Getting Data In

Can wget be used instead of Curl to export data from Splunk using REST API ?

I am in a unique situation where I want to use Splunk's REST API to export data to a third party system.

Looking at the docs, it seems I am required to use Curl, but unfortunately, its unavailable in our environment and cannot be used. Have been told to use wget as alternative. But I have never used wget except for downloading splunk files.

Does anyone knows if the below command can be executed using wget ?

curl -u admin:changeme \
     -k https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/admin/search/search/jobs/1423855196.339/results/ \
     --get -d output_mode=json -d count=5

curl is NOT required.  It's an easy CLI way to send REST commands, but it certainly is not the only way.  wget probably is not a good alternative, however.  Consider writing a Python script that sends the needed REST commands.
