Getting data in Splunk through REST API in case of two step connection


Hello,I am trying to connect App to get data in Splunk using REST API. The issue is that REST API request need to be implemented in 2 steps.

Send POST request to get the token (valid for 24 hrs)

Send GET request to fetch the results using token from first request.

I am able to implement two separate requests. But looking to automate this process. My idea is to write a script which will periodically copy the token values to input configuration file.

FYI:I have used Rest API Modular input app for these request.

Problems: Splunk Server is on windows. Using Rest API Modular Input App, It sending token results directly to Splunk server not sure how to get that on windows machine. If its linux I would have write a bash script which use curl to fetch token value and paste it to input configuration. Not sure how to perform this on windows.
