Alerting

Uncompressed results.csv

I have an alert that triggers a script, in the script I am opening (or trying to) open the results csv via %SPLUNK_ARG_8% (This is a windows system). However this file is compressed with gz. Is there a way to configure splunk to provide the results as an uncompressed csv?

You could use Python's gzip module to read the file as-is: https://docs.python.org/2/library/gzip.html

You can use Python for alert scripts on Windows without installing another interpreter, Splunk will use its own.

Can I specify a python script in the alert configuration, I was under the impression that on windows I could only use batch. Also if I can use python, will splunk use the python interpreter it ships with or do I need to install another on on the system?
