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

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.
