Splunk Search

How can I get CLI searches to appear in the Job Manager?

It looks like the Job Manager currently does not allow me to track CLI searches. Is there some way I can get a jobid assigned to my CLI searches?

By default, even CLI-initiated searches are assigned a Job id. Unfortunately, these disappear immediately upcome completion of the search run. To make the Job id persist you can add '-detach true' to your search:

[/opt/splunk/bin] ./splunk search "search terms" -maxout 100000 -detach true

Job id: 1277828645.277
