Hi,

Looking for code snippet in How to read Ajax passed JSON object here????? section of my .py file

JavaScript:

var dataVal = {'JSONObjKey': JSONObject,'SimpleString': 'String1'};
var JsonData = JSON.stringify(dataVal);
function callScript(){
             $.ajax({
                   type: "POST",
                   url: "/custom/MyApp/my_script/my_endpoint",
                   data: JsonData,
                   contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",

[endpoint:my_script]

my_script.py

import logging
import cherrypy
import splunk.appserver.mrsparkle.controllers as controllers
from splunk.appserver.mrsparkle.lib.util import make_splunkhome_path
from splunk.appserver.mrsparkle.lib.decorators import expose_page

 _APPNAME = 'MyApp'
 def setup_logger(level):
  logger = logging.getLogger('splunk.appserver.%s.controllers.my_script' % _APPNAME)
  logger.propagate = False  # Prevent the log messages from being duplicated in the python.log file
  logger.setLevel(level)
  file_handler = logging.handlers.RotatingFileHandler(
      make_splunkhome_path(['var', 'log', 'splunk', 'my_script_controller.log']), maxBytes=25000000, backupCount=5)
  formatter = logging.Formatter('%(asctime)s %(levelname)s %(message)s')
  file_handler.setFormatter(formatter)
  logger.addHandler(file_handler)
  return logger
 logger = setup_logger(logging.DEBUG)

 class my_script(controllers.BaseController):
  @expose_page(must_login=True, methods=['POST'])
  def my_endpoint(self, **kwargs):
   cherrypy.response.headers['Content-Type'] = 'application/json'

in python you will want to import json for handling json.

Here's how to use the json library: https://docs.python.org/2/library/json.html

I would not use cherrypy here though. cherrypy is deprecated in Splunk.

GIve this a read: https://conf.splunk.com/files/2016/slides/extending-splunks-rest-api-for-fun-and-profit.pdf

and refer to the github link at the end of the presentation for sample code.
