REST API Install local App

Engager

Hello,

I would like to install an app on my local computer to a remote Splunk instance using rest api. I get the following error.

This is the rest call that I'm trying

curl -X POST \
  https://splunk-dev.company.com/services/apps/local \
  -H 'Authorization: Splunk sessionKey' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \
  -d 'name=/tmp/splunk-add-on-1.0.tgz&update=True&filename=True&auth=sessionKey&session=sessionKey'

I get a response

<messages>
    <msg type="ERROR">Error during app install: failed to extract app from /tmp/splunk-add-on-1.0.tgz to /opt/splunk/var/run/splunk/bundle_tmp/0fdba2269ccdff6e: No such file or directory</msg>
</messages>

The app is packaged into a tarball using a jenkins job and now I would like to upload it to the test server.
Do I have to make the tarball available on the Splunk server?

Hi @sushantvn,

The app file should be available to the splunk server where it's being installed.
