Annotell Authentication

Project description

Annotell Authentication

Python 3 library providing foundations for Annotell Authentication on top of the requests library.

Builds on the standard Oauth 2.0 Client Credentials flow. There are a few ways to provide auth credentials to our api clients. Annotell Python clients such as in annotell-ams, or annotell-input-api accept an auth parameter that can be set explicitly or you can omit it and use environment variables.

There are a few ways to set your credentials in auth.

  1. Set the environment variable ANNOTELL_CREDENTIALS to point to your Annotell Credentials file. The credentials will contain the Client Id and Client Secret.
  2. Set to the credentials file path like auth="~/.config/annotell/credentials.json"
  3. Set environment variables ANNOTELL_CLIENT_ID andANNOTELL_CLIENT_SECRET
  4. Set to credentials tuple auth=(client_id, client_secret)

API clients such as the InputApiClient accept this auth parameter.

Under the hood, they all use the AuthSession class which is implements a requests session with automatic token refresh.

from annotell.auth.authsession import FaultTolerantAuthRequestSession

sess = FaultTolerantAuthRequestSession()

# make call to some Annotell service with your token. Use default requests
