Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Office 365 - failed to parse URL for IPv6


Hi all,

In Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Office 365 (4.2.1) on Splunk Enterprise 9, we got problem when configuring it on a Splunk instance with IPv6 enabled:

2022-12-29 16:04:38,155 level=ERROR pid=2704844 tid=MainThread logger=splunk_ta_o365.modinputs.management_activity | datainput=b'Staff_Management_Activity_AzureAD' start_time=1672301078 | message="Data input was interrupted by an unhandled exception."
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/splunk_ta_o365/lib/requests/", line 434, in prepare_url
scheme, auth, host, port, path, query, fragment = parse_url(url)
File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/splunk_ta_o365/lib/urllib3/util/", line 397, in parse_url
return six.raise_from(LocationParseError(source_url), None)
File "<string>", line 3, in raise_from
urllib3.exceptions.LocationParseError: Failed to parse: https://::1:8089/servicesNS/nobody/splunk_ta_o365/configs/conf-inputs/splunk_ta_o365_management_acti...

Seems the localhost resolves to ::1 instead of [::1].    There is no problem if the host doesn't have IPv6 enabled.

Would anyone please help?

Thanks and Regards
