Hello,

I have my own Splunk where I installed SPLUNK ES
and I just got the Search head access from somebody's SPLUNK where I can Create alerts ( no backend Access). Just to see data and create Knowledge objects.

I want to create an alert is 3rd party Splunk and in alert actions I want to use WEBHOOK action and need to give the Splunk rest API to post the alert data into my Search head where I installed ES as a notable events.

how should I post the alert data using rest api from 3rd party Splunk where I got the only UI access to my SPLUNK ES?
how to create an Index using rest API post ?

Thanks in advance..any help would be appreciated..

But unfortunately, that is not my criteria.. I want to create, alert as a notable event in my ES via splunk rest end points..and I want to know what is the rest end that I can use in webhook.

Have a search that finds what you want to send and send it to the other instance via HEC for indexing.Then you can further search and alert or make notables in the receiving instance. A working TA you can use or rip apart and do your own.

Can you please explain me little clear..

I really don't know what permissions I will get for that Instance.. might be only Power user where I can just create an alert.. but not the permission to install apps cause that is in our cyber defense center.

That is the reason why I want to post via splunk rest where I can keep that in webhook alert action.

Can I do that ?

He's saying that you setup HEC on a splunk instance, and use the webhook feature to post to the HEC. You will control the HEC on your end.

Ok to help clarify...

You want to use webhook to post a notable to ES from another search head that is not ES.

You also do not have admin access on the non-ES SH.

Is this correct?
