Splunk Azure Monitor add-on installation issues ?


Hi All, I am trying to monitor the Azure activity logs, diagnostic logs and Metrics logs, when googled I came across Splunk Azure Monitor add-on and documents related to the add-on and Azure configuration was found. Based on the steps mentioned in the documents, I had configured the Prerequisites in Azure side. Similarly in Splunk side when I was trying to install the add-on, splunk was throwing an error

Unable to initialize modular input "azure_monitor_metrics" defined in the app "AzureMonitorAddonForSplunk-1.3.2": Introspecting scheme=azure_monitor_metrics: script running failed (exited with code 1)..

To fix this, followed the below steps mentioned in this link, as per this when I was trying to fix the python dependency the system was throwing this error, could you please guide me to fix this issue.
