Change Log

The change log is located in the documentation here:


This section provides basic usage instructions for the package.

Importing the package

The package can be imported into a Python script using the syntax below.

import khorosjx

Initializing the modules

While it is certainly possible to import modules directly (e.g. from khorosjx import users), it is recommended that you instead leverage the init_module() function as shown below.

khorosjx.init_module('content', 'users')

In the example above, both the khorosjx.content and the khoros.users modules have been initiated.

Note: It is not necessary to import the khorosjx.core module as it is imported by default.

Establishing the API connection

Before leveraging the API in function calls, you must first establish your connection by providing the base URL for the environment (e.g. and the username and password for the unfederated service account through which the API calls will be made. This is demonstrated below.

base_url = ''
credentials = ('adminuser', 'password123!')
khorosjx.core.connect(base_url, credentials)

Note: At this time the library only allow connections using basic authentication, but there are plans to include the ability to leverage OAuth 2.0 in a future release.

Once the connection has been established, you can proceed to leverage the library of functions in the various modules as needed.


The following packages are leveraged within the khorosjx package:

  • numpy 1.17.4
  • pandas-0.25.3
  • python-dateutil 2.8.1
  • pytz 2019.3
  • requests 2.22.0
  • urllib3 1.25.7

The full requirements list can be found in the requirements.txt file.
