Is there any way the Splunk App for Instagram could be updated for 6.4.x or any sort of workaround?

I'm trying to make the Splunk App for Instagram (created for 6.2) work with 6.4.1 - running into some issues. Is there any way the App could be updated for 6.4 or any sort of workaround?

It seems Instagram has made changes to their API which causes this app to not function properly.

https://www.instagram.com/developer/changelog/

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 ...

cheers, MuS

Hi, MuS, unfortunately I did do that as part of the install process and it does not work. Thank you though!

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

I may have fixed this by reinstalling Damien's REST API app... testing it out.
