API for Splunkbase

Hi all,

is there an API for splunkbase.splunk.com?
I want to automatically check which apps of the ones we currently use are available for 6.6
I would also like to check if i need to upgrade the apps for that to work, or if i can use the current version of the apps.

Yes, there is somesort of an API for Splunkbase. Splunk Enterprise uses it to install/upgrade apps within itself. So you'd have to sniff the traffic and see the calls being made, then use a rest client to perform them on your behalf. This is undocumented, I believe, but should be fully available.

I needed to do something similar. There is a great app I discovered a couple weeks ago, Analysis Of SplunkBase Apps for Splunk (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2919/) that exceeded my expectations and needs. I highly recommend it.
