Python script - module urllib.request error

Explorer

I'm experiencing issue running python script as trigger action.

I got error from urllib.request module:

x = urllib.request.urlopen('https://www.google.com/')
File "/opt/splunk/lib/python3.7/urllib/request.py", line 222, in urlopen
return opener.open(url, data, timeout)
File "/opt/splunk/lib/python3.7/urllib/request.py", line 525, in open
response = self._open(req, data)
File "/opt/splunk/lib/python3.7/urllib/request.py", line 548, in _open
'unknown_open', req)
File "/opt/splunk/lib/python3.7/urllib/request.py", line 503, in _call_chain
result = func(*args)
File "/opt/splunk/lib/python3.7/urllib/request.py", line 1387, in unknown_open
raise URLError('unknown url type: %s' % type)
urllib.error.URLError: <urlopen error unknown url type: https>

 

If I run script from Python in OS it works.

Any idea?

Thanks

When you run the script in the OS, are you using the Splunk environment?

splunk cmd python ...

No,

I'm using

#python3 myscript.py

running

#/opt/splunk/bin/python3.7 myscript.py

doesn't work

Running the script using the instance of Python supplied by the OS is not a good test because it may not match the version supplied by Splunk and will not have the same libraries.
