Developing for Splunk Enterprise

Getting errors when running in Splunk Python SDK.


We use Splunk cloud and I'm trying to figure out how to use the Splunk Python SDK but I'm stuck on the first example. When I first ran, I got the error:

NameError: name 'six' is not defined
Which I fixed by adding "as six" to "import splunklib.six.moves.http_client"

Now I'm stuck, getting the following when I enter python

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 30, in 
connection = six.moves.http_client.HTTPSConnection(HOST, PORT)
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'moves

Any thoughts?

Thank you.

OK, this turned out to be a silly oversight. I had changed the "import" line, but then hadn't changed the actual connection definition is line 30 from:
connection = six.moves.http_client.HTTPSConnection(HOST, PORT)
connection = six.HTTPSConnection(HOST, PORT)

Now that error is solved but I still can't seem to get connected via Python. I'm thinking I need to have greater permissions maybe? Here's the new traceback:
