Platform manual for more information.
