TIPS & TRICKS

RDP to Windows Server from a Splunk Dashboard – Example Code

A while back, I wrote  blog post explaining how to RDP to a Windows Server from a Splunk Dashboard.  The steps involved the following:

  1. Create a Controller – this generates the .rdp file on the server and delivers it to the client.
  2. Create a custom endpoint in web.conf – this part enables url access to the controller created above.
  3. Add Javascript to the dashboard – this part renders the icon and passes the necessary parameters to the controller (via the custom endpoint).

All the nitty-gritty details were spelled out in the blog post.  However, if you learn better by example (like I do), then there is a new GitHub repo that has a working example for you.  In the example, I am just using a lookup file to list some servers, but you would use a “real” search for your environment.  Anyway, the link is below:
