Xplenty API Python SDK

## Xplenty Python Wrapper

[ ![Codeship Status for xplenty/](](

The Xplenty PY is a python artifact that provides a simple wrapper for the [Xplenty REST API]( To use it, create an XplentyClient object and call its methods to access the Xplenty API. This page describes the available XplentyClient methods.

### Installation

Via pip:
pip install xplenty

### Create an Xplenty Client Object
Pass your account ID and API key to the XplentyClient constructor.
from xplenty import XplentyClient
account_id ="MyAccountID"
api_key = "V4eyfgNqYcSasXGhzNxS"
client = XplentyClient(account_id,api_key)
### Create a Cluster

This method creates a new cluster. A cluster is a group of machines ("nodes") allocated to your account. The number of nodes in the cluster is determined by the "nodes" value that you supply to the call. While the cluster is active, only your account's users can run jobs on the cluster.
You will need to provide an active cluster when starting a new job. Save the cluster ID value returned in the response "id" field. You will use the value to refer to this cluster in subsequent API calls.
cluster_type = "production"
nodes = 2
name ="New Cluster #199999"
description ="New Cluster's Description"
terminate_on_idle = False
time_to_idle = 3600
cluster = client.create_cluster(cluster_type, nodes, name, description, terminate_on_idle, time_to_idle)
### List All Clusters

This method returns the list of clusters that were created by users in your account.
You can use this information to monitor and display your clusters and their statuses.
clusters = client.clusters
print "Number of clusters:",len(clusters)
for cluster in clusters:
print,, cluster.created_at
### Get Cluster Information

This method returns the details of the cluster with the given ID.
id = 85
cluster = client.get_cluster(id)
### Terminate a Cluster

This method deactivates the given cluster, releasing its resources and terminating its runtime period. Use this method when all of the cluster's jobs are completed and it's no longer needed. The method returns the given cluster's details, including a status of "pending_terminate".
id = 85
cluster = client.terminate_cluster(id)
print cluster.status
### Run a Job

This method creates a new job and triggers it to run. The job performs the series of data processing tasks that are defined in the job's package. Unless the job encounters an error or is terminated by the user, it will run until it completes its tasks on all of the input data. Save the job ID value returned in the response "id" field. You will use the value to refer to this job in subsequent API calls.
cluster_id = 83
package_id = 782
variables = {}

job = client.add_job(cluster_id, package_id, variables)

### List All Jobs

This method returns information for all the jobs that have been created under your account.
jobs =

for job in jobs:
print , job.progress , job.status
### Get Job Information

This method retrieves information for a job, according to the given job ID.
job_id = 235
job = client.get_job(job_id)
print job.status
### Terminate a Job

This method terminates an active job. Usually it's unnecessary to request to terminate a job, because normally the job will end when its tasks are completed. You may want to actively terminate a job if you need its cluster resources for a more urgent job, or if the job is taking too long to complete.
job_id = 235
job = client.stop_job(job_id)
print job.status

### List All Packages

This method returns the list of packages that were created by users in your account.
You can use this information to display your packages and their properties.
packages = client.packages
print "Number of packages:",len(packages)
for package in packages:
print,, package.created_at
### Get Package Information

This method returns the details of the package with the given ID.
id = 85
package = client.get_package(id)
