Flask SDK for Axioms

Project description

axioms-flask-py PyPI

Axioms Python client for Flask. Secure your Flask APIs using Axioms Authentication and Authorization.


  • Python 3.7+
  • An Axioms client which can obtain access token after user's authentication and authorization and include in Authorization header of all API request sent to Python/Flask application server.

Install SDK

Install axioms-flask-py in you Flask API project,

pip install axioms-flask-py

Basic usage

Add .env file

Create a .env file and add following configs,


Load Config

In your Flask app file (where flask app is declared) add following.

from flask_dotenv import DotEnv
env = DotEnv(app)

Register Error

In your Flask app file (where flask app is declared) add following.

from flask import jsonify
from axioms_flask.error import AxiomsError

def handle_auth_error(ex):
    response = jsonify(ex.error)
    response.status_code = ex.status_code
    return response

Guard API Views

Use is_authenticated and has_required_scopes decorators to guard your views. For a protected API view, is_authenticated should be always the first decorator. Order of decorators is important. has_required_scopes should always come after is_authenticated.

has_required_scopes requires an array of strings representing the required scopes as parameter.

For instance, to check openid and profile pass ['profile', 'openid'] as parameter in has_required_scopes.

from axioms_flask.decorators import is_authenticated, has_required_scopes

@private_api.route('/private', methods=["GET"])
@has_required_scopes(['openid', 'profile'])
def api_private():
    return jsonify({'message': 'All good. You are authenticated!'})
