Splunk App for AWS: Why am I getting a "Missing Required Arguments" error trying to configure a Kinesis input?

Explorer

I have a user created and have successfully set up inputs for S3 & CloudWatch Logs and am attempting to use the UI to create a AWS Kinesis Input. The account, region, and stream name are all available via drop-down which I set, as well as the "gzip" encoding type, and initial stream position (TRIM_HORIZON). When I hit create however I get the following error:

The following required arguments are missing: app_name, aws_access_key_id, aws_secret_access_key, initial_stream_position, output_type, stream_name.

Has anyone else encountered this when setting up a Kinesis input?

Did you configure it from AWS Addon GUI?

Yep, via "Inputs > Create new Input> Kinesis"
