I want to upgrade Python 2.7 to Python 3.7 to work with Splunk Enterprise 8.1 version. Can someone please guide me through the migration path of python?
as @richgalloway said, Splunk 8.x has both Python 2.7 and Python 3.7.
It's also avalilable an app to check your apps before migration to Splunk Readiness App (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/4698/) and in Splunk 8.2 there's an app called Python Readiness App ( https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/5483/) that guides you to the migration.
Anyway in Splunk 8.x you can use both the versions, but version 2.x is deprecated so soon will be in phase-out.
if you install Spunk 8 without any option, Splunk continue to use Python 2.7, but you can force python 3.7 adding a parameter in server.conf
You can find morte infos at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.0/Installation/PlanPython3
Splunk comes with both Python 2.7 and Python 3.7, at least for now, so you don't have to do anything to install Python 3. Support for Python 2 will be dropped soon, however.
You do need to make sure any Python code in your apps support both Python 2 and Python 3. As mentioned in your posting on this topic, the Splunk Upgrade Readiness app can help you modify your code.
@richgalloway does Splunk enterprise 8.1.X also supports python 2.7?
