Building for the Splunk Platform

Can I create an eval function using a python script?

New Member

I know how to mask data at indexing time using EVAL and SEDCMD.
But there are more logics I need to consider.

Can I mask data using python script at indexing time or is there any method like that or can I create an eval function using a python script?

Using Splunk Enterprise you wouldnt be able to do this if you're ingesting through the typical mechanisms. 

The only thing that I can think of that would allow you to do this is using Splunk Data Stream Processor (DSP) - which allows you to create custom functions to apply to data streams and could be used for encryption/masking etc.
