How to add data to splunk with custom source and sourceType value

Explorer

My requirements are to save a csv formatted data into splunk from a custom app. I'm using django bindings.
Was not able to figure out which API should I use for inserting data with custom source and sourceType field values from within the python script.

If your data is formatted as CSV then you probably don't need a custom sourcetype. Use 'CSV'.

That's the default behaviour. I was thinking of if I could change it. Also if I mention "source" and "sourcetype" column in my cvs data then these are renamed as "extracted_source" and "extracted_sourcetype".
