Hi,
I am trying to automate a Splunk search and export the result to our database. Is it possible to do a search as a background job and webhook it to my API when it completes?

But which condition can I check to trigger webhook. On which index can I check the status of job.

Splunk sends the alert once the search is completed. So you could set the trigger condition based on your requirements , for e.g. "number of results" greater than 0 or number of hosts or even some custom conditions .

@AkhilKrishnaA, you search your normal data index and then set it as a scheduled search and port the results to your database.
