Splunk Search

Why is there error when trying to get data from REST API using Python script?

Path Finder

I'm trying to get data by registering it as a Splunk script using Python code.

But the problem only occurs when I run this code in Splunk.

When I run it directly in Splunk Python locally, there is no problem,



but when I run it from Splunk, I get the following error.



The error contents are as follows.

Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 8] nodename nor servname provided, or not known


So I searched and tried using http scheme and requests.get(verift=false), but the same error occurs.

There is no error when I run it locally, so it seems to be a problem when sending a request from Splunk.



If anyone knows, I'd appreciate any help.



import requests as req
import json

def tmdb_api_call(requestURL, parameters):
    response = req.get(url=requestURL, params=parameters)
    if response.status_code != 200:
    data = response.json()
    return json.dumps(data)

def get_upcoming_movies_by_page(api_key, page_number=1):
    requestURL = "http://api.themoviedb.org/3/movie/upcoming"
    parameters = {"api_key": api_key, "page": page_number}
    return tmdb_api_call(requestURL, parameters)

def main():
    api_key = "key"
    upcoming_movie_list = get_upcoming_movies_by_page(api_key, 1)
    data = json.loads(upcoming_movie_list)

@munang What is your setup in Splunk and how do you call the script?
