How to search with the metadata command using the Python API?

Hi ,

I am not sure how to use the metadata command using the Python API as it is required to be the first command like | metadata type=hosts, but when we use the Python API every search has to be appended by search like search index=abc.

In case of metadata, if I use search metadata type=hosts or search | metadata type=hosts, none of them are working.

Any ideas how to use it?

It turns out that while using metadata command over API, we do not require search command as a prefix.

Try this as the search query

search index=_internal | head 1 | map maxsearches=1 "| metadata type=hosts"
