I have a python script that help me to filter and process my data file before feeding to splunk.
After that, i am wondering is there a way to run the python without installing python exe.
Is there a way to use splunk python module to execute external python script?
This is because my company wouldn't allow to install other software easily.
If you install a Splunk indexer and change it into a heavy forwarder you can configure it with scripted inputs as it comes with the Python interpreter. Splunk universal forwarders cannot execute python scripted inputs so if it was on a remote system you would have to install a python exe.
