Getting Data In

External Scripts


Hi all. I need to get data from Splunk by invoking an external scrip(Python etc..). Directly when i run the script i need to get the output data. For e.g i need to get the data from an index "CDM" Is there a way to do it? How to start with this? Thanks in advance.

It sounds like you are wanting a Python script that dispatches a search in Splunk, and then returns the results?

If that is the case, check out the Python SDK. I think one of the example scripts does what you want.
