Is there a way to access license REST calls from non-license manager?

Hi,

I want to make some license info available on my customer Search Head (SH), and the easiest way appears to be the license REST calls. Unfortunately, when I run the commands as admin on the SH, it returns zero results. Is there anyway to call these from a non-license manager search head?

| rest splunk_server=local /services/licenser/pools | rename title AS Pool | search [rest splunk_server=local /services/licenser/groups | search is_active=1 | eval stack_id=stack_ids | fields stack_id] | eval quota=if(isnull(effective_quota),quota,effective_quota) | eval "% used"=round(used_bytes/quota*100,2) |eval Pool=if(Pool="auto_generated_pool_enterprise","EI License",Pool), Pool=if(Pool="ECS Licensing", "ECS License",Pool) | fields Pool "% used"

Only way to be able to run licenser REST api from a non-license master node is to add licence master node as distributed search peer to the search head. Here are the instructions for that: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.2/DistSearch/Configuredistributedsearch

Please note that with this method, you would need to remove splunk_server=local portion of your search as the rest api endpoint is not local. You can either just ignore that option altogether, or user splunk_server="name of your license master".
