This app has been archived. Learn more about app archiving.
This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
A simple in-browser gateway to Splunk CLI - Command Line Interface.

You can use Splunk's CLI to monitor, configure, and execute searches on your Splunk server. Learn more about Splunk CLI:

This app does not support executing commands in interactive mode. This means you cannot, for example, run Python shell using 'splunk cmd python' command, but you can list local apps: 'splunk display app'.

Type help for the list of available commands.

Take a look at the Documentation tab for some CLI tips.

A few tips and examples of what can be achieved using this app.

  • Access and modify Splunk settings on a remote server without having to connect through SSH or remote desktop to it. Especially valuable when you don't like adding an exception to your firewall for splunkd port to quickly change something.

  • Access settings that are not exposed through the common SplunkWeb UI.


splunk show config web

This will list all the active settings inside web.conf

splunk cmd splunkd rest POST /servicesNS/nobody/system/configs/conf-web/settings minify_js=false

This command will disable JavaScript minification that would make some js debugging easier.

  • Display license information


splunk list licenses

  • Execute commands on remote Splunk servers


 Run a search
splunk search bob -uri https://remoteserver:8089 -auth admin:password

 Restart remote server
splunk _internal call /services/server/control/restart -method POST -uri https://remoteserver:8089 -auth admin:goodpassword

  • Browse remote server's file tree


 Browsing /var/log directory on a Unix box:
splunk search "| rest /services/admin/file-explorer/%252Fvar%252Flog count=100 | sort -hasSubNodes, name | table name, hasSubNodes, fileSize, lastModifiedTime"

  • Restart only SplunkWeb without leaving the browser. Useful when developing apps with custom python scripts or endpoints.


splunk restartss

  • Package your app


splunk package app {name}

The archive can then be downloaded from the management port of your Splunk installation:
