Building for the Splunk Platform

Is it possible to show rows as they are yielded from GeneratingCommand?


I have written an addon that gets data from an API and yields rows from it one by one in a loop. I use the GeneratingCommand class from splunklib. When I run it in the search-head, it runs for a time, and then returns all the rows at once. So it seems that Splunk buffers the results until the whole process is complete, even though the addon code itself has no such buffering.

Is it possible to have it show the rows in the search-head as they are yielded, similar to how a normal Splunk search does?
