  • An IBM Cloud account.
  • An IAM API key to allow the SDK to access your account. Create one here.
  • Python 3.8 or above.


To install, use pip:

python -m pip install --upgrade ibm-platform-services

Then in your code, you can import the appropriate service like this:

from ibm_platform_services.<service-module-name> import *

where <service-module-name> is the service's module name from the table above
