Programatically create a new Website Input

Motivator

Hello

would it be possible to create dinamically (with an script) a new website input, through the splunk Rest API.

If so, what would be the endpoint needed to be called?

Thanks

Hello

Finally i found that it can be done calling this endpoint

curl -k -u admin:changeme https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/nobody/website_inputs/data/inputs/web_input  -d name=Name -d url=http://urltomonitor   -d index=main -d interval=24h  -d selector=td -d sourcetype=website -d title=myinput

hope it helps to anyone willing to do the same

Regards

BTW: could you clarify why you want to make inputs via a REST API? I'm asking because I suspect there may be an enhancement request to the Website Input app that could solve this problem.
