Splunk Google cloud platform add-on 3.0.2 input fails with exception for 7.2.3


Hi all

Splunk Google add-on 3.0.2 input fails with exception for 7.2.3

the docs state that the add-on is supported for 7.2.3:

We have a case open, but splunk state upgrading to python 3?

however in server.conf  of 7.2.3 there is no option in the spec file to add the python switch. 

So even if we install python 3 , how do we force splunk to use it?( alternatively if will mean having to test other add-ons for compatibility also , there is the migration app I am aware.)
below setting is not available in 7.2.3  spec , it is quoted in 8.x

python.version = {python2|python3|force_python3}
* For Python scripts only, sets the default Python version to use.
* Can be overridden b

Sample of errors for inputs.

Wondering if anyone had had similar experience..

note that the migration tool in the app fails due to future package not being available ( that is a separate issue..) it needs the future package of python 3
