Hi all, 

 

I'm a very new splunk user so am learning as i go - i simply want to connect splunk enterprise to this api:https://api.beta.ons.gov.uk/v1  and start interrogating the data.

 

I have installed splunk_app_db_connect and am following this guidance

https://www.progress.com/tutorials/jdbc/connect-to-any-rest-api-from-splunk-enterprise

 

But am getting an error 

Unable to initialize modular input "server" defined in the app "splunk_app_db_connect": Introspecting scheme=server: script running failed (exited with code 1)..

 

and looking at the log file I am getting this : 

2021-07-16T12:07:42+0100 [WARNING] [settings.py], line 107: java home auto detection failed

 

I'm struggling to understand what else to tweak to resolve as its a desktop version of splunk and i can't see any other apps i am meant to have running in the background.

 

any ideas? or is there a better app to use to ingest api data
