Splunk RestAPI Python script for geting search (https://www.splunk.com/blog/2011/08/02/splunk-rest-api-is-easy-to-use.html) not working

I am using below scripts provided in https://www.splunk.com/blog/2011/08/02/splunk-rest-api-is-easy-to-use.html .
I am searching some data out of it, this script is not capturing the sid in splunk jobs. this script is not working.

import urllib
import httplib2
import time
import re
from time import localtime,strftime
from xml.dom import minidom
import json

baseurl = 'https://localhost:8089'
username = 'admin'
password = 'changeme'

myhttp = httplib2.Http(disable_ssl_certificate_validation=True)

#Step 1: Get a session key

servercontent = myhttp.request(baseurl + '/services/auth/login', 'POST', headers={}, body=urllib.urlencode({'username':username, 'password':password}))[1]
sessionkey = minidom.parseString(servercontent).getElementsByTagName('sessionKey')[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue
print "====>sessionkey:  %s  <====" % sessionkey

#Step 2: Create a search job

searchquery = 'index="_internal" | head 10'
if not searchquery.startswith('search'):
    searchquery = 'search ' + searchquery

searchjob = myhttp.request(baseurl + '/services/search/jobs','POST',headers={'Authorization': 'Splunk %s' % sessionkey},body=urllib.urlencode({'search': searchquery}))[1]
sid = minidom.parseString(searchjob).getElementsByTagName('sid')[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue
print "====>sid:  %s  <====" % sid

#Step 3: Get the search status

myhttp.add_credentials(username, password)
servicessearchstatusstr = '/services/search/jobs/%s/' % sid


isnotdone = True
while isnotdone:
    searchstatus = myhttp.request(baseurl + servicessearchstatusstr, 'GET')[1]
    isdonestatus = re.compile('isDone">(0|1)')
    isdonestatus = isdonestatus.search(searchstatus).groups()[0]
    if (isdonestatus == '1'):
        isnotdone = False
print "====>search status:  %s  <====" % isdonestatus

#Step 4: Get the search results

services_search_results_str = '/services/search/jobs/%s/results?output_mode=json&count=0' % sid
searchresults = myhttp.request(baseurl + services_search_results_str, 'GET')[1]
print "====>search result:  [%s]  <====" % searchresults
