splunk doesnt return all the results using rest api

New Member

I'm retrieving data from Splunk using rest API via production port 8980, on the GUI I can see 770 events when I retrieve data I got less then a 100.

here is my code in Java to retrieve data:

```
public JSONObject Postrequest() throws IOException, ParseException {
String Query = "search " + OS
VulnQuery;
Job job = session.make
Request().getJobs().create(Query);
while (!job.isDone()) {
try {
Thread.sleep(1000);
} catch (InterruptedException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}
JobResultsArgs resultsArgs = new JobResultsArgs();
resultsArgs.setOutputMode(JobResultsArgs.OutputMode.JSON);
InputStream results = job.getResults(resultsArgs);

    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(results));
    StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
    String line;
    while ((line = br.readLine()) != null)
    {
        sb.append(line);
    }
    JSONParser parser = new JSONParser();
    JSONObject json = (JSONObject) parser.parse(sb.toString());
    String vulns_as_string = json.get("results").toString();
    JSONArray vulns_to_json = (JSONArray) parser.parse(vulns_as_string);
    if (vulns_to_json.size()>0)
    {
        System.out.print("Splunk return results");
        for (int v = 0; v < vulns_to_json.size(); v++)
        {
            String vuln_as_string = vulns_to_json.get(v).toString();
            Vulnerability vulnerability = new Gson().fromJson(vuln_as_string, Vulnerability.class);
            data_Parsed = true;
            vulnerability.ports_to_List();
            list_of_OS_Vulnerability.add(vulnerability);
        }
        return json;
    }
    System.out.print("Splunk return empty results");
    return  null;
}

```

Hi,

You need to use the resultArgs.setCount(0) function to return all results

JobResultsArgs resultsArgs = new JobResultsArgs();
resultsArgs.setOutputMode(JobResultsArgs.OutputMode.JSON);
resultsArgs.setCount(0); // set this to 0 to return all results
InputStream results = job.getResults(resultsArgs);
