This account is used by the Snaps in the Splunk Snap Pack.
You can create an account from Designer or Manager. In Designer, when working on pipelines, every Snap that needs an account prompts you to create a new account or use an existing account. The accounts can be created in or used from:
- Your private project folder: This folder contains the pipelines that will use the account.
- Your Project Space’s shared folder: This folder is accessible to all the users that belong to the Project Space.
- The global shared folder: This folder is accessible to all the users within an organization in the SnapLogic instance.
In Manager, you can navigate to the required folder and create an account in it (see Accounts). To create an account for Splunk Basic auth:
- Click Create, then select Splunk > Splunk basic auth account.
- Supply an account label.
- Supply the Service URL, Username, and Password for your Splunk account.
- (Optional) Supply additional information on this account in the Notes field of the Info tab.
- Click Apply.

You must create Splunk Basic Auth account to connect to data sources that you want to use in your Pipelines. You can configure your Splunk Basic Auth account in SnapLogic using either the Designer or the Manager.
Configuring Splunk Account Using SnapLogic Designer
Drag a Splunk Snap to the Canvas and click the Snap to open its settings. Click the Account tab. You can now either use an existing account or create a new one.
Selecting an existing account
SnapLogic organizes and displays all accounts to which you have access, sorting them by account type and location. To select an existing account:
In the Account tab, click the list icon to view the accounts to which you have access, and select the account that you want to use.
Creating an account
In the Account tab, click Add Account below the Account Reference field.
Select the Location in which you want to create the account, select the Account Type, and click Continue. The Add Account dialog window associated with the account type is displayed.
Enter the required account details and click Apply to complete configuring the Splunk Basic Auth account.. For detailed guidance on how to provide information required for each account type, see Splunk Basic Auth account.
Enter additional information on this account in the Notes field of the Info tab. This will help you–and other users–understand the purpose of the account, especially if there are multiple accounts of the same type.
You can use Manager to create accounts without associating them immediately with Pipelines.
Accounts in SnapLogic are associated with projects. You can use accounts created in other projects only if you have at least Read access to them.
In the left pane, browse to the project in which you want to create the account and click > Account > Splunk, followed by the appropriate account type. The Create Account dialog associated with the selected account type is displayed.
Repeat the steps numbered 3 through 5 in the Creating an account section.
Avoid updating account credentials while Pipelines using that account are executing. Doing so may lead to unexpected results, including your account getting locked.
If you are using Standard Encryption, the High sensitivity settings under Enhanced Encryption are followed.
If you have the Enhanced Account Encryption feature, the following describes which fields are encrypted for each sensitivity level selected per each account.
