How can I use the Public API Python client?


I try to use the Public API Python client that is new in DSS 2.1.0.

When I try to import the library, I get an error. How can I install it?

For the installation of the Python client API, you can refer to the documentation:

I assume in this answer that you want to use the client inside DSS (in a notebook or in a recipe). Remember that you should use the Python virtual environment of DSS (see How to install Python packages?).

git clone
cd dataiku-api-client-python
python build
cd /path/to/data_dir
./bin/pip install -e /path/to/dataiku-api-client-python

Note that on Mac OS X the data_dir is by default ~/Library/DataScienceStudio/dss_home/

Then, you need to define an API key in DSS.

When you have it, you can for instance list project_keys in a notebook:

I hope that helps,
