Developing for Splunk Enterprise

Why is the Python script input data show no result in search?

New Member

I have a python scripted input which doesn't return any result in the search and I don't understand why because I can run my script in the terminal computer with the user splunk:

splunk@splunk1:~/etc/apps/bike_sharing/bin$ python

extract of the result:

[{"FCTTIME":1524250800000,"conds":"Clear","dewptm":"-5","fctcode":1,"feelslike":"5","heatindex":"-9999","hum":39,"icon":"clear","mslp":"1023","pop":0,"qpf":"0","sky":11,"snow":"0","tempm":"8","uvi":0,"wdir":"NW","windchill":"5","wspd":"19","TZ":7200000,"dock_id":"3681","capacity":0,"eightd_has_key_dispenser":false,"eightd_station_services":null,"lat":40.7151776773,"lon":-74.0376833081,"name":"Grand St","region_id":null,"rental_methods":["KEY","CREDITCARD"],"short_name":"JC102"}]

@csimonnet, to debug can you please try the following link to write error logs to Splunk's _internal index using sys.stderror.write to ensure that Script is executing?

sys.stderr.write("Python script is starting up\n") 

Refer to a recent answer, have you scheduled your Python scripted input in Splunk?

now I can see a new error:
import pandas as pd
File "/opt/splunk/etc/apps/Splunk_SA_Scientific_Python_linux_x86_64/bin/linux_x86_64/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pandas/", line 13, in
"extensions first.".format(module))
ImportError: C extension: No module named ctypes not built. If you want to import pandas from the source directory, you may need to run 'python build_ext --inplace' to build the C extensions first.

I tried to fix it but I can't install ctypes and upgrading numpy doesn't change anything.
