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:

A role must hold the required capabilities to access ACS ACI endpoints. The sc_admin (Splunk Cloud Platform Administrator) holds all required capabilities by default.

For ACS API requirements, see Admin Config Service (ACS) requirements and compatibility matrix.

For information on how to set up and use the ACS API, see Basic setup and usage concepts for the ACS API.

For ACS API endpoint details, see the Admin Config Service (ACS) API endpoints reference.

For details on how to use the ACS CLI to run ACS operations, see Administer Splunk Cloud Platform using the ACS CLI.

For ACS API troubleshooting help, see Troubleshoot ACS error messages.

For information on new ACS features, see Admin Configuration Service in Release Notes.
