Deployment Architecture

Is there a REST API call to apply shcluster-bundle with the deployer?

We need a fast and easy way to push changes to our three search head clusters and need a way to deploy updated configuration bundles with a curl cmd.

I.E.

curl -k -u admin:changeme https://<deployer>:8089/services/shcluster/member/consensus

It seems that this API endpoint is not documented in the REST API docs though.

Have you sent docs feedback to have it added? Thanks

What is the official rest endpoint for the OP's question? I am interested in learning this as well, along with the valid arguments passed. Please post a documentation page for this.

Did you figure this out?

Functionality currently does not exist. Needs to though, our org is getting to the point where we will not be able to log into PR servers without a ticket, and i don't want to have to raise a ticket to deploy something with the deployer. We will most likely have to write an api when that time comes. 😞

I'm not a 100% sure, but I believe I've been told that the CLI also uses the REST API. You may be able to figure out which endpoint to hit by capturing traffic going in to splunkd. However, as long as it's not documented this may change without warning in future releases.

Based on the shcluster/member/consensus endpoint you included in the question, it seems you have perused the REST API Reference : http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.0/RESTREF/RESTknowledge

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be an endpoint to initiate a SHC deploy. The closest you could get would be to setup some other system to remotely call the command on the deployer through the CLI.
