I have an online reporting tool, which can generate the report and download it my system as excel.
I recently learned about the Splunk GET method. Is there a way, by which I can use GET to go inside this online reporting tool, just click on a certain button and download the report to my system.
If not GET then do we have any other app /forwarder which is capable of doing the same task.
Thanks a lot for your time and effort.
Yes, please see my app called TA-webtools and its urlencode / curl commands:
You will need to use another tool such as telerik's fiddler to see what "GET" is made when you click on the button in your external tool. Then you'll have to wire that up with the | curl command in ta-webtools. This will bring all the data into the search pipeline as a field called curl_response or curl_results.
So yes, it can be done, but it requires a bit of knowledge on how to create / script web requests, etc.
