I started my trial on May 21st and all was fine until I tried to log in today May 26th; it won't accept the admin creds & other user accounts are also unable to login.
The only error returned is 'Login Failed'. I'm unable to raise a support ticket, not entitled & the accounts team told me to post here, not great.
I have checked the logs for the universal forwarders and they have stopped sending data, the Splunk Cloud instance is refusing the connection (assuming the UF credentials have changed).
There seems to be nothing I can do, I can't request a new instance; not really a great customer experience.
Any help or pointers with how to resolve this (or who to contact) would be appreciated.
Same problem here.
I´ve just started the splunk cloud trial, but I´m unable to login.
I´ve reseted the password several times from the instance menu, but the temporary passwords do not work. Tried with several browsers also, no luck.
Did anyone found the solution?
Try user "sc_admin".
But to document all the things I did do before using that user:
- Reset instance password (waited more than 10m for the email).
- Cleared Chrome's cache.
Those didn't work. But once I used sc_admin and the temporary reset password, it prompted me for a new password and was in!
I just created an instance of 'Splunk cloud' trial and I cannot login into it. I tried to reset the password and enter the temporary password from the email, but this also didn't work. I would appreciate it if you advise me on what shall I do next. I use Chrome browser.
If you have used a Splunk Trial before, I'd recommend clearing cache (I have this issue with my personal instance every once in a while) and trying again, trying a non-cached browser session, or trying another browser to log into that new trial instance.
Let me know how you go,
Thank you for the prompt reply. I tried to clean the cache of Chrome browser and even to use another browser (Microsoft Edge) to log in, but unfortunately I received the same result: 'Login failed'. Do I need to provide you with any data from my side, which can help to resolve this issue?
@Yurii_K unfortunately I'm not sure how much I can help here. A sales representative should be reaching out about the Trial and you can work with them, or you can call our Support lines below for some assistance from our Customer Service group. Customer Support is a paid service, but we want you to have a great experience with Splunk, so we will do what we can to assist.
There is now a Forgot Password function in the GUI for you all to have an automated way to get through this. It has been tested and confirmed to work. Have you tried this process on the trials?
Brenden here, Manager for the Splunk>Cloud Network Operations Center in AMER.
I'm sorry to hear you ran into some issues with your trial instance. In an attempt to make the automation and experience around the trials better, and provide you with a trial on the latest platforms and technologies we've put into Splunk>Cloud, we missed a trial-configuration piece that caused this. We have now remediated the service and you should be able to use the service as intended. If you still cannot log in, we have confirmed that new instances have the fix in place, so you can sign up with another email address and should be all good to go. If you have trouble doing this, feel free to reply and I'll get you taken care of.
With regard to the lack of Support on Trials, we are exploring options for this, and are aware of your discussion with the account team. I will follow up with them to make that experience better as well.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
I am having the same "Login Failed" - I have tried everything I've found here, no joy. Did the reset process yesterday, didn't help. Now when I click "Reset Password" I get a dialog box saying "Contact Support".
My username and password work just fine logging into my account, work fine logging into the community site. It simply will not get me logged into the cloud trial.
What is the world does it take to get access to the trial?
G'day @panjoyce ,
The original problem was an infrastructure-wide issue that has been resolved.
My apologies for the delay.
Hi @brreeves_splunk - yes, thank you for following up. The original Splunk cloud email was blocked so I wasn't receiving the correct credentials for Splunk Trial Cloud. I was able to log in after that was resolved.
