Splunk Search

Is it possible to connect and send queries to Splunk from another application to retrieve results?

New Member


I am interested in the possibility of sending queries from an application (Lavastorm) to Splunk to retrieve results. I then want to process them and run some parallel queries.
The application supports ODBC. Is there a possibility to call Python or R scripts as well?

You can do this easily several ways. You can use the REST API on your search head or you can just use the CLI with scripting (go ahead and login to your Search Head CLI and try it). You will, however, have to hard-code a user/password into your code somewhere.
