pass username and password while search head cluster restart

Path Finder

We are using a Search Head cluster
Splunk Enterprise

When the CPU and Memory of servers goes high we restart the cluster and the cluster comes back to normal.

I wrote a shell script with 2 lines.

sudo -u splunk /opt/splunk/bin/splunk rolling-restart shcluster-members

when the alert in SH is triggered it is failing as splunk username and passwd needs to be passed to the script manually.

Is there any way I can pass username and password for Splunk in the script to get triggered as per alert.

Please try /opt/splunk/bin/splunk rolling-restart shcluster-members -auth 'username:password' , however hard-coded admin username and password in not good practice from security point of view.
