Developing for Splunk Enterprise

When I am using a Python scripted input is this the path I should use?

Builder

All,

First time doing a Python scripted input. For portabability should I be using the local Python on Splunk in my scripted input headers? Or the OS's Python install?

#!/opt/splunk/bin/python

print "hello world"

Or should I point to the specific version as well?

#!/opt/splunk/bin/python2.7

print "hello world"

Splunk will use it's own python version no matter what you put in your headers.

If you for some reason (e.g. using Python 3) want to avoid this, you would have to ship a wrapper shell script that would use a system installed python executable to run the actual Python script - else Splunk will handle it.
