Hi,

Please note that for ease of use, we strongly recommmend using our Python client (https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/python-api/) rather than manually interacting with the REST API. The Python client makes it much easier to interact with the API.

In order to create a project with the REST API, you need to POST on /public/api/projects/. There is no "get-summary" endpoint in the REST API.

Your POST body should be JSON and contain the following keys at a minimum: projectKey, name and owner

Here is a sample:

 

 

curl -X POST -u YOUR_API_KEY_HERE: http://YOUR_DSS_HOST:YOUR_DSS_PORT/public/api/projects/ -H "Content-Type: application/json" --data '{"projectKey": "MYNEWPROJECT", "name": "My new very nice project", "owner": "admin"}'

Hi @Clément_Stenac ,

thank you for the details, do we have any examples on how to use client?

 

i was referring this https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/python-api/rest-api-client/client.html

 

is this correct way to do it?

 

client = dataiku.api_client()
client.create_project("cezF9Ycuh", "ABCTEST", "name", description=None, settings=None, project_folder_id=None)

 

also i am seeing below error python back end service is not starting, is there any way to start it?

Hi,

Yes this is the correct way to do it.

 

Since your Python issue is unrelated, please make sure to open another topic. Please keep each discussion on a single topic.

Hi @Clément_Stenac ,

perfect thanks, its works, so is there any recommendation to use

project_key (str) – the identifier to use for the project. Must be globally unique?

how to generate this key any default charsets/ number of characters limits etc?
