Getting Data In

HTTP collector , pass the auth token within the URL

Path Finder

Thanks in advance.

The idea is to receive JSON message from Twilio with the SMS response. But in the Twilio's settings I cannot pass a header value for the AUTH token, which is making the communication to fail. Is there any other way I can achieve this ?

Using curl I can post a message successfully to the HEC (HTTP collector).
curl -k https://hec.example.com:8088/services/collector/event -H "Authorization: Splunk B5A79AAD-D822-46CC-80D1-819F80D7BFB0" -d '{"event": "hello world"}'
{"text": "Success", "code": 0}

Expecting to have something like if it even exists.
https://hec.example.com:8088/services/collector/event?AUTH=B5A79AAD-D822-46CC-80D1-819F80D7BFB0

Thanks again.

The answer for this was easier than I though. You can send a post message with basic auth, see below.

Hi
I'm wondering if you can post a little more detail about this, I am needing to send a json payload to Splunk from a mobile app, and the devs want a 1 line API/URL with authentication to send the event, did you get this sort of thing working.
I see from your original question that you were sending a test event with basic auth, I need to do this with a Splunk HEC token and can't seem to get the syntax right, are you able to help with what the syntax might look like?

Kind Regards
Peter
