I just had the Website Monitoring app installed on my Cloud instance. I have a few issues.
On the Status Overview page, I get a message that says "Create an input to monitor a website. Create a website monitoring input now." Clicking that takes me to an Add Data page but the web_ping type (as specified from the URL) is not available and the right side iframe has a 404.
When attempting to create inputs on the Create Inputs tab, I get an error that says "1 input was not created." If I attempt to add the checkbox "Dont create input if URL already monitored" I just get a progress bar that doesn't move.
Checking the logs for troubleshooting, I see a lot of these
2019-10-15 16:07:56,626 ERROR [redacted] proxy:196 - [HTTP 403] Client is not authorized to perform requested action; https://127.0.0.1:8089/services/shcluster/status?output_mode=json Traceback (most recent call last): File "/opt/splunk/lib/python2.7/site-packages/splunk/appserver/mrsparkle/controllers/proxy.py", line 174, in index timeout=simpleRequestTimeout File "/opt/splunk/lib/python2.7/site-packages/splunk/rest/__init__.py", line 536, in simpleRequest raise splunk.AuthorizationFailed(extendedMessages=uri) AuthorizationFailed: [HTTP 403] Client is not authorized to perform requested action; https://127.0.0.1:8089/services/shcluster/status?output_mode=json
Any help would be appreciated.
Disclaimer - I do not work for Splunk, this is not an official Splunk response to your question!
You can not add inputs on your Splunk Cloud Search Head this is due to service offering and SLAs offered to clients.
therefore, build a Heavy Forwarder, install the website monitoring app and send data to your Splunk Cloud
use the current app on your SH to view the data ...
also iitc, there is an index associated with the app, you might need to create that index too
hope it helps
