How to index results from cURL?

Contributor

Hi,

I'm at a dead end. I'm just playing around and wanting to index the JSON result of a cURL command. What do I do?

Is it possible to get the result of this cURL and have it indexed in Splunk?

Here's my working cURL.

One approach is to write the results of the curl commands to a file and have Splunk monitor that file. Or you could use the oneshot command to index the results file.

You could set this up as a scripted input as per the docs page "Setting up a scripted input", this would result in the output of the command getting indexed.

Alternatively there will likely be a SplunkBase app for this, for example the Curl Command app or the Web Tools Add-on
