Add user with python SDK

Path Finder

Hi, i'm learning Python SDK and i'm try to create a new user, with this code:

users = service.users
new_user = users.create("my user", "empty password", roles="basic_user", type="Splunk")

but i get this error:

raise HTTPError(response)
splunklib.binding.HTTPError: HTTP 400 Bad Request --
In handler 'users': Argument "type" is not supported by this handler.

How to pass the auth type to the class Users? i try in different way, but no one works.

In general, when in api reference i found something like this:

params (dict) – Additional arguments (optional). For a list of available parameters, see User authentication parameters on Splunk Developer Portal.

In which format i have to pass param?

Thanks in advance and regards.

P.S.

I'm trying also:

users = service.users
kwargs = {"type": "Splunk"}
new_user = users.create("wu", "test", roles="user", **kwargs)

But i get the same error

P.P.S.

Ok, this last method is correct, i tried with

kwargs = {"realname": "Some Name"}

and it works. So how can i pass the authetication method to this class?
