In our Custom Web UI we create users and also assign custom roles. We use splunk REST API and add these users into splunk.
My first question:
Where can i find the list of users in splunk web? I tried seeing under JS node --> Manager --> Access Controls --> Users. I did not find the users that i created from our custom web UI.
I am sure that it is saved inside splunk. When i use splunk REST API /services/authentication/users to get the list of users, it correctly displays the users (user names, roles that i assigned). But i am unable to locate it under splunk Web.
My second question:
I need the user names and their roles in java script to implement some functionality. In JS, if i do Splunk.util.getConfigValue("USERNAME") it correctly fetches user name. I am unable to get role information. I tried ROLES and ROLE, but it returned nothing. How to get user role information in java script?
