Splunk Enterprise

Execute CLI commands without password

Hello to everyone,

as in the title, we'd need to run scripts for putting Splunk search heads in manual detention (but also running other management CLI commands), and we're looking for a way to do that without writing admin's password in plain text inside the command, or leaving it written in user's history.

Is there any way to do that? The only option I found right now is using -auth parameter, while instead the use of rest endpoint is not very clear and I'm not sure it fulfills my requests.

Any help?

Thanks in advance!
