How can someone add a custom search command to the list that search help pops up?

I have already added a new custom search command as shown below:

In $Splunk_home/etc/system/bin I have the following script:

CustomCommand.py

In $Splunk_home/etc/system/local/commands.conf I have the following stanza:

[CustomCommand]
filename = CustomCommand.py

In $Splunk_home/etc/system/local/authorize.conf I have the following:

[[capability::run_script_CustomCommand]

[role_admin]
run_script_CustomCommand = enabled

You must add the following stanza in $Splunk_home/etc/system/local/searchbnf.conf

[CustomCommand-command]
syntax = CustomCommand <field>
description = This is a description of my CustomCommand
usage = public

Once this is added and splunk is restarted, the command should pop up in the search help when you are typing in your relevant search.

Also -- if you want to share your custom command across apps and have the help still work, you'll need to update the app's default.meta or local.meta to add an entry for searchbnf as follows:

[searchbnf]
export = system
Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?
