It seems Instagram has made changes to their API which causes this app to not function properly.
Any takers on re-writing the REST api modular input to work with these changes?
Hi irina [Splunk],
taken from the Apps https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2656/#/documentation documentation page:
5.Install the dependent REST API Modular Input app"
Copy the folder SPLUNK HOME/etc/apps/instagram/install/rest_ta to SPLUNK HOME/etc/apps/ . This will install the official REST API modular input created by Damien Dallimore that is used for connecting to the Instagram API. This version of rest_ta includes some custom python response handlers to handle the Instagram API json format. These are not included in the REST API Modular input app that can be found on Splunkbase.
Hope this helps ...
It semi worked for me 🙂 At least Instagram is now complaining :
06-13-2016 15:20:38.939 +1200 ERROR ExecProcessor - message from "python /opt/splunk/etc/apps/TAInstagram/bin/instagram.py" ERROR:root:HTTP Request error: 400 Client Error: BAD REQUEST
Had do to some re-writing of the script do get there...keep you updated.
Did you had success ?
The install for the Instagram app requires that you add some REST inputs in the Data Inputs section - and unfortunately REST does not seem to be an option under Data Inputs for me in 6.4.1
