I am using Python requests module in my Splunk app Python scripts. For third party ssl certificate, I am getting [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:676) issue because Splunk enterprise shipped with an older version of the requests module.
Is there any way to update Splunk's shipped request module from version 2.3.0 to a version greater than 2.9.
I've recently released a new app called PyDen on Splunkbase which lets a developer create Python virtual environments of varying versions (2.7, 3.5 - 3.7) that can be used to execute custom instead of the built-in Python Splunk uses. The app also provides the ability to install packages from PyPI to the environments, allowing you to use any versions and libraries you need to.
