What is the default REST API url to post data at default index?
I have rest api APP configured as input in splunk.

Inputing data into splunk via a RESTful post does not fall within the realm of "normal" activity.

Supported, for sure, but not normal.

See this for more info:

The receivers/simple & receivers/stream rest endpoints probably require authentication. Keep that in mind.

When I use above URL in postman or any tool to post data, I am unable to do so, but when I use below URL I am able to post JSON data.

Do you see any reason why I am unable to post by your URL?
