How To Integrate Pulseway With Python

Pulseway provides API endpoints to to handle rest api operation. We need to install 'slumber' packages into our python apps and use any rest end point.Let’s create folder 'pulseway-example' for sample project and api.py file into this folder.

How To Install slumber HTTP Client Package in Python

We will use slumber package to handle HTTP request.You can install slumber and flask package using following command –

pip install slumber
pip install flask

Create HTTP Request Using Slumber

We will create HTTP request using slumber to handle get system information.We will add below code into api.py file.

from flask import Flask
from flask_restful import Resource, Api
from flask_cors import CORS
import slumber
 
app = Flask(__name__)
CORS(app) ## To allow direct AJAX calls
 
@app.route('/getSystems', methods=['GET'])
def home():
   try:        
    api = slumber.API(ENDPOINT, auth=(USERNAME, PASSWORD))

    result = api.systems("28440dda-f385-4ec8-a5c3-d1e6074113bb").get()
    return r.json()

   except Exception as e:
    print('Publish raised an exception.')
    print(e.strerror)   

 
if __name__ == '__main__':
   app.run(debug = True)

Basic Authentication requires an Authorization header with the username and API token in the username:password format encoded as Base64.

Then we will fire HTTP get call with system id to get system information.
