A python wrapper for the Logentries API

Project description


This is a Python wrapper for the Logentries API. The API object terms follow the semantics from the Logentries website, not the Logentries API.

The InactivityAlert and AnomalyAlert classes simulate a user login to create the appropriate alerts.

This is not endorsed or provided by Logentries, and no commercial support is provided.


To create a new tag called ‘user_agent = curl’ and associate it with a log called ‘someset/somelog’:

from logentries_api import Tags, Hooks, Labels, LogSets

label = Labels().create('user_agent = curl')
log = LogSets().get('someset/somelog')
tag = Tags().create(label['sn'])
hook = Hooks().create(
    regexes=['user_agent = /curl\/[\d.]*/'],


To install the latest release, type:

pip install python-logentries-api

To install the latest code directly from source, type:
