A wrapper around the Apple App Store Connect APIs

Project description


asconnect is a Python wrapper around the Apple App Store Connect REST APIs.

This wrapper does not cover every API, but does cover the basics, including:

  • Uploading a build
  • Creating a new TestFlight version
  • Setting TestFlight review information
  • Creating a new app store version
  • Setting the app review information
  • Submitting for app review

Getting Started


The package is available on PyPI, so you can run pip install asconnect to get the latest version.

Creating a client

To begin, you need to generate a key, then get it's ID, the contents of the key itself, and the issuer ID.

Once you have those, you can create a new client by running:

client = asconnect.Client(key_id="...", key_contents="...", issuer_id="...")

Getting your App

Most operations require an app identifier. This is not the same as the bundle ID you choose, but is an ID generated by Apple. The easiest way to get this is to run this code:

app ="com.example.my_bundle_id")

Uploading a Build

Uploading a build isn't technically part of the App Store Connect APIs, but a wrapper around altool is included to make things as easy as possible. Let's upload a build for your app:

And if you want to wait for your build to finish processing:

build ="com.example.my_bundle_id", build_number)

build_number is the build number you gave your build when you created it. It's used by the app store to identify the build.

App Store Submission

Let's take that build, create a new app store version and submit it,

# Create a new version
version ="1.2.3", app_id=app.identifier)

# Set the build for that version
client.version.set_build(version_id=version.identifier, build_id=build.identifier)

# Submit for review

It's that easy. Most of the time at least. If you don't have previous version to inherit information from you'll need to do things like set screenshots, reviewer info, etc. All of which is possible through this library.

Phased Distribution

# Create a new version
version ="1.2.3", app_id=app.identifier)

# Start a versions' phased release, the initial state of which is INACTIVE
phased_release = client.version.create_phased_release(version_id=version.identifier)

# Check on a phased release
phased_release = client.version.get_phased_release(version_id=version.identifier)

# Advance or modify a phased release
phased_release = client.version.patch_phased_release(phased_release_id=phased_release.identifier,
phased_release = client.version.patch_phased_release(phased_release_id=phased_release.identifier, phased_release_state=PhasedReleaseState.pause)
phased_release = client.version.patch_phased_release(phased_release_id=phased_release.identifier, phased_release_state=PhasedReleaseState.complete)

# Delete
