App Packager - Exception: , Value: list index out of range

Communicator

Hi Team,

I'm attempting to package an app for an internal deployment.

I run the below command:

./splunk package app /Applications/Splunk/etc/apps/<my_app_name>/

I am then met with the below error:

An unforeseen error occurred:

    Exception: <type 'exceptions.IndexError'>, Value: list index out of range

This is a particularly enraging issue, as this worked perfectly fine yesterday, stopped working today and still does not work after a fresh install of Splunk Enterprise in my Dev environment.

Any suggestions?

I got this to work by doing the following:

/Applications/Splunk/bin/splunk package app <my_app_name>/

I would, however, still like to invite comment. I'd like to know what I was doing wrong so that I can avoid it in the future and not come up with solutions by rage-bashing XD

This didn't work for me, but I was able to get the following to work:

cd to SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps

SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk package app
