Installation

Enable user id and password for starting splunk

Hi Team,

I started splunk with the below command after installation:
./splunk start --no-prompt --accept-license

I then created a user using the below CLI command:
splunk add user asing13 -role Admin -password notmypassword

But now I don't get asked a password when start or stop splunk. How can I enable userid and password check for starting and stopping splunk.

I have already gone through the below documentation but did not find my answer. Tried creating file and the hashed password and all stuff written. Maybe I missed something :
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.1.0/Security/Secureyouradminaccount

Took backup of ldap.conf file as well to check if that could be the reason but still splunk doesn't ask for userid and password.

One is never asked for credentials when starting or stopping Splunk.  Some other commands require credentials, but not start/stop.

Thanks alot @richgalloway !

Sorry I got confused with other operations we do in splunk like adding the deployment manager, etc which requires the user and password.
