Security

Webhook SSL/HTTPS

Hi,

we are developing a solution that uses timed searches to trigger a webhook to call an application API and take some action on our system.

In our development environments, the app is not secured via HTTPS, and Splunk can successfully contact our app via HTTP.
We are having difficulty after migrating this code to a higher environment that IS secured by HTTPS.

Can splunk Webhooks utilize HTTPS? if so, is the communication 1-way (Splunk server needs our app's certs) or 2-way (both apps need each other's certs).

We too have a similar requirement, to invoke https application api from webhook. Kindly share if you figured any solution?

Having similar problem here. Still figuring out what should I do to achieve this. As far as my colleagues and I know, splunk webhooks could only send HTTP request. In order to achieve 1-way or mutual tls, you would need to start a server yourself, and wrap the splunk services, so no more good looking interface for you any more. Unfortunately, I could not find much information on this. It will be great if any one could point us to the direction.
