Cisco Identity Services Engine Platform SDK

Project description

ciscoisesdk is a community developed Python library for working with the Identity Services Engine APIs. Our goal is to make working with Cisco Identity Services Engine in Python a native and natural experience!

from ciscoisesdk import IdentityServicesEngineAPI
from ciscoisesdk.exceptions import ApiError

# Create a IdentityServicesEngineAPI connection object;
# it uses ISE custom URL, username, and password, with ISE API version 3.0.0
# and its API Gateway enabled,
# and verify=True to verify the server's TLS certificate.
api = IdentityServicesEngineAPI(username='admin',
# NOTE: This collection assumes that the ERS APIs and OpenAPIs are enabled.

# Get allowed protocols (first page)
search_result = api.allowed_protocols.get_all().response.SearchResult
if search_result and search_result.resources:
  for resource in search_result.resources:
    resource_detail = api.allowed_protocols.get_by_id(
    print("Id {}\nName {}\nallowChap {}\n".format(,

# Handle pagination with a generator
allowed_protols_gen = api.allowed_protocols.get_all_generator()
for allowed_protocols_page_resp in allowed_protols_gen:
  allowed_protols_result = allowed_protocols_page_resp.response.SearchResult
  for resource in allowed_protols_result.resources:
    resource_detail = api.allowed_protocols.get_by_id(
    print("Id {}\nName {}\nallowChap {}\n".format(,

# Filter network device
device_list_response = api.network_device.get_all(filter='name.EQ.ISE_EST_Local_Host_19')
device_responses = device_list_response.response.SearchResult.resources
device_response = device_responses[0]

# Get network device detail
device_response_detail = api.network_device.get_by_id(

# Delete network device
delete_device = api.network_device.delete_by_id(

# Create network device
    network_device_response = api.network_device.create(
                                network_device_iplist=[{"ipaddress": "", "mask": 32}])
    print("Created, new Location {}".format(network_device_response.headers.Location))
except ApiError as e:

# Advance usage example using Custom Caller functions
## Define a Custom caller named function
## Call them with:
##    get_created_result(network_device_response.headers.Location)
def get_created_result(location):
    return api.custom_caller.call_api('GET', location)

## Define the get_created_result function
## under the custom_caller wrapper.
## Call them with:
##    api.custom_caller.get_created_result(network_device_response.headers.Location)
def setup_custom():
                                lambda location:
                                api.custom_caller.call_api('GET', location)

# Add the custom API calls to the connection object under the custom_caller wrapper

# Call the newly added functions
created_device_1 = get_created_result(network_device_response.headers.Location)
created_device_2 = api.custom_caller.get_created_result(network_device_response.headers.Location)
print(created_device_1.response == created_device_2.response)
