I am using REST API from python script and use the following link as an example

http://blogs.splunk.com/2011/08/02/splunk-rest-api-is-easy-to-use/comment-page-1/#comment-63962

But I am getting some error when i run this.
The Error in Step 3 is the following.

**====>sid: 1335953526.93 <====

/services/search/jobs/1335953526.93/

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “C:/Python2.7/Examples/diveintopython-examples-5.4/diveintopython-5.4/py/login_script.py”, line 67, in

isdonestatus = isdonestatus.search(searchstatus).groups()[0]

AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘groups’

**

And if I skip Step 3 and execute Step 4 i get the following "401 Unauthorized" error

e1e8a79b76386f63cf2e692562b52baf

====>sid: 1335953707.93 <====

====>search result: [401 Unauthorized.] <====

Can you help me resolve this?

This problem comes due to authentication problem. Once we set proper aothorization it gets resolved

The sid is returned properly in step 2 but the step 3 below fails
giving the error "AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘groups’"

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
