Python API client for ionoscloud_dbaas_postgres

An enterprise-grade Database is provided as a Service (DBaaS) solution that can be managed through a browser-based "Data Center Designer" (DCD) tool or via an easy to use API.

The API allows you to create additional PostgreSQL database clusters or modify existing ones. It is designed to allow users to leverage the same power and flexibility found within the DCD visual tool. Both tools are consistent with their concepts and lend well to making the experience smooth and intuitive.


The IONOS Cloud SDK for Python provides you with access to the IONOS Cloud Dbaas Postgres API. The client library supports both simple and complex requests. It is designed for developers who are building applications in Python. All API operations are performed over SSL and authenticated using your IONOS Cloud portal credentials. The API can be accessed within an instance running in IONOS Cloud or directly over the Internet from any application that can send an HTTPS request and receive an HTTPS response.

Installation & Usage


  • Python >= 3.5

pip install

Since this package is hosted on Pypi you can install it by using:

pip install ionoscloud-dbaas-postgres

If the python package is hosted on a repository, you can install directly using:

pip install git+

Note: you may need to run pip with root permission: sudo pip install git+

Then import the package:

import ionoscloud_dbaas_postgres


Install via Setuptools.

python install --user

or sudo python install to install the package for all users

Then import the package:

import ionoscloud_dbaas_postgres

NOTE: The Python SDK does not support Python 2. It only supports Python >= 3.5.


The username and password or the authentication token can be manually specified when initializing the SDK client:

configuration = ionoscloud_dbaas_postgres.Configuration(
client = ionoscloud_dbaas_postgres.ApiClient(configuration)

Environment variables can also be used. This is an example of how one would do that:

import os

configuration = ionoscloud_dbaas_postgres.Configuration(
client = ionoscloud_dbaas_postgres.ApiClient(configuration)

Warning: Make sure to follow the Information Security Best Practices when using credentials within your code or storing them in a file.

HTTP proxies

You can use http proxies by setting the following environment variables:

  • IONOS_HTTP_PROXY_HEADERS - proxy headers

Changing the base URL

Base URL for the HTTP operation can be changed in the following way:

import os

configuration = ionoscloud_dbaas_postgres.Configuration(
client = ionoscloud_dbaas_postgres.ApiClient(configuration)

Certificate pinning:

You can enable certificate pinning if you want to bypass the normal certificate checking procedure, by doing the following:

Set env variable IONOS_PINNED_CERT=<insert_sha256_public_fingerprint_here>

You can get the sha256 fingerprint most easily from the browser by inspecting the certificate.
