Import Python Module when creating a new Splunk App

New Member


I am trying to create a new app which requires a python module not included in Splunk. I read somewhere that you can copy the modules and dependencies to the etc/apps/app/bin. When I do that and try to just import the module I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/TA-limac/bin/", line 14, in
import input_module_lc_pythontest_1563939006_862 as input_module

import_c_accel(globals(), 'gevent.
File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/TA-limac/bin/gevent/", line 105, in import_c_accel
mod = importlib.import_module(cname)
File "/opt/splunk/lib/python2.7/importlib/", line 37, in import_module
ImportError: /opt/splunk/etc/apps/TA-limac/bin/gevent/ undefined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_DecodeUTF8

Has anyone gotten this before or know a different way to create this app while still using the python module?

Did you find a solution to this? Experiencing the same thing while building out a custom search command and attempting to use gevent/grequests
