sessionKey = splunk.auth.getSessionKey(username,password)
credentials = getCredentials(sessionKey)
to get the credentials where i have passed hardcoded crentials in splunk.auth.

results,dummyresults,settings = splunk.Intersplunk.getOrganizedResults()
session_key = str(settings.get('sessionKey'))

I have executed below python script..

import sys, json
import splunk.Intersplunk
import splunklib.client as client

results,dummyresults,settings = splunk.Intersplunk.getOrganizedResults()

session_key = str(settings.get('sessionKey'))
splunkService = client.connect(token=session_key)
print session_key
~

I have tried this to get the session key.

Depending on how you are executing the script. If it's triggered from within Splunk maybe something in here will help you. http://www.georgestarcher.com/splunk-stored-encrypted-credentials/ If it's triggered from within Splunk such as an alert action, input etc you can get the active session key of the user that triggered the action.

Thanks for the reply starcher,

I have executed below python script..

import sys, json
import splunk.Intersplunk
import splunklib.client as client

results,dummyresults,settings = splunk.Intersplunk.getOrganizedResults()

session_key = str(settings.get('sessionKey'))
splunkService = client.connect(token=session_key)
print session_key

I have tried this to get the session key ...whether import splunk.Intersplunk works with splunk 7.0.1 version .. I have been tried executing this ..i didn't get output it's getting strucked at the point splunk.Intersplunk.getOrganizedResults(). And iam not using any splunk-python-SDK libraries to do this task.

Could please tell me is any other way of doing it.

I'm also working on getting this right. My script was also getting stuck at splunk.Intersplunk.getOrganizedResults(). The reason was that the search command I was calling the script from was not generating any results, and I believe getOrganizedResults() was waiting for results to be generated.

I fixed this by adding a generating command (GeneratingCommand) into my script before getOrganizedResults().
