Pelion Device Management Python SDK

Project description

The mbed-cloud-sdk gives developers access to Pelion Device Management API using Python.


Python 2.7.10+ / Python 3.4.3, built with SSL support.

Use of virtual environments or pipenv is recommended to manage python versions and dependencies.


pip install mbed-cloud-sdk


These instructions can also be found in the official documentation:

  1. Create a configuration file .env in your $HOME or project directory, and add your API key from the portal:

  2. Import the library and you’re ready to go.

    from import Device
    # List the first 10 devices on your Pelion Device Management account.
    for device in Device().list(max_results=10):
        print("Hello device %s" %

Documentation and examples

The SDK guide and examples are available at GitHub.

The documentation contains many examples covering various Use Cases that you may have. In each case you can compare the python implementation with alternatives in languages supported by the other Pelion Device Management SDKs.


The Pelion Device Management SDK for Python is open source and we would like your help; there is a brief guide on how to get started in


The Pelion Device Management SDK for Python is free to use and is licensed under the Apache License 2.0. See LICENCE for more information.


The current version scheme used by the SDK follows PEP440:

<SDK major>.<SDK minor>.<SDK patch>


Suggestions for issues that have been reported when using the SDK.

    urllib3.exceptions.MaxRetryError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='', port=443):
    Max retries exceeded with url: /v3/firmware-images/
    (Caused by SSLError(SSLError(1, u'[SSL: SSLV3_ALERT_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE] sslv3 alert handshake failure (_ssl.c:590)'),))

    This probably means the Python interpreter being used has an old version of SSL. The recommended minimum version for the SDK is 1.0.2, however security best practice is to use the latest available version of SSL, which can be found here: It is recommended to upgrade/rebuild the Python interpreter with the latest available SSL library. The SSL version currently in use by the Python interpreter can be found using python -c "import ssl; print(ssl.OPENSSL_VERSION)"
