Hey All, I have a Splunk search that sends 50 Splunk Events into 1 Phantom container with 50 artifacts (one for each Splunk Event). However, the playbook kicks off for each artifact created, is there a way to pass the run_automation flag as False when running my search?
You can give a custom python script in the Rest API app, which creates container in phantom. Here is the pseudo code:
# Acquire some container/artifact data to post
container = get_container()
artifacts = get_artifact_list_for_container(container)
# post your container
# Set run_automation to false on all but the last one
for artifact in artifacts[:-1]:
artifact["run_automation"] = False
From my understanding, this is not possible but it happens because when it needs to trigger a playbook, it spots a time difference between artifact 1's creation and e.g. artifact 5's so it causes another trigger.
If you use event forwarding, it will not separate them into multiple artifacts, like "send to phantom" does for multi-value fields. This would stop it running multiple times but would then need a custom function in a playbook to separate again with the run_automation flag set to false.
I would be interested in knowing a way around this if in the time this question has been up, you've found a solution 🙂
