Host attribute for com.splunk.Index.upload in java SDK

Engager

Is there a way to pass host attribute value for oneshot upload in java sdk for splunk?

The example on splunk documentation shows that valid parameters for oneshot upload include both host_regex and host.

Any way I can set it for index.upload? The only parameter that it currently accepts is the path of the file to be uploaded

Thanks!

I saw the source for upload:
public void upload(String filename) {
EntityCollection uploads = service.getUploads();
Args args = new Args("index", getName());
uploads.create(filename, args); }

I think that the change should be:
public void upload(String filename, String hostname) {
EntityCollection uploads = service.getUploads();
Args args = new Args("index", getName());
Args.put("host", hostname);
uploads.create(filename, args); }
Would this work?

Thank you for reporting this. This is a current limitation of the SDK, but I went and filed a bug for it here:
https://github.com/splunk/splunk-sdk-java/issues/58

You can track the status there, and I'll also update here when we've fixed it.

In the meantime, your proposed fix would work. You should feel free to make a local change to the SDK and compile it until we've fixed it in the official version.
