Project description

The Thycotic DevOps Secrets Vault Python SDK

The Thycotic DevOps Secrets Vault (DSV) Python SDK contains classes that interact with the DSV REST API.


python -m pip install python-dsv-sdk


The SDK API requires a tenant, client_id, client_secret and optional tld.

The API uses the tenant to create request URLs and it uses the client_id and client_secret to obtain an OAuth2 access_token with which to call the DSV REST API.

The optional top-level domain (TLD) defaults to com.


Simply instantiate SecretsVault:

from thycotic.secrets.vault import SecretsVault

vault = SecretsVault("my_tenant", "my_client_id", "my_client_secret")

Then pass a path to get_secret() which will return the secret as a JSON encoded string. The SDK API also contains a VaultSecret @dataclass containing a the Secret's attributes. The data attribute is a Python Dictionary.

from thycotic.secrets.dataclasses import Secret

secret = VaultSecret(**vault.get_secret("/test/secret"))

print(f"username: {['username']}\npassword: {['password']}")

Create a Build Environment (optional)

The SDK requires Python 3.6 or higher, and the Requests library.

First, ensure Python 3.6 is in $PATH then run:

git clone
cd python-dsv-sdk
python -m venv venv
. venv/bin/activate
pip install -r requirements.txt

Both and the unit tests pull the settings from a JSON file.

with open('vault_config.json') as f:
    config = json.load(f)

They also assume that the specified client_id and client_secret can read /test/secret, and that the contains username and password fields.

Create vault_config.json:

    "client_id": "359f8c9f-d555-40ff-a036-ce95432e708b",
    "client_secret": "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "tenant": "mytenant"

Finally, run pytest then build the package:

python bdist
