I am trying to retrieve the password which is stored in passwords.conf but it is returning blank. Below is the code which is being triggered by an alert. The alert is setup using the admin account. I have not set any realm while taking input from users in the setup page.
# Modify to fit your environment
# Set realm if entered with password
# Update App Name
# Search needs to be owned by someone with admin rights to access passwords
# Splunk Host
# Splunk Python
SPLUNK_PYTHON="$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk cmd python"
# Read sessionKey from STDIN
key=`echo $sessionKey | sed s/sessionKey=//g`
decoded_key=`$SPLUNK_PYTHON -c "import sys, urllib as ul; print ul.unquote_plus('$key')"`
clear_password=`curl -s -k -H "Authorization: Splunk $decoded_key" https://$SPLUNK_HOST:8089/servicesNS/$ALERT_OWNER/$APP/storage/passwords/$CREDENTIAL_REALM:$CREDENTI... | grep clear_password | sed -re 's/^\s+<s:.*?>(.*?)<.*?>$/\1/g'`
