Splunk Addon builder - How do I Update a stanza value after config?


As part of an TA that I am building, I have a requirement to change a few of the values in /apps/my_app/local/inputs.conf during the code run time .

Scenario: My code will retrieve an oauth2_access_token and oauth2_refresh_token every hour and this needs to be updated in the inputs.conf.
Any insight on how to achieve this?

As far as I have checked, no helper functions exist for the same. 

An alternative would be to keep another file somewhere inside the TA's directory to keep the latest values for these tokens. But is there a way we could get the actual app directory path from the script? using os.get_cwd is giving me the path : "/". Is this only during testing and it will change accordingly during the actual run ?
