Splunk Search

Create Search using REST/JSON

I can successfully create a search job with the help of the docs using a Curl command:

curl -u "userName" -k https://host:port/services/search/jobs -d search="encodedSearchQuery"

I get back the SID as expected:

<response>
<sid>1234567890.123456</sid>
</response>

 

When I try to translate this search to a REST Call with JSON body I cannot get it to work. For example if I use postman:

POST

https://host:port/services/search/jobs/

Request Body (JSON)

{
"search": "encodedSearchQuery"
}

 

I get a 200 but no Search job created or SID returned.

 

Any tips to get this working?

Thanks

Seems I had to post the data as Key Value pairs using Content Type application/x-www-form-urlencoded rather than a JSON request body.
