Is it possible to call a Python or Shell script from a search/dashboard and output its result in a dashboard panel?

As an example, I'd like to run some whois script and show those information in my dashboard. Since this is just one of many other scripts I wanna try to run, I'd appreciate if you do not suggest to use any app or add-on from splunk base to do the whois search.

The scripts would be located inside "/etc/apps/APP_NAME/bin/", following the documentation.

You can call Splunk Custom Endpoint to execute a script in bin folder.

1) create an endpoint
2) create a javascript to call endpoint
3) include javascript in your the dashbaord, call rest endpoint and display response in the dashboard.

Please check below links for implementation.
