See https://github.com/jrervin/splunk-rest-examples for examples of how to make a REST endpoint in Splunk.

There are also some helper libraries that you can use.

Here is a library for helping to create a REST handler for providing access to a custom .conf file: https://github.com/LukeMurphey/splunk-network-tools/blob/master/src/bin/network_tools_app/simple_res...

Here is a helper library for a generic REST endpoint: https://gist.github.com/LukeMurphey/238004c8976804a8e79570d22721fd99

But don't have an example for the POST endpoint. Overall, I think the document in Splunk is not good, not enough for a newbie. IBM QRadar and ELK have good document to development
