HTTP Event Collector: How to send logs to Splunk Cloud from command line using curl?

Engager

I am trying with a trial version of Splunk cloud. I created the HTTP Event Collector. Now I am trying to log into Splunk using the curl script available here http://dev.splunk.com/view/event-collector/SP-CAAAE7F. But I guess I am doing something wrong, as I am not able to hit the server.

What has to be the host name of Splunk that I have to use to save the logs?

This is my Splunk cloud instance https://xxxxx.cloud.splunk.com

I tried something like this, I guess which is wrong (replaced with tokenid which I got after creating the HTTP EC)

curl -k https://xxxxx.cloud.splunk.com/services/collector -H 'Authorization: Splunk tokenid' -d '{"event":"Hello, World!"}'

Please help.

Thanks

The URL looks a little bit fishy. You have:

curl -k https://xxxxx.cloud.splunk.com/services/collector -H 'Authorization: Splunk tokenid' -d '{"event":"Hello, World!"}'

From the 6.4.1 Docs Page the URL is a little bit different. Try:

curl -k https://xxxxx.cloud.splunk.com/services/collector/event -H 'Authorization: <Splunk tokenid>' -d '{"event":"Hello, World!"}'

Maybe you just missed the "/event" in your original test?

i facing issues with curl and I am getting an error "{"text":"Token is required","code":2}"

Here is my curl:

curl -k https://localhost:8088/services/collector/event -H 'Authorization:429AAB25-A7A0-4D40-8D1E-F05E114B069F' -d '{"event":"Hello, World!"}'

Please advice.
If you think I missed the word Splunk in the above uRL. I have tried below example as well. Even that does not work.

curl -k https://localhost:8088/services/collector/event -H 'Authorization: Splunk 429AAB25-A7A0-4D40-8D1E-F05E114B069F' -d '{"event":"Hello, World!"}'
