Single Shared User for Organization

Explorer

Our use case is: we have an organization that would sign in to only use the REST API with a web app we have built.

The users do not need to sign in to view the dashboards, so having a single shared user to just present the data within our application is ideal.

For example: we have an application that uses the Splunk REST API to gather some data and display that data within the larger application. We want to simply have a user use our application, but not worry about authorization with the Splunk server.

Im not sure I understand where you are stuck. It sounds like you already have the integration built with your app. Can you expand?

Integration is fine. What I mean is that is this a feasible way to use Splunk.

i think you can create a splunk service user account (a normal user account with least privileges, enable privileges it to run REST API's)
