Splunk Add-on for ServiceNow: Why am I getting error "Failed to get service_now.conf" after setup in Splunk 6.2.2?

Explorer

I installed the Splunk Add-on for ServiceNow SplunkTAsnow and followed these steps:

Set up the add-on using servicenow.conf
Follow these steps to set up the add-on using service
now.conf.

  1. Go to $SPLUNKHOME/etc/apps/SplunkTA_snow and make a new directory called /local.

  2. Copy SplunkTAsnow/default/servicenow.conf to $SPLUNKHOME/etc/apps/SplunkTAsnow/local.

  3. Configure the values according to the table, then save the local version of the file.

After restarting the Search Head, I am seeing this error in the ta_snow.log:

that sounds like a systems level permission problem.

Were you able to resolve this issue. I am facing similar kind of problem. We use a proxy to connect to the Internet (ServiceNow).

Its actually due to the permission settings in the ServiceNow. I am able to access ServiceNow once the permission is modified there.
