Python script to clock error on splunkd.log only success message to index



I need help in indexing only success response in Splunk and the failure response like error/authentication failed/host down are in splunkd.log

Please help me in python script to index the failed message in log file.

Below is the script:


import requests
import json
import urllib
import sys 
import os


        "accept": "application/json",
        "content-type": "application/json"
Input_URL= ['https://{host}.com/apigee/files/data'.format(host=host)]

def return_json(url):
        response = requests.get(url,headers=headers)		

           if not response.status_code // 100 == 2:
            return "ERROR: Unexpected response {}".format(response)
        json_obj = response.json()
        return json.dumps(json_obj)
    except requests.exceptions.RequestException as e:
                return "ERROR: {}".format(e)
for url in Input_URL:
    print return_json(url)

Are you already running that script outside the Splunk environment? If so you might want to take a look at sending the result via HEC (https://www.splunk.com/en_us/blog/customers/http-event-collect-a-python-class.html)

If not, you could use that code a base for an input by creating an Add-on with the Splunk Add-On Builder (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2962/)
