Error "get_file_data() got an unexpected keyword argument 'file_filter'"

I have configured one input using the File-Meta Data input to monitor a log file. But I am getting below error in the file_meta_data_modular_input.log file

2018-10-25 08:03:20,519 ERROR Execution failed

Any idea? I have installed the app on the SH.

I tested this and the app works. Could you ensure that:

  1. You have version 1.4 installed?
  2. $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk-file-info/src/bin/file_meta_data.py contains the following line:

            WildcardField("file_filter", "File Name Filter",
                         "A wildcard for which files will be included",
                         none_allowed=True, empty_allowed=True)
            ]

I have the PY file at below path on my system

$SPLUNK_HOME\etc\apps\file_meta_data\bin

App name is file_meta_data and not splunk-file-info. Did I downloaded and installed wrong app version?

This looks like a bug to me. It might be a regression from the most recent update (1.4). I'm investigating this and will get an update posted ASAP. I'm looking into the error in this ticket: https://lukemurphey.net/issues/2301

Update:
I don't believe this is a bug after all. I am unable to reproduce the issue and a survey of the code makes me think it ought to work. Furthermore, all unit tests pass.

I suspect not all of the files got copied in the install.

I am also getting below error

My inputs.conf is as below

file_path = F:\StartingPoint\Splunk
include_file_hash = 0
index = main
interval = 5m
