I followed the README for installation. When I used httpget command from search bar, I got following error.
command="httpget", Error : Traceback: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/opt/splunk/etc/system/bin/httpget.py", line 26, in <module> conn.close() NameError: name 'conn' is not defined
Is there anything I need to do for this to make this work?
I am running Splunk5.0.1.
[Added for ndoshi's answer]
I checked with new one, and followed README again.
(1) FILENAME in commands.conf should be in lower case.
Possible typo in stanza [httpget] in /Users/mhyugaji/Desktop/spl_instance/splunk/etc/system/local/commands.conf, line 2: FILENAME = httpget.py
* It is working though.
(2) If url field has "http://" in front of URL, no good.
(Not working and get error)
* | head 1 | eval url="http://www.splunk.com" | httpget | table url httpget
(Not working and no error)
* | head 1 | eval url="http://www.splunk.com:80" | httpget | table url httpget
so, my url fields sometimes has "http://", so I will apply httpget command after removing http://.
Did you follow instructions (README.txt) to create entries in commands.conf and authorize.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local? You must have if Splunk is not complaining about not finding the command. What is the URL you are trying to test?
If it's not a public URL, can you follow the instructions to index the sample log file that comes with the distribution to test with the URL's in this file to see if that works? I just tested it in Splunk 5 and it worked with the sample. I also had an index called sample. Here's my search:
index="sample" sourcetype="sampleurl"|dedup myurl|eval url=myurl|httpget|table url,httpget
There was a typo in my inputs.conf and I just uploaded a new httpget_command on Splunkbase for this typo.
