Python SDK

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

The only input you will need to provide in the request body is the id, which is the Layar ID for the connector you're interested in getting the details for. To find this ID programmatically, you can use the search_connectors endpoint.

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

# Provide Parameters for Request Body
id = 'id_example' # Layar ID for the Connector

# Run the update_connector API call
    api_response = api_instance.get_connector(id)
except ApiException as e:
    print("Exception when calling ConnectorApi->get_connector: %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 update_connector endpoint of the ConnectorApi.


You should expect to see a list of different properties associated with the Twitter Connector you identified in the request body. The property (or properties) you changed as part of this API call you be reflected in the response, and those properties should be changed accordingly.
