I am trying to write my first Splunk Application Framework app . However I am running into trouble when it comes to the python code associated with my custom module. The problem seems to originate in an import :
"import splunklib.client as client"
Looking into web_service.log I can see the following lines :
2013-09-29 11:10:02,743 ERROR [5247e059c217902b0] root:555 - Unable to start splunkweb
2013-09-29 11:10:02,743 ERROR [5247e059c217902b0] root:556 - No module named splunklib.client
ImportError: No module named splunklib.client
Since splunklib is a part of the Python SDK and the Python SDK is available on the Application Framework I thought it would be straightforward to access it . What am I missing here ? How would someone proceed in order to employ the Python SDK in his app ?
