Concur API Project

Project description

The Concur API SDK is a Python client library designed to support Concur’s Developer APIs. You can read more about the Official API by accessing its official documentation.

System Requirements

Concur API SDK depends on the following Python libraries:

  • requests

Installation

Install using pip:

pip install concurapi.

Configuration

You’ll need to register at Concur’s Administration site. Before you create a partner application, make sure your user account has web service administrator access. You can create a partner application by following these steps.

  • Log on to Concur’s Administration using your username and password
  • Follow the links Administration -> Company -> Web Services
  • Click on the link to register a partner application in the left navigation bar.
  • In the next screen click on the New button to create a new application
  • In the modal dialog, you can choose the permissions for the actions you need to automate.

Also, please note the system generated Key and Secret. These values are used by the sdk to make a call to Concur’s API.

Usage

Before you use the sdk, you’ll need to register a partner application and retrieve a Key/Secret. Please see Configuration. You’ll also need to install the client sdk using pip. Please see System Requirements and Installation.

from concurapi.client import ConcurAPI
from concurapi.models import Report
api = ConcurAPI(client_key="Kq4qIqR3K3zgOJwdI2KLtQ",
                client_secret="Kq4qIqR3K3zgOJwdI2KLtQ",
                username="concuruser@xyz.com",
                password="johndoe")
report = Report(attributes=dict(Name="First Report",
                Description="Report for a new Expense"), api=api)
report.create()
get_report = Report.find(report['ID'])

If the service is not available, the sdk throws a ServiceNotAvailable exception which can be handled like so:

from concurapi.client import ConcurAPI
from concurapi.exceptions import ServiceNotAvailable
import sys
try:
    api = ConcurAPI(client_key="Kq4qIqR3K3zgOJwdI2KLtQ",
                       client_secret="Kq4qIqR3K3zgOJwdI2KLtQ",
                       username="concuruser@xyz.com",
                       password="johndoe")
except ServiceNotAvailable as se:
     #handle ServiceNotAvailable exception
     sys.exit(se.message)

The sdk returns HTTPException when there is a REST exception from the API. As an example, if a report with id - 12345-abcde is not available, the service returns a 404 HTTP Exception

from concurapi.client import ConcurAPI
from concurapi.exceptions import HTTPException
from concurapi.models import Report
import sys
try:
 api = ConcurAPI(client_key="Kq4qIqR3K3zgOJwdI2KLtQ",
                    client_secret="Kq4qIqR3K3zgOJwdI2KLtQ",
                    username="concuruser@xyz.com",
                    password="johndoe")
 Report.find("1234-abcde")

except HTTPException as he:
  #handle HTTPException exception
  sys.exit(he.message)
