We are trying to integrate Splunk with Azure AD for SAML authentication.
However, whenever we try to upload the Metadata XML file, we get the notification, “Your network connection may have been lost or Splunk may be down,” though our splunkd is running fine.
Thus, it did not auto-populate the fields in the General Settings. We also tried to hardcode the fields in the General Settings, but it did not work.
Our Splunk version is v 6.5.2.
Would you know what might cause it? Or do you have a workaround that we can try?
The fix is to turn on SSL for the Splunk Web server.
