After launching an AWS instance for Splunk Enterprise AMI, what is the default username/password to access Splunk Web?

I've launched an AWS instance for the Splunk Enterprise AMI (https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B00PUXWXNE ) with a public address. When I open http://pubic_address:8000/ on the browser, I cannot log in with user 'admin' and password 'changeme'. What are the default username/password to use?

I think the user name is still admin, but the password is the instance ID.

As of version 7.2.5 the default password has been updated

username: admin
password: SPLUNK-$instance id$

This answer is only for instance up to v7.2.5 - after v7.2.5 the password is SPLUNK-instance ID 

per the docs: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.1.0/Admin/AbouttheSplunkAMI :

  • For Splunk version 7.2.5 and above, log into Splunk Enterprise with the credentials:
    • username: admin
    • password: SPLUNK-$instance id$
    • It is recommended that you change your password after login.
  • For Splunk version below 7.2.5, log into Splunk Enterprise with the credentials:
    • username: admin
    • password: $instance id$
    • On the next screen, set a new password.

Looks like you're just missing an 'E' at the end of the URL
