Project description

A Python API wrapper for DefectDojo, an AppSec and Security Vulnerability Management tool.

This package implements API functionality available within Dojo.

Quick Start

Several quick start options are available:

  • Install with pip (recommended): pip install defectdojo_api
  • Download the latest release
  • Clone the repository: git clone
  • If you are testing the api locally make sure to set the PYTHONPATH. export PYTHONPATH=/path/totheapi/defectdojo_api:$PYTHONPATH


# import the package
from defectdojo_api import defectdojo

# setup DefectDojo connection information
host = 'http://localhost:8000/'
api_key = 'your_api_key_from_DefectDojo'
user = 'admin'

# instantiate the DefectDojo api wrapper
dd = defectdojo.DefectDojoAPI(host, api_key, user, debug=False)

# If you need to disable certificate verification, set verify_ssl to False.
# dd = defectdojo.DefectDojoAPI(host, api_key, user, verify_ssl=False)

# Create a product
prod_type = 1 #1 - Research and Development, product type
product = dd.create_product("API Product Test", "This is a detailed product description.", prod_type)

if product.success:
    # Get the product id
    product_id =
    print "Product successfully created with an id: " + str(product_id)

#List Products
products = dd.list_products()

if products.success:
    print(products.data_json(pretty=True))  # Decoded JSON object

    for product in["objects"]:
        print(product['name'])  # Print the name of each product
    print products.message
