Splunk Search

Translate splunk data to json using cli search?


I have a splunk container running on docker, and was hoping to translate the splunk index data into json using a cli search and saving the output as a local file. How to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Maybe you can clarify "translate the splunk index data."  Do you mean to dump raw Splunk data into JSON?  How is that useful?

In any case, you can always use tojson command after any search you do.  For example,

splunk search "index=_* earliest=-4h |stats count by index |tojson" >count.json
