As of 2019, Splunk Connected Experiences is available. https://www.splunk.com/en_us/resources/videos/splunk-connected-experiences.html Part of that suite is Splunk TV which presently allows you to use an app on an Apple TV streaming device (https://www.apple.com/tv/) to view Splunk dashboards and setup slideshows.
At a high level, you have to install Splunk Cloud Gateway https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/4250 on to your search head or search cluster, enable the Splunk TV feature, and select which apps are visible.
You then have to install Splunk TV on your Apple TV Device, get a device registration code, and register it in the Splunk Cloud Gateway app on your search head.
Once connected, you can choose which dashboards to group together into a slideshow from the Splunk TV App on your Splunk TV.
Most dashboards are compatible, and it even has a nifty feature of auto-scrolling through larger dashboards,
embedded reports are not the same as dashboard. OP wanted a way to display a DASHBOARD without login. Embedded reports are just that, reports, you can not display live real time data. SO, how do you display a dashboard without having to login?
yes..... ish...... was not ideal, but I used nginx as a reverse proxy.. I let nginx send the basic auth in the url to the actual splunk server... then nginx proxies the splung pages back to the user.. then i use nginx to block access to any other page that the dashboard user didnt need access to just to be extra safe. It's not idea or clean, but it works.
right. We are also following this same method for one dashboard (lets call it - /ABC) that is on a dedicated search head. At the same time, there is another team that accesses another dashboard(/DEF) on another dedicated search head via NGINX but without basic auth. They have to use Splunk auth to access DEF dashboard.
now lets suppose, we are merging both dashboards (ABC & DEF) on same search head and we want to still maintain the same method of access, in that case, how can we achieve that ?
