Getting Started

Initializing BlockScore

import blockscore
client = blockscore.Client({'api_key':'Your API Key'})


List all people

people_list = client.people.all()
people_list = people_list.body

List 5 people

people_list = client.people.all(count=5)
people_list = people_list.body

View a person by ID

person = client.people.retrieve(person_id)
person = person.body

Create a new person

test_identity = {
            "name_first": "John",
            "name_middle": "Pearce",
            "name_last": "Doe",
            "birth_day": "23",
            "birth_month": "8",
            "birth_year": "1980",
            "document_type": "ssn",
            "document_value": "0000",
            "address_street1": "1 Infinite Loop",
            "address_street2": "Apt 6",
            "address_city": "Cupertino",
            "address_subdivision": "CA",
            "address_postal_code": "95014",
            "address_country_code": "US",

person = client.people.create(test_identity)
person = person.body

Question Sets

Create a new question set

question_set = client.question_sets.create(person_id)
question_set = question_set.body

Score a question set

score = self.client.question_sets.score(qset_id, [
	{'question_id':1, 'answer_id':1},
	{'question_id':2, 'answer_id':1},
	{'question_id':3, 'answer_id':1},
	{'question_id':4, 'answer_id':1},
	{'question_id':5, 'answer_id':1}
score = score.body
