Splunk Search

How to run a saved search in a remote Splunk server and print the result on the terminal using Python SDK?

Path Finder

I wanted to make some script that will run saved search in remote Splunk Server and print the result on the terminal/console. I found that example: http://dev.splunk.com/view/python-sdk/SP-CAAAEK2 , but it looks like some part of code is missing. I also tried to connect that example with examples included in SDK Python (oneshot.py), but still it doesn't want to work for me.

Do you have any simple solution to run saved search in remote Splunk Server and print it in terminal?

If you want to use python SDK, there is no difference between running a search locally and remotely. They both use the REST interface to run the search. One thing to be aware of is 'admin' 'changeme' will not work remotely, because this is insecure. Be sure you are using an account without a default password.
