Actually in our splunk environment there is no test environment prior and now its present, So i need to replicate all the alerts,dashboards and reports present in production to test environment. I didnt have access to backend environment of Splunk. Is there any smarter way to do that instead of cloning each and every alert. Waiting for response.
The easiest and perhaps smartest way is to copy $SPLUNK_HOME/etc from one environment to the other. If you don't have access to the file system then try to find someone who does.
If that's not an option then consider using a backup app like https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/5600. It will handle alerts and reports, but probably won't do dashboards so you may have to copy them yourself.
