Make examples Python3 ready.




Python Library for PagerDuty's v1 REST API.

This library is currently evolving and backwards compatibility cannot always be guaranteed at this time.


You can install with pip install pygerduty.

If you want to install from source, then python setup.py install.


Tested on Python 2.7, or >= 3.3.

Known to work on Python 2.6.


Pygerduty is a thin wrapper around PagerDuty's APIs. You will need to refer to the the PagerDuty Documentation for all available parameters to pass and all available attributes on responses.

The main methods available to resources are list, show, create, update, and delete. Not all resources have endpoints for all of the above methods. Again, refer to the PagerDuty Documentation to see all available endpoints.

Top level resources will be accessible via the PagerDuty object and nested resources available on containers returned from their parent resource.


Instantiating a client:

import pygerduty
pager = pygerduty.PagerDuty("foobar", "SOMEAPIKEY123456")

Listing a resource:

for schedule in pager.schedules.list():
    print(schedule.id, schedule.name)

# PX7F8S3 Primary
# PJ48C0S Tertiary
# PCJ94SK Secondary

Getting all schedules associated with a user:

user = pager.users.show('PDSKF08')
for schedule in user.schedules.list():
    print(schedule.id, schedule.name)

# PTDSKJH Support

Getting a resource by ID:

schedule = pager.schedules.show("PX7F8S3")

Creating a resource:

user = next(pager.users.list(query="gary", limit=1))
override = schedule.overrides.create(
    start="2012-12-16", end="2012-12-17", user_id=user.id)

Delete a resource:


Updating a resource:

pagerduty.users.update(user.id, name="Gary Example")

Acknowledging a group by incidents:

me = next(pager.users.list(query="me@you.com", limit=1))
for incident in pagerduty.incidents.list(status='triggered'):
