HTTP Event Collector: How to generate token through Splunk CLI ?

abhisawa

UI for HTTP event collector is adding an entry in inputs.conf with a related token which gets generated while creating this input.

Is there any way we can generate this token on command line?

Thanks

Yes, you can use "uuidgen" (with no arguments) from the linux command line to generate a token like the one the Splunk GUI does when it creates a new HEC input.
