Requirement : Call REST APIs and ingest the data into Splunk to specified indexes
As of now, we are using Splunk Add on Builder Application to create apps for REST API calls and importing the data into Splunk.
Limitation with this approach : We are not able to call an API dynamically or on ad-hoc basis only when needed. Team wants to have an UI to call the REST APIs dynamically and show this data into a dashboard.
Is there any way in Splunk to provide this capability ?
Have you looked at the REST API Modular Input app (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1546)? It's not truly ad-hoc, but is more so than building code with AoB.
