Google Modules loading error in Python plugin

Good morning to you all,

Today I am trying to collect the alert center alerts from Google and create investigations out of the in IDR.

Part of the workflow will be indeed an API call to app.alerts; the script is working as expected outside of ICON, so that is okay. However when I translate the script into something that ICON python plugin is able to deal with I get into some issues around the loading of modules.

The first of my Py script looks like this:

def run(params={}):
    from google_oauth2 import service_account
    from googleapiclient_discovery import build
    import requests
    from datetime import datetime, timedelta

The error I am getting is in relation to google_oauth2 that the module is not install. I believe that this module falls under the general google-auth module (, so I added that in the “create connection” part when choosing the PY plugin.

This is the outcome of the test:

rapid7/Python 3 Script:4.0.7. Step name: run
[*] Performing Python version check...
Python 3.9.18

[*] Installing user-specified dependencies (['google-auth', 'google-api-python-client'])...
[*] Dependencies installed!

This is the outcome when running the test:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 48, in <module>
  File "<string>", line 7, in run
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'google_auth'

Any help or insight is much appreciated!

Hey, try using import google.auth - it’s sneaky, it’s not an underline.

Thanks! The solutions can be so simple sometimes! @namorim
