I want to set up a db connection via Splunk DB Connect to a database. We've given the main Splunk local user (i.e. the user name that owns the Splunk processes) access to the database.
There doesn't appear to be an option in DB Connect to just run as the default Splunk user though. I'm forced to supply some username/password to log into the database. Is there a way to get Splunk DB connect to just run as the Splunk local user?
I assume you're running Splunk on Windows right? As far I know DB Connect is a Java Based App and it'll require the user/pass details to connect to any database via JDBC modules...
