Developing for Splunk Enterprise

Java SDK: Why does the JobCollection create method return null?

Engager

Some backstory:

  • I am writing end-to-end automation for a microservice that writes events to Splunk.
  • I use Java Splunk SDK version 1.6.3.0, which is the latest version stored on our artifactory

When I call create("some query") on a JobCollection object, I often (but not always) get back ‘null’ and I’m not sure what that means or how I should handle it as it's not documented. Does anyone know?

Hi @kamlesh_vaghela , I basically do it like this: http://dev.splunk.com/view/java-sdk/SP-CAAAEHQ

// Retrieves the collection of search jobs
JobCollection jobs = service.getJobs();

// Creates a search job
Job job = jobs.create(query);
