Can't import Python modules

 I am attempting to run a group of automated tests with Pytest. I receive a ModuleNotFoundError that prevents me from importing other python modules. 
What do I need to do in order to make the module import?



Most likely the issue is with your environment. Please open python console and post the output of:

    import sys



You can also try to change the import statement in your code

    import tests.gateway_alpha_login



I went through those steps and this is the result.

['/Users/jordonpeterson/Library/Application Support/IntelliJIdea2018.3/python/helpers/pydev', '/Users/jordonpeterson/Library/Application Support/IntelliJIdea2018.3/python/helpers/third_party/thriftpy', '/Users/jordonpeterson/Library/Application Support/IntelliJIdea2018.3/python/helpers/pydev', '/usr/local/Cellar/python/3.7.1/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.7/lib/', '/usr/local/Cellar/python/3.7.1/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.7/lib/python3.7', '/usr/local/Cellar/python/3.7.1/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.7/lib/python3.7/lib-dynload', '/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages', '/Users/jordonpeterson/Library/Application Support/IntelliJIdea2018.3/python/helpers/pycharm_matplotlib_backend', '/Users/jordonpeterson/code/gateway_tests']


Directory '/Users/jordonpeterson/code/gateway_tests' is in your sys.path, so importing the module with `import tests.gateway_alpha_login` instead of `import gateway_alpha_login` should work. Have you tried this?


If this is not working, you can add directory ''/Users/jordonpeterson/code/gateway_tests/tests' to the PYTHONPATH variable in your run configuration. Open the run/debug configuration and create environment variable PYTHONPATH with the value '/Users/jordonpeterson/code/gateway_tests/tests'.

Ensure that checkboxes "Add content roots to PYTHONPATH" and "Add source roots to PYTHONPATH" are enabled.

This way the interpreter should know where to look for the module.
