Endpoint Method


Before running your API calls, remember to authenticate!

Import Dependencies

Make sure at the top of your script you've got the relevant dependencies:

# import dependencies
import layar_api
from layar_api.rest import ApiException
from pprint import pprint

Instantiate API & Make Request

Since there are no input parameters for this endpoint, you can copy this code snippet as is.

# Instantiate API Class
api_instance = layar_api.ConnectorApi(layar_api.ApiClient(configuration))

# Run The API Call
    # Search for Twitter connectors
    api_response = api_instance.search_connectors()
except ApiException as e:
    print("Exception when calling ConnectorApi->search_connectors: %s\n" % e)

You're all set to run your script!


Check for Updates

To view the most updated methods for the Layar Python SDK, please review the documentation for the search_connectors endpoint of the ConnectorApi.


You should expect to see a list of Connector objects with each Twitter connectors' details.

For example, below would be the response if the Layar instance (e.g. 'demo.vyasa.com') had connected only two Twitter connectors:

{'connector_type': 'TWITTER',
 'created_by_user': 25000,
 'date_indexed': datetime.datetime(2021, 11, 10, 13, 4, 10, 78000, tzinfo=tzutc()),
 'id': 'AX0EzH3jz-8jqgm_ta5d',
 'name': 'Multiple Sclerosis News'},

{'connector_type': 'TWITTER',
 'created_by_user': 25013,
 'date_indexed': datetime.datetime(2019, 10, 18, 15, 40, 12, 21000, tzinfo=tzutc()),
 'id': 'BC3ghrQaM1gR0EVW22Uw',
 'name': 'Colon Cancer Drugs'}
