Alerting

Use a Python module in a custom alert action

I have a custom alert action that I wrote using the manual on the documentation:

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.3.1/AdvancedDev/ModAlertsIntro

I need to import a Python module (boto3) into my action's script.

How can I do that?
Where and how do I install the module?

Hi eden881,

you can download the module directory or use a python egg of the module, place it in the bin directory of your app (assuming you created your alert action in a seperate app) and use import boto3 at top of your script. That should import the module if all module dependencies are fulfilled.

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS
