Hi,

save the below code as html, replace parameters with your search string
add the basic authorization, mypostrequest.setRequestHeader("Authorization", "Basic <>");

  <html>
    <head>
    <title>Ajax POST HTTP Request to Splunk Rest</title>
    <SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript" LANGUAGE="JavaScript"> 
function ajaxRequest(){
     var activexmodes=["Msxml2.XMLHTTP", "Microsoft.XMLHTTP"]; //activeX versions to check for in IE
     if (window.ActiveXObject){ //Test for support for ActiveXObject in IE first (as XMLHttpRequest in IE7 is broken)
      for (var i=0; i<activexmodes.length; i++){
       try{
        return new ActiveXObject(activexmodes[i]);
       }
       catch(e){
        //suppress error
       }
      }
     }
     else if (window.XMLHttpRequest) // if Mozilla, Safari etc
      return new XMLHttpRequest();
     else
      return false;
}
    function schedule_job(){
     var mypostrequest=new ajaxRequest();
        mypostrequest.onreadystatechange=function(){

          if (mypostrequest.status==200 || window.location.href.indexOf("http")==-1){
           document.getElementById("result").innerHTML = mypostrequest.responseText;
