Monitoring Splunk

Incorrect Path to Script, but Path doesn't exist

Path Finder

I'm trying to bring in new data to my Splunk standalone and getting this error in the _internal logs
Incorrect path to script: /Applications/Splunk/etc/apps/my_app/local/bin/run_it.sh. Script must be located inside $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/scripts.
Only thing is, the path to script the log shows, doesn't exist. The path in the log has /my_app/local/bin/run_it.sh but I've triple checked and my bin folder in my app is under /my_app/bin/run_it.sh. There is no bin folder under the local directory that it appears to be referencing.
Is there something that I am missing when trying to get this data in?

Thanks in advance

Hello @wwhite12

Place the bin outside the local directory.

The run_it.sh script should be located inside the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/my_app/bin/ for Splunk to be able to run it.

If bin is not existing, you just have to create it and place the script inside with atleast a chmod u+x run_it.sh permission.

Hope it helps!

As said in my initial question, the run_it.sh script has been located in the /my_app/bin/ directory from the beginning. I've also given it the proper permissions.

Apologies as I got confused on the wordings, here it is:

Incorrect path: /Applications/Splunk/etc/apps/my_app/local/bin/run_it.sh
Your script location: /Applications/Splunk/etc/apps/my_app/bin/run_it.sh

Have you tried running the commands below already for checking?

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/./splunk list monitor
$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/./splunk cmd btool check
$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/./splunk cmd btool check --debug
