Module import failed in python



hi team im trying to integrate postgresql with stackstorm and establishing connection using python but im unable to import psycopg2
my code is executing in python but in stackstorm I’m getting the following error


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/stackstorm/st2/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/st2common/runners/", line 216, in _get_action_instance
    actions_cls = action_loader.register_plugin(Action, self._file_path)
  File "/opt/stackstorm/st2/lib/python2.7/site-packages/st2common/util/", line 165, in register_plugin
    module = imp.load_source(module_name, plugin_abs_file_path)
  File "/opt/stackstorm/packs/postgres/actions/", line 1, in <module>
    import psycopg2
ImportError: No module named psycopg2 

I have tried installing psycopg2 it got installed successfully but still I’m facing the same error

You’ll need to install that dependency in your pack’s virtualenv:

source /opt/stackstorm/virtualenv/<pack_name>/bin/activate
pip install pyscopg2

Ideally you should place this dependency in your pack’s requirements.txt file so that it’s installed in your virtualenv in the future: Create and Contribute a Pack — StackStorm 2.6.0 documentation



I went to this path /opt/stackstorm/virtualenv/<pack_name>/bin/
and found activate file next i have tried running this command but I’m getting this

Collecting pyscopg2

@cristi how would you normally install that package in a Python virtualenv? Looks like you need to do it a little differently - see


@nmaludy @lhill Thank you its working :slight_smile:
