Splunk Add-on for Amazon Web Services: Why am I getting error "Invalid SQS Queue Name" setting up a cloudtrail input?



I'm hoping this issue is a simple oversight on my part. I've gotten the Splunk Add-on for Amazon Web Services configured and I'm now trying to set up my first cloudtrail input. I go through all the selection boxes and the app populates the list of SQS queues in each region fine, but when I go to click Next, it throws the following error:

Encountered the following error while trying to save: In handler 'aws_cloudtrail': Invalid SQS Queue Name: myQueue

I checked the logs and the only entry is in splunkd.log:

04-28-2015 17:18:52.219 +0000 WARN  ModularInputs - Validation for scheme=aws_cloudtrail failed: Invalid SQS Queue Name: myQueue
04-28-2015 17:18:52.219 +0000 INFO  ModularInputs - Invalid SQS Queue Name: myQueue

What's confusing me is that the Add-on is the one pulling the info from SQS, so there shouldn't be an issue regarding the name. I've double checked all the SQS permissions mentioned in the documentation and they're all there. Any ideas?

hi, try debug logging? Maybe you've got list permissions but not read?
