I want to run iplocation client_ip for a given sourcetype automatically. For example if i run
I dont want to run the command iplocation.

I would like to automatically look it up for this sourcetype.

You would have to first convert/port the existing iplocation.py command into a scripted lookup and then make that an automatic lookup. Start here:
