User facing messages

Because the Splunk Machine Learning Toolkit relies on a different python interpreter than the one shipped with Splunk Enterprise, there are a few things you might do differently to debug your code. The Splunk Machine Learning Toolkit comes with some utilities to make logging and user-facing errors easier to manage.

First, import and create a messages logger as follows:

from cexc import get_messages_logger
messages = get_messages_logger()

After that, you can add user facing messages quite easily as shown below:

some_variable = 'hello there'
messages.warn('Message of your choosing: {}'.format(some_variable))

This produces the search warning in the following example:


You can similarly produce error messages:

some_variable = 'hello there'
messages.error('Message of your choosing: {}'.format(some_variable))
