Where did the download links for wget go on splunk.com?!

Contributor

i used to be given nice auto-generated links to wget the splunk binaries. for example:

wget -O splunk-6.2.1-245427-linux-2.6-amd64.deb 'http://www.splunk.com/page/download_track?file=6.2.1/splunk/linux/splunk-6.2.1-245427-linux-2.6-amd64.deb&ac=test_modal_enterprise&wget=true&name=wget&platform=Linux&architecture=x86_64&version=6.2.1&product=splunk&typed=release'

now i can't... where'd they go?!

Nine months later, this is still an issue. And the Splunk Fundamentals course still says there are links for downloading via wget.

Update: you can find the "use wget" link, but only after clicking the "final" download button, and it starts automatically downloading. The course makes it sound like it's an option from the main download screen. Also, would be nice to have the "wget" option before it starts automatically downloading.

this no longer seems to be the case

Just updated for copy-paste quickness

product="splunk"       # values can be : splunk , splunkforwarder
version="6.6.3"        # Splunk product Version
hash="e21ee54bc796"    # specific per Version
arch="amd64"           # values can be : x86_64 (redhat, tgz), amd64 (ubuntu), x64 (Windows)
os="linux"             # values can be : linux, windows
pkg="deb"              # Values can be : tgz, rpm, deb, msi

if [ $pkg = "tgz" ]; then
   filename="${product}-${version}-${hash}-Linux-${arch}.${pkg}"
elif [ $os = "windows" ]; then
   filename="${product}-${version}-${hash}-${arch}-release.${pkg}"
else 
   filename="${product}-${version}-${hash}-${os}-2.6-${arch}.${pkg}"
fi

md5File="${filename}.md5"
echo $filename         # Verify this is correct

wget "https://download.splunk.com/products/splunk/releases/${version}/${os}/${md5File}"
wget "https://download.splunk.com/products/splunk/releases/${version}/${os}/${filename}"


# OR
curl -o "$md5File" "https://download.splunk.com/products/splunk/releases/${version}/${os}/${md5File}"
curl -o "$filename" "https://download.splunk.com/products/splunk/releases/${version}/${os}/${filename}"

The 6.5.2 links are now dead. They were working a few weeks ago, but not now:

wget -O splunkforwarder-6.5.2-67571ef4b87d-Linux-i686.tgz 'https://www.splunk.com/bin/splunk/DownloadActivityServlet?architecture=x86&platform=linux&version=6....'

Give unable to connect https handshake (last time thsi occured it was a firewall problem on spunks side).

Direct link:wget http://download.splunk.com/releases/6.5.2/universalforwarder/splunkforwarder-6.5.2-67571ef4b87d-Linu...

Says 404 not found...

So frustrating,

@JFrenchsplunk:
Here's the direct link:

Please to refer to accepted answer above for actual URI format.

Why is it so hard to provide your customers with a standardized direct download link!? Has your web/marketing team never spoken to an actual sys admin?

Can anyone please provide the updated version of the direct links, similar to those posted by piebob and rarsan, for the latest release?

These links only DL the file directly for me;  but as of August/2020, you see the wget link on the "thank you" page, after you've downloaded. This link may work directly, or you may need to choose a version and start downloading first, to see the wget link

Here is what I used to get the latest Linux 64-bit Universal Forwarder. Hope this helps. 

 wget -O splunkforwarder-6.2.1-245427-Linux-x86_64.tgz 'http://www.splunk.com/page/download_track?file=6.2.1/universalforwarder/linux/splunkforwarder-6.2.1-245427-Linux-x86_64.tgz&ac=ga0508_s_splunk&wget=true&name=wget&platform=Linux&architecture=x86_64&version=6.2.1&product=splunk&typed=release'

Sorry, had to make and edit. Didnt paste correctly without a code block.

This worked for me today. Note that I chose the 6.1 release, you can change that if desired.

 wget -O splunkd61.rpm 'http://www.splunk.com/page/download_track?file=6.1.6/splunk/linux/splunk-6.1.6-249101-linux-2.6-x86_64.rpm&platform=Linux&architecture=x86_64&version=6.1.6&product=splunk&wget=true&typed=release&name=linux_installer'

this feature was missed in the migration of our corporate website this past weekend, we're very sorry! we'll be getting it back, but in the meantime, these are the permanent url formatsyou can use to wget the files:

http://download.splunk.com/releases/<version>/splunk/
http://download.splunk.com/releases/<version>/universalforwarder/

These are both 404 for me now, even using single slashes throughout.

I am on my phone at the moment but the last time I downloaded from the splunk web dowload portal less than 15 days ago, the wget link was still there in a box at the upper right-hand region of the page once I got to the final download page. Under a heading something like "Got wget?"
