Pritunl API Client for Python

Project description

Pritunl API Client for Python 3

This is a simple API Client written in Python 3.

You need to refer Pritunl API Documentationl to get an idea of how to use this. This API client uses almost the same command as in the API Handlers.


Install from our PyPI Project Repository

pip install pritunl-api

Beyond the Core API Client Library, we also added the executable distribution in this project. To enable the CLI feature just add extra cli during the pip installation.

pip install pritunl-api[cli]

Proceed to the CLI Usage for the complete commands syntax.

API Usage

import os
from pritunl_api import Pritunl

pritunl = Pritunl(

# Your Pritunl API Client Object is now ready to use!


  • Example 1:

    (in source) GET /server

  • Example 2:

    (in source) PUT /server/:server_id/organization/:organization_id

    pritunl.server.put(srv_id='', org_id='')
  • Example 3:

    (in source) DELETE /user/:organization_id/:user_id

    pritunl.user.delete(org_id='', usr_id='')
  • Example 4:

    (in source) POST /server**{
      'name': 'new server name'})

    * If there is data available, you must pass it through the data parameter.

    * The command above works well because there are templates available for creating a new server._

  • Example 5:

    (in source) PUT /user/:organization_id/:user_id

    api.user.put(org_id='', usr_id='', data={
      'name': 'modified org name',
      'disabled': True})
