Python Function - No module found named "SQLAlschemy"

I am using DO Functions and everything seemed to be working perfectly. However, I am now trying to build a function that uses SQLAlschemy library but it is always giving me the error that no module called SQLAlschemy found.

I have deployed functions before with pymongo for example and it worked. No idea why this one in specific with SQLAlschemy is not working

any help or hints?

Hi there,

As far as I can tell from the error message, you seem to have a typo in the package name.

The correct package name is: SQLAlchemy. You can verify this on the PyPi site:

In the error message that you’ve shared, you seem to have an extra s in the package name: SQLAlschemy.

Let me know how it goes once you fix the typo.
