splunk python script

Explorer

Hi,

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.

Thanks.

If you use scripted input, you will not need to install python module. You can filter the data file, then splunk monitor the file and index it.

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.
