Splunk Search

Is it possible to call Splunk RestAPI with request in JSON?


Hello all,

is it possible to call Splunk RestAPI with request in JSON.

I am trying in SOAP UI software, media Type = application/json

And when request is inputed as string:
search=search index=myindex |head 5

I get valid response

But when I try request in json format
{"search": "search index=myindex |head 5"}

I get response:
{"messages": [{
"type": "FATAL",
"text": "Empty search."

Tried also following requests:
{"search": "index=myindex |head 5"}
{"search": search index=myindex |head 5}
{"body": {"search": "search index=myindex |head 5"}}
