REST API Tutorials

Splunk provides an API method for every feature in our product. Programmers can use our API to make their own applications, phone apps, widgets, and other projects that interact with Splunk®. Programs talk to the Splunk API over HTTP, the same protocol that your web browser uses to interact with web pages, and conforms to the principles of Representational State Transfer (REST).

Note: We recommend that you work your way through these tutorials, from first to last, ideally trying out the examples as you follow along.
