I have a SOC (Security Operation Center) that has an API to receive alert content from splunk（splunk version 6.4.4）.When the alert is triggered, I hope Splunk can send the alert contents to SOC API. So what way should I send the alert type to SOC API?

Run a script action? Is there a best way sent alert content to SOC API ?
Run a script is a deprecated feature, though I don't believe that it is in version 6.4.4.
