When trying to save a scripted input on my search head, why am I getting error "In handler 'script': The file...does not exist"?

I have a script located on my search head in /opt/splunk/bin/scripts/pull_data_to_splunk.py

I can execute the script manually in my search head. Here is the actual command:

python pull_data_into_splunk.py -api_key="my api key' -secret_key="mysecretcode' -url=myserver.abc.org -node_group_id=79

From the GUI, I go to Settings/Data Inputs/Scripts/Add New and when I try to save, I get this error:

Encountered the following error while trying to save: In handler 'script': The file "/opt/splunk/bin/scripts/python" does not exist.

IN the command field, what is the correct syntax?

Don't include "python". Just put in the name of your script.

no dice....I have a script in the following location:

/opt/splunk/bin/scripts/pulldatato_splunk.py

When I try to save the Data Inputs/Scripts/Add new

I have the added in the command field:
/opt/splunk/bin/scripts/pulldatato_splunk.py

When I try to save I get "Encountered the following error while trying to save: In handler 'script': The file "/opt/splunk/bin/scripts/pulldataintosplunkno_args.py" does not exist."

Did you put the no args script in /opt/splunk/bin/scripts as well (pulldataintosplunkno_args.py)?

Output: Encountered the following error while trying to save: In handler 'script': The file "/opt/splunk/bin/scripts/pulldatainto_splunk.py" does not exist.

Here is what I have in the command field:

opt/splunk/bin/scripts/python pulldataintosplunk.py -apikey="my api key' -secretkey="mysecretcode' -url=myserver.abc.org -nodegroup_id=79

Am I missing quotes?

the example shown on the setup wizard - On Unix: /opt/splunk/bin/scripts/getData.sh foo "bar baz"
