SendSafely Python API
The SendSafely Python API lets you integrate SendSafely secure data transfer capabilities directly into your Python application.
The example below shows you how to install the
sendsafely package, import it as a module, and use it to create a package. Make sure that you have Python 3 or higher installed, as well as pip and Setuptools.
To install the SendSafely Python API, simply run
pip install sendsafely
Import the SendSafely modules to start making your API calls
from sendsafely import SendSafely, Package
Create a Sendsafely instance object
sendsafely = SendSafely("https://your-company.sendsafely.com", "API_KEY", "API_SECRET")
Create a new package
package = Package(sendsafely)
Add a secure message to the package
package.encrypt_and_upload_message("hello this is a message")
Add a recipient to the package
Finalize the package so it can be delivered to the recipients. The returned response contains the Secure Link needed for recipients to access the package.
response = package.finalize()
You will need to generate your own API_KEY and API_SECRET from the API Keys section of your Profile page when logged into your SendSafely portal.
sendsafely_python_example.py - demonstrates how the SendSafely Python API can be used to create packages and handle encrypt/upload and download/decrypt operations without the API developer having to implement these complex operations.
sendsafely_rest_example.py - demonstrates how the SendSafely Python API can be used to call SendSafely REST API endpoints directly. This is useful for cases where the SendSafely Python API does not currently implement a function for calling the endpoint.
Before running the example scripts, you will need to update the
base_url variables in the script before running it.
