Hosts per deployment server

Splunk Cloud customer. Is there a REST command to list hosts (deployment clients) per deployment server without actually being on the deployment server itself?

Don't do it with rest, have the DS forward its logs to the Indexer tier and then do a search like this:

index=_internal phone*home* | stats dc(host) values(host)

From looking at the docs (https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.3/RESTREF/RESTdeploy#deployment.2Fserver.2Fclients), it looks like https://<deployment server>:<mgmt port>/services/deployment/server/clients is what you need.

Do you want to run the REST command (from search bar) from a search head to list the deployment clients? If yes, then it's only possible if your current search head has that deployment server as search peer. That way when you run the rest command.

You may also run search query on internal logs of the deployment server to find deployment client phonehome events.
