If you also have a subscription to Splunk Mission Control, do not modify the "Mission Control Ingestion Pipeline" or the "Mission Control Index Data Pipeline" in the Stream Processor Service.

Step 1: Get access to a tenant and the Stream Processor Service

Perform the following steps to get access to a tenant and the Stream Processor Service.

  1. The Stream Processor Service team must create a tenant for you to use and invite you to the tenant with the same email address that you use for your splunk.com account. If you do not have a splunk.com account, create one.
  2. From the email that you receive, accept the invitation. If you do not receive an email, check your spam folder.

    Invitations to join the tenant are only meant for the recipient of the invitation. Do not forward the invitation to other users.

  3. Log in with your splunk.com account and accept the terms of service for Splunk Cloud Services.
  4. Click Splunk Cloud Console to change apps and select Stream Processor Service from the drop-down list.
  5. Accept the terms of service for the Stream Processor Service.

Step 2: Decide how you want to access the

After you have access to the Stream Processor Service, decide how you want other users to authorize and authenticate in to the Stream Processor Service.

The following table describes the two different authentication methods that the Stream Processor Service supports. Both of the following options can be used together.

Identity and Access Management type Description
Splunk Cloud Services Customer Identity and Access Management (SCS CIAM) Select this option if you would like to use the Splunk Cloud Services Console to manage user access and authorization. For additional information, see Invite users to your Stream Processor Service tenant.
External Identity Provider (IdP) The Stream Processor Service supports a Single Sign-On (SSO) workflow to authenticate identities from external IdPs through the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) protocol. Select this option if you want to integrate an external SAML IdP for authentication and authorization. See Integrate an Identity Provider with Splunk Cloud Services for more information, including which external IdPs are currently supported.


Cross-domain identity management

Currently, the Stream Processor Service and Splunk Cloud Platform use two different identity and access management (IAM) models. Administrators of each domain must maintain an exclusive set of roles, groups, and other IAM objects. If you want to allow the same set of users to access the same resources on both Splunk Cloud Platform and the Stream Processor Service, you can configure SAML SSO using the same IdP in Splunk Cloud Platform and the Stream Processor Service. Then, users can authenticate to each domain using SSO.

Step 3: Complete the setup

After you have access to a tenant and the Stream Processor Service, you can perform the following setup steps:

  1. Manage access and permissions for users of the Stream Processor Service.
  2. Get started with the Splunk Cloud Services CLI.

You are now ready to get started using the ! See Getting started with the Stream Processor Service templates.
