Where does token gets stored when created by splunk UI


Hi Everyone, 

I have enabled token based authentication and created few tokens. I can see them in UI but wanted to know where in backend it is stored. I mean which conf file.

Hi @rishav 

There is no doc showing where these tokens have been stored. They can only be created through web and Rest API. One of the pre-requisite is to having the kvstore enabled for tokens to work. I am guessing they might get stored there for security reasons. I have asked a question to Splunk docs feedback section hope they get back. Hope this helps!
