Deployment Architecture

reload deploy failed on SSO enabled system


Hello Splunkers,


I'm facing an authentication issue with my splunk instance during the App deployment.


information about the infrastructure:

Splunk Enterprise is configured with SSO

My User account has Admin role

Splunk Service runs on Splunk user(Normal Setup as in the installation Doc)

No password has been configured for the Splunk user account



Whenever i try to deploy app using

./splunk reload deploy-server

usually it asks my user id and password which is my Active Directory user id & password.

Since we have enabled SSO i'm unable to get authenticated and getting the below error,

Your session is invalid. Please login.
Splunk username: myid

An authentication error occurred: Client is not authenticated


Could someone help me on this issue as i'm new to deployment over SSO enabled system.


I have pretty much experiences with the normal apply deployment without SSO being enabled.


Thank you
