splunk sdk for python : splunk.Intersplunk module not found

Contributor

Hi Splunk,

I'm getting an error after installing splunk sdk for python. The error is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./shelltest.py", line 4, in
import splunk.Intersplunk
ImportError: No module named splunk.Intersplunk

I can see the splunk.Intersplunk module in dir:
/apps/splunk/lib/python2.7/site-packages/splunk

The program is basic:

!/usr/bin/env python

import sys
import subprocess
import splunk.Intersplunk
cmdargs = str(sys.argv)
program_name = "/lm_tmp/yourscript.sh"
subprocess.call([program_name, cmdargs])

PYTHONPATH variable in .bash_profile is:
PYTHONPATH=/apps/splunk/etc/apps/splunk-sdk-python

NOTE, if i replace import splunk.Intersplunk with import splunklib the program runs without any issue.

Is there something wrong with python path? Anyone, been at it for awhile and currently stumped.

Thx

You need to use export PYTHONPATH so that this variable get passed to the child process called (to run program_name) in your script. Export PYTHONPATH instead just setting it in .bash_profile.

export PYTHONPATH=/apps/splunk/etc/apps/splunk-sdk-python
