Is it possible to provide inputs to Splunk through command line argument (similar to python for compiling)? Instead of providing the path of the file/directory in inputs.conf, can we provide an input to it using command line argument while running the Splunk binary?
So, if I'll have to search for a string, can I do something like : ./splunk cmd searchtest "string"
Thanks, but that will actually write into the same inputs.conf file and Splunk will be taking inputs from that path. What I was actually asking is whether it is possible to provide an input as command line argument while running the Splunk or not? Like for Python when we compile a file we do $python filename, similarly, can we do something like $splunk filename?
