Update Local Variable with Python

I'm using python code to update variables from a dataset within an Application. When the python code runs it is updating the Global variables by default. Is there a way to specify for python to update the Local Variables and not the Global Variables?

    Try using dataiku's client api:

    import dataiku

    client = dataiku.api_client()
    project = client.get_default_project()

    # retrieve your project variables in a json which two first keys are 'standard' (which contains your project global variables) and 'local' (which contains your project local variables)
    project_variables = project.get_variables()

    my_local_variable_value = "foo"
    project_variables['local']["my_local_variable"] = my_local_variable_value
