splunk install app from an insecure URL



I'm trying to install an app via command line similar to this:
splunk install app -auth admin:StrongPassword

Since the server is using https with a self signed certificate the installation fails, with this error:
Unexpected error downloading update: error:14090086:SSL routines:ssl3_get_server_certificate:certificate verify failed

Are there any options of the "splunk install app" command that would allow me to use an insecure https server ?

Any way of doing this without downloading the file first with a separate tool like curl or wget?

I was able to get it working with the following setting in server.conf

sslVerifyServerCert = false



Download the app yourself and unpack to etc/apps if you have this much permission. Otherwise, it seems you have splunk admin permissions, download locally and upload via manage apps.
