I'm trying to use the rest api but all I get is an empty response.
This is what I try to do and the result you see on the row under.
curl -u username:password http://vm-splunk:8089/services/search/jobs
curl: (52) Empty reply from server
The REST API is provided by splunkd which is https by default.

Thanks. It worked as just fine when accessing it with curl over https but not when I used the postman plugin in chrome.
In postman, disable certificate validation to get it to work. The -k in curl (curl -k -u ....) is ignoring the self-signed splunk cert.
Go to File->Settings
Under Request it's "SSL Certificate Validation". Just switch it off.
