Python client for Directory API.
Great API client.
$ pip install directory-api-client
The api client expects the following settings:
|DIRECTORY_API_CLIENT_API_KEY||Unique to client. Retrieved during the on-boarding process.|
|DIRECTORY_API_CLIENT_SENDER_ID||Unique to client. Retrieved during the on-boarding process.|
The following directory client core settings also apply to directory cms client:
|DIRECTORY_CLIENT_CORE_CACHE_EXPIRE_SECONDS||Duration to store the retrieved content in the cache.|
|DIRECTORY_CLIENT_CORE_CACHE_LOG_THROTTLING_SECONDS||Duration to throttle log events for a given url for.|
And the caching expects the following key in CACHES setting:
Once that is done the API client can be used:
from directory_api_client.client import api_client
$ git clone https://github.com/uktrade/directory-api-client $ cd directory-api-client $ [create virtual environment and activate] $ make test_requirements
Where feasible the response is cached to the client's fallback cache. This allows retrieval later if API returns non successful response or times out.
When enabling the fallback cache on a handler make sure that the request's querystring or url path are unique per user, otherwise the User B's details could be leaked User A.
api_client.company.profile_retrieve looks up the company for the authenticated user. The authentication header is not used when generating the cache key for the response. This means for that endpoint the querystring and url are the same for all users, so the cache key would therefore also be the same for all users. This means if API was down then all users would see the company details for the last user to successfully retrieve their company.
Publish to PyPI
The package should be published to PyPI on merge to master. If you need to do it locally then get the credentials from rattic and add the environment variables to your host machine:
Then run the following command:
