I am trying to use an external script (python) to retrieve data from a database (sqlite3) which is to be summarized within a dashboard. The python script is within a wrapper. command.conf in /default is detailed below. script is in the /bin dir. Runnning "|dumpTS" with the app search, I get "Unknown search command 'dumpts'." The script takes no input and returns column headers (csv delimited) and the associated rows of csv formatted data. Any ideas?

commands.conf

[dumpTS]

filename = dumpTS.py

generating = true

local = true

maxinputs = 0

I'm on 6.4.4 making a custom generating command and this just helped me. Have to make [commandstanza] all lowercase.
