Why I can't access data from Splunk using REST API?

New Member

Hello every body!
I'm new and i 'd like to communicate with Splunk by REST API using "curl" comand. I tried some examples here but nothing doesn't work.

Example:

Return a session key for the admin user that can be used in future request operations.

curl -k -u admin:pass  http://localhost:8000/services/auth/login \
    -d username=admin \
    -d password=pass

Normally, it's return something like this:

    <response>
      <sessionKey>[value of session key]</sessionKey>
    </response>

But in my case, i obtain:

This ressource can be found at <a href='http://localhost:8000/en-US/services/auth/login'>

I changed the link by: http://localhost:8000/en-US/services/auth/login but i have the same result. So I decided to test the link directly in the browser. I get:

404 Not Found
Return to Splunk home page
The path '/en-US/services/auth/login' was not found.

You are using localhost:8000, which is connected to splunkd @233537 at https://127.0.0.1:8089 on Tue Oct 21 13:07:26 2014.

Someone can help me? Thanks


Remark: I already changed admin and pass by the right login and I use Splunk 6.1.4

The web services are running on a different port than the browser interface. Try:

https://localhost:8089/services/auth/login

in your "curl" command.

Do you need to create the services directory?
