refresh from batch file and authenticating at the same time

Path Finder

I'm writing a batch file that will send an http command to refresh my splunk instance. This works fine when I have already logged in with my browser once, but If I haven't logged in recently, it won't refresh and instead ask me to login.

The command sent by my batch file is

http://admin:pass@localhost:8000/en-US/debug/refresh

I always get redirected to

http://localhost:8000/en-US/account/login?return_to=%2Fen-US%2Fdebug%2Frefresh

How to bypass this page?

Hi Javo222,

take a look at this App https://apps.splunk.com/app/1871/ it was written for such use cases.
It will provide a new search command called refresh which can be called from cli or scheduled as saved search.

hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

Update:

there will be soon an update to the app released which works on Splunk 7.1.x. It also features the option to only reload one specific entity.

Link to the app: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1871/#/details

Hi MuS, Thanks! I added the App to my Splunk but I'm not sure how to use it. Is there any documentation available?

simply enter this in the search field

| refresh

you can save it as saved search and schedule it that way or call it from the cli like this

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk search "| refresh"

hope that helps ...

Ahh really good thanks! One last question hopefully, is there a way to refresh only some modules? Similar to /debug/refresh?entity=data/ui/views
It seems "| refresh?entity=data/ui/views" doesn't work
