Please try the below

 import splunklib.client as client

    class RestController():
        HOST = "localhose"
        PORT = 8089
        USERNAME = "userName"
        PASSWORD = "password"

        currentUser =""


        def getService(self):        
            return client.connect(host=self.HOST,port=self.PORT,username=self.USERNAME,password=self.PASSWORD)


    mani = RestController()
    service = mani.getService()
    users = service.users
    for user in users:
        print user.name
