I'm evaluating Splunk and have the server running on Windows. I'd like to be able to send emails with PDF results, but this appears to be a linux-only feature.
Is there any workaround to this limitation? I have full control of the Windows machine and can install CutePDF, a command-line PDF printer, a Python library, or anything else that might be required.
If the answer is "no", does anyone know if PDF support on Windows has been announced as being on the Splunk roadmap somewhere?
Thanks very much.
There's not any workaround. Well, unless you install virtualization software, a Linux guest VM, and Splunk Linux inside that, and use that as the PDF server, if you consider that a workaround.

I think the question is relevant for pre 5.0 Splunk, since 5.0 and up supports reports in PDF.
Thanks for the confirmation on this point. All of the Windows machines are virtualized already. We're OS X/Windows developers and haven't felt like putting a linux machine on-line...but are considering it now.
