Integrating Splunk Dashboard With Python

Hi I'm trying to build a splunk dashboard which sends a token to a python script and then after processing the token value gets updated using the python script, the question is can i directly make the dashboard interact with python or do i need to add a javascript in between the two?

@shreshthsharma, you can use script command in Splunk search to execute a python script placed under $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<your_app_name>/bin/ path. Refer to Splunk documentation: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/SearchReference/Script

Then your python script can write back to Splunk using print and sys.stderr.write. Refer to a simple python scripted input example: https://sublimerobots.com/2017/01/simple-splunk-scripted-input-example/
