Extending Splunk’s search language with custom search commands.

I recently blogged on a feature which I worked on, custom search commands for Splunk in our Python SDK. Custom search commands allow you to extend Splunk’s search language with new commands that can do things like apply custom filtering, perform complex mathematical calculations not in the box, or generate events dynamically from an external data source like an external API. Currently we only support them in Python but we’ll be adding more languages in the future.

In the first post of the series I talk about how to build a simple generating command.
