Hi all  :),

I am trying to use Splunk rest API using postman.

when I try to make a request on port 8089 I am getting a "COULD NOT GET ANY RESPONSE".

the url is the right one and the host is listening to the port 

I cant get a response using curl and python either

the web UI is working properly (port 8000) and sending data using HEC too (port 8089)

How do you know the host and port are correct, if you can't get a response? Or perhaps they are correct, and you have a firewall between you and the host? We can't help you with the firewall scenario, but if you are certain it's correct, try a basic curl command, so you can test connectivity. If you can't connect, you can send the basic command and the result, to your network/firewall admins.

From this page: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.1/RESTUM/RESTusing
Try this curl command, see if you get through, and if so, what the response is.

curl -k https://localhost:8089/services/auth/login --data-urlencode username=admin --data-urlencode password=pass

Hi, thank you for answering.

I know the hostname is correct becose I can send events to that url and the port I am trying to make a request to is the deafult mgmt port (8089).

There is no firewall between me and the host and I've tried changing the mgmt port (to 8090 using the etc/system/deafult/web.conf file) and the same problem occured.

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?

Good news! The event's keynotes and many of its breakout sessions are now available online, and still totally FREE!
