Summary

Splunk IM exposes a comprehensive API that allows you to automate any action that can be done using the User Interface. This 2-day virtual course provides the foundation for you to use the API to automate bulk actions such as the creation of charts, dashboards, and alerts. See how to programmatically perform computations that can be used in charts and detectors or streamed in real-time. Use the API to manage Splunk IMteams
Learn the concepts and apply the knowledge through discussions and hands-on activities.
