Deployment Architecture

Unable to manipulate serverclass whitelist via REST

We're trying to script some whitelisting of hosts in serverclasses, hit a snag.

We create a test serverclass named 'posttest' with one app and nothing in the whitelist. When we try to add a host:

curl -x '' -k -u admin:xxxxxxx https://splunk-c-ds.local:8089/services/deployment/server/serverclasses/posttest -d whitelist.0=posted_host

we get this response

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<response>
  <messages>
    <msg type="ERROR">
 In handler 'serverclasses': bundle=serverclass stanza=serverClass:posttest The sourceApp=system doesn't equal callerApp=search</msg>
  </messages>
</response>

This appears to be the same issue seen by a212830 seen down in the notes for https://answers.splunk.com/answers/307335/why-am-i-getting-error-cannot-perform-action-post.html, no there is no solution posted there.

We're running 6.3.0.1.

Found my own answer. The POST endpoint is not always /services/deployment/server/serverclasses/classname

It's different for the different serverclasses (depends on what application you were in when dropped into forwarder management and added the server class). When POSTing changes, you need to use the endpoint listed in the href for the <link> that has rel="edit"

Have you tried adding "reload" to the endpoint url?

/services/deployment/server/serverclasses//reload
