Part 2 – Dashboards and Splunk Cloud Gateway

In the previous article (Dashboards and Splunk Cloud Gateway), I touched on the first opportunity to learn more of the new Splunk Cloud Gateway. Now I am going to talk about getting the Splunk TV app going.

One of the first things you need to do is enable Splunk TV in the Cloud Gateway app. In the Cloud Gateway app, go to configure and make sure to enable the Splunk TV (see below).

Next you will need to register the Apple TV to your Splunk Cloud Gateway. In the Cloud Gateway application, go to Register. When you first lauch the Splunk TV app on your Apple TV, it will give you an Activation Code. Enter that code in the Activation Code field of the Cloud Gateway register you device screen. Give the device a name. To continue setting up the device click Register.

You now will get the challenge code to verify. The code is at the bottom of the screen with your registration code. Then you will need to enter the credentials of your Splunk Enterprise account. Then click Continue to finish the setup.

You can verify that the system accepted you Splunk TV by going to Devices. Here you will be able to see all the devices connected via the Splunk Cloud Gateway. In this example I have a Splunk Mobile and a Splunk TV device connected.
