How to make splunklib compatible with Python 3?

Hello,

I am coding a custom command and I am using splunklib to interact with Splunk SDK.

I am also using the Splunk Platform Upgrade Readiness App that allows me to spot if my code is compatible with Python 3.

My issue is that this app tells me that some python files in the splunklib are only compatible with Python 2 runtime. I've updated the Splunklib to the very latest release...

You can see the result of the app scaning below:splunklibpython2.jpg

Is this normal ? is there a way to make it compatible with Python 3?

Hi @davietch we have confirmed that splunklib is Python 3 compatible and that these Warnings are erroneous. Until the Splunk Platform Upgrade Readiness App is updated to prevent these Warnings they can be safely ignored, thanks for bringing this to our attention.
