Query for a list of users in a search head cluster


Query for a list of all users across a search head cluster

Not all users are returned by the query below
| rest /services/authentication/users

Steps so far
I've searched through various other answers and it's been suggested that the rest query pulls only from the search head you are logged into.

Hi pattokt,

Just run the exact same SPL from the Splunk instance that is configured to run the Monitoring Console, because this instance should have all other instances as search peers and therefore the REST search will query these instances as well and provide a list back of all the users logged into the instances.

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

Hello MuS,

Unfortunately, this did not appear to work. There are still accounts, which I expect to see, but are not.
