How to connect to and query data from Splunk instance in an external React application



I am currently working on building out a GUI for the software I work on and am looking for a way to query data from our Splunk instance to use in our front-end. I have looked at the documentation here Splunk Design System as well as some code examples here GitHub - splunk/react_search_example, but I cannot find a straight forward answer for how to hook into our Splunk instance and query data from it. From the documentation and examples it seems like what I am trying to is definitely possible, I just can't figure out how. 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello @kackerman7 

I'm sharing the POC details I worked on a few years ago. If you are using client-server architecture for your External React Application, I suggest checking my architecture which easily integrates with your existing architecture.

Just go through it, try it in your local lab, and let me know if you need more help. 


I hope this will help you.

An upvote would be appreciated if any of my replies help you solve the problem or gain knowledge.
