CLI reload scripted input

Communicator

I have a number of scripted inputs on my linux servers. How do I use the cli to reload that input to update configurations after a script or config has been modified?

./splunk _internal call ...?

I am restarting the entire splunk installation currently and would like to avoid that if possible.

The inputs are also contained inside an app, so if reloading an app is easier then a CLI command to disable and enable an app would also be useful.

Splunk is running the script as it is each time, so if you modify the script, the changes will take effect the next time Splunk runs it.

Ok, i had edited the inputs.conf file to change the source value and that wasnt reflected in the output i was seeing on import into splunk.

Is there a way to enable or disable a particular input via CLI?
if disabled=0 for
[script:///app/splunk/etc/apps/lea-cma-o-international/bin/lea-loggrabber.sh]
how do i enable that particular input without using the GUI?

Have a look at the CLI command edit. $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk help edit
