Deployment Architecture

Is there a way to reload server class from the Splunk GUI?

Path Finder


I'm using Splunk 6.1.4 deployment server with quite many forwarders connecting to it for apps/TAs. Whenever I make a change on a TA or App, is there a way to reload a specific server class (or the whole deployment server at least)?

I'm aware of splunk reload deploy-server [-class] command on the CLI, just wondering is something available on the GUI?

It is actually quite easy. Use the URL below, substituting your host name for myHostName and the serverClass you want to reload for serverClassName


Vote this up if it works for you!


I'm currently using 6.2.0 and the only way I've found to reploy a server class from the GUI is to go to "edit clients" and then select "save" which then kicks off a reload of the server class.

What would be nice is a "reload" drop down option from the server class tab in the GUI, maybe this could be submitted as a future enhancement to the deployment GUI.
