The class uses the user's credentials.

# CLIENT_SECRETS is name of a file containing the OAuth 2.0 information for this
# application, including client_id and client_secret. You can see the Client ID
# and Client secret on the APIs page in the Cloud Console:

# Helpful message to display if the CLIENT_SECRETS_FILE is missing.
WARNING: Please configure OAuth 2.0
To make this sample run you need to populate the client_secrets.json file

class GCS_Authentication():
Authenticates the application using the user's credentials via OAuth2.
@note: It uses OAuth2.
def _create_http_auth_client(self, force_auth, debug_level):
Creates an authenticated HTTP request object.
@param force_auth: Flag to recreate the stored credentials [True | False].
@param debug_level:The level of debugging message to use (0 to 4).
config.app_data['http_client'] = http_client
config.app_data['auth_http_client'] = auth_http
@note: In order for this function to work you need to populate the
client_secrets.json file.
The credentials are stored in a local file and reused without going through
the OAuth2 flow again, unless you force the authentication to be executed.
This might be required to change the authentication scope.
# Authenticate the application.
# Set up a Flow object to be used for authentication.
flow = flow_from_clientsecrets(CLIENT_SECRETS_FILE, scope=config.app_data['scope'],
# If the credentials don't exist or are invalid run through the native client
# flow. The Storage object will ensure that if successful the good
# credentials will get written back to the file.
credential_storage = CredentialStorage(CREDENTIALS_FILE)
credentials = credential_storage.get()
if credentials is None or credentials.invalid or force_auth:
credentials = run_oauth2(flow, credential_storage)
# Create Google Cloud Storage authenticated client.
# Create an httplib2.Http object to handle our HTTP requests
# and authorize it with our good Credentials.
http_client = httplib2.Http()
if debug_level != None:
# Set debug level.
auth_http = credentials.authorize(http_client)
