Getting Data In

Executing python script as an alert action on windows



I have to run python script as an alert action. My Splunk is on windows.

I tried my script running like this and its working. Its very basic hello world script.

C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin>splunk cmd python
This message will be displayed on the screen.


filename =

I have placed commands.conf in C:\Program Files\Splunk\etc\apps\search\local and C:\Program Files\Splunk\etc\system\local

when I am trying running this script from command line  its not working.
| script python hello_world 
| script hello_world

Error Message: 
Error in 'script' command: Cannot find program 'hello_world' or script 'hello_world'.

Not sure why its not be able to find the script. I have placed it to multiple location.
$SPLUNK_HOME$\bin\   (from command line it take this script)

My ultimate goal is to run this script as an alert action. but I dont think there is option to run python script. I have option as run a script but seems like that is only for shell script.
