Deployment Architecture

What is the curl command used on the deployer to apply shcluster-bundle?

Looking for a REST equivalent of this apply shcluster-bundle -target command:

./splunk apply shcluster-bundle -target https://xx.xx.x.xxx:8089 -auth admin:changeme --no-prompt --answer-yes 

I want to get the session so I do not have to have hard coded credentials, and I want it in the form of a curl command.

This appears to work, and is what the cli uses (from testing with 6.2.5, your mileage may vary):

curl -u <user>[:password] https://<splunkd>:<splunkd_port>/services/apps/deploy -d 'target=https://<target>&action=all&advertising=true' -X POST

Replace the values as appropriate:

Replace <user> with your user
[:password] is optional - the user's password
<splunkd> is the host or IP of the deployer
<target> in the POST data is the equivalent of the value of the -target argument for the cli.

Thanks @jreuter. Seems to be working on my 6.2.5 SHC:

root@sup-ubuntu1-cu:~/splunk62$ curl -ku admin https://localhost:8089/services/apps/deploy -d 'target=https://sup-centos1-cu:8089&action=all&advertising=true' -X POST
Enter host password for user 'admin':
["https://xx.xx.x.xxx:8089","https://xx.xx.x.xxx:8089","https://xx.xx.x.xxx:8089"]root@sup-ubuntu1-cu:~/splunk62$
