How to configure KV Store security in Postman?


I'm trying to perform a preliminary connection to my KV Store collection through the API using the server/introspection/kvstore/collectionstats endpoint using the third party Postman application on a Mac.

I have established a user that I have used successfully in a java application, but I am having trouble adapting the curl example at to make this happen.

Does anyone have experience creating a KV Store connection using a request in Postman?

@organus, I have used Postman to POST data to Splunk via HTTP Event Collector. The same is documented on my Splunk Wiki Talk page Topic 5: HTTP Event Collector (HEC) in Windows using cURL with Postman

The curl command available in Splunk Dev Site is translated to POSTMAN. See if this helps you adjust curl POST request as per your needs.

@niketnilay, thanks for the comment, but unfortunately, I'm trying to update a specific KV Store collection in which we're storing defined metadata. I'm using the Java API to do it, and I was trying to run some simple tests using Postman. I haven't had luck, so far, with Postman, though. I found this reference, but I haven't had time to pursue it:
