  • Python 2.7+ or Python 3.7+.
  • pip (Optional) - This package manager isn't required to use this SDK, but it is required to use the installation instructions below.


These instructions are for MacOS. They will need to be adapted if you are installing on Windows.


Follow these steps to add this SDK as a dependency to your project.

  1. (Optional) Create a new directory for your Python project. Skip this step if you already have created a project. If you plan to create multiple Python projects that use Telesign, we recommend that you group them within a telesign_integrations directory.
    cd ~/code/local
    mkdir telesign_integrations
    cd telesign_integrations
    mkdir {your project name}
    cd {your project name}
  1. Install the SDK as a dependency in the top-level directory of your project using the command below. Once the SDK is installed, you should see a message in the terminal notifying you that you have successfully installed the SDK.

    pip install telesignenterprise


If you use a Telesign SDK to make your request, authentication is handled behind-the-scenes for you. All you need to provide is your Customer ID and API Key. The SDKs apply Digest authentication whenever they make a request to a Telesign service where it is supported. When Digest authentication is not supported, the SDKs apply Basic authentication.
