How to accept batch input from JSON REST API modular input?

I have an endpoint that displays json data and I am looking for the REST polling data source to take native json lists and parse that as batch event input into Splunk.

Any Ideas?

Use a custom response handler with the REST Modular Input that will can split up the batch json response into individual events .

You declare the name of the response handler in your REST setup screen.

You place the implementation of the response handler in rest_ta/bin/responsehandlers.py

Ships with loads of examples to refer to and copy.

Hmm, after investigating the response handlers in the file, there's a default JSONArrayHandler that solves my problem perfectly. No custom code necessary.

Thanks.
