splunk API from browser

Explorer

Hi all ,

I am using below url to get data from splunk

https://hostname:8089/v7/services/search/jobs/export?output_mode=json&search=search * | stats max(_time) AS _time BY "pctIdle" | sort 0 - _time | head 1|rename "pctIdle" AS Value |eval formatted=strftime(_time,"%25Y-%25m-%25d %25H:%25M:%25S%25z")

which is giving output continuously , even though i have mentioned head 1.

below is the actual query which gives one row.

* | stats max(_time) AS _time BY "pctIdle" | sort 0 - _time | head 1|rename "pctIdle" AS Value |eval formatted=strftime(_time,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S%z"

How do i achieve same from browser.

This is expected behaviour as is documented here for the search/jobs/export endpoint:
"Stream search results as they become available."
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.3.1/RESTREF/RESTsearch#search.2Fjobs.2Fexport

To get only a single result (i.e. not streaming), you could send a POST-request to the search/jobs endpoint. However, afaik this is not easily done in a browser.

There seem to be plugins for browsers that can do that, especially for testing REST APIs. However, you can better search for what you need yourself, as I wouldn't know any more about that.

The issue is not replicable in Splunk 7.2. Which version of Splunk you are using?
