Deployment Architecture

Splunk Apps that are installed on a deployment client running a universal forwarder (From Distributed SH)

Super Champion

As per somesoni2 answer in https://answers.splunk.com/answers/426786/is-there-a-way-to-get-a-list-of-splunk-apps-that-a-1.html (which works perfectly) from a deployment server Manager, it is NOT working for a search member of the cluster. I have tried putting physical splunk deployment server too, but still no luck. Is there a way to query REST endpoint of another splunk tier via UI? something like ..

| rest /services/deployment/server/clients splunk_server=my_deployment_manager

The reason for this is to provide UI self catering capability for customers so they can check the status of Apps and they don't have access to Master servers. Any tricks/tips which can make this information from Search Head members (SHC) in a cluster would be highly appreciated.

To use the rest command in Splunk Web against a remote system, the remote system needs to be a part of the local system's distributed search configuration. Try adding the deployment server as a search peer on your search heads.

Yes, the second link says, "Search head cluster with non-clustered indexers", but it's the same process for searching (with the REST command, or otherwise) any non-clustered Splunk host (e.g. DS) from the search head cluster.

I agree to that. But my SHC is part of the distributed Search Head cluster already. But it is only a Search Member (not the master itself)
