Add data with Python

Hello Splunkers!

I want to make a page on splunk that resembles to "add data" page on which one can drag and drop a file to add it into Splunk. Anyone knows where I can find the python code to do that ? Or maybe some code that allows me to connect to splunk and input data from a file.

Best regards,
David

The Splunk Python SDK contains a script called "upload.py" in the root of the "examples" directory. Should be just what you're looking for. Have a look: https://github.com/splunk/splunk-sdk-python/blob/master/examples/upload.py

Sounds like you're reinventing the wheel a bit here. What's the purpose behind this exercise? Funzies or are you trying to build an external file input page? If it's the later, I recommend installing a "heavy forwarder" and giving your users access to the add data page. If it's for fun, then we got a long conversation ahead of us.

I want to make an app that allows you to drag and drop PCAP files-> read + convert to selecter format-> splunk it... so yeah sort of reinventing the wheel for the drag and drop page but i want to make something that looks nice.
