How to update the search head configuration from the cluster master?

I'm trying to update the configuration of all the peers from my cluster master. With the indexers, it's eash to put the configuration file in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/slave_apps/_cluster/local and then the indexer receives it, but I can't find any way to update the search head. Is there any similar (or not similar) way of doing it?

Thank you.

Hi @mciudad

If you're trying to update configurations for search heads in a search head cluster, you should be using the Deployer instance to push changes. Check out this page from Splunk documentation covering how to configure the Deployer and how to push a configuration bundle to the search head cluster members.
