That is not supported at the moment, sorry. The current implementation
does not support any kind of automatic notification upon changes.

There also is no direct way to do this - you have to trigger the command
within Bro. If you want to trigger it in a python script, you have to send
a notification to Bro that it should execute Input::force_update. The
easiest way to do that probably is to use Broker (the new bro
communication library) in python, send an event to Bro, catch that event
in the master, and let that event call force_update.

I hope this helps,
