HCP SDK for Python 3

Quick link: HCP SDK for Python 3

HCPsdk provides a simple SDK to access an Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) from Python3. It handles name resolution, multiple sessions spread across all available HCP nodes, persistent connections and recovery from failing connections.

It’s that easy:

>>> import hcpsdk

>>> # initialize an *Authorization* object
>>> auth = hcpsdk.NativeAuthorization('user', 'password')

>>> # initialize a *Target* object
>>> t = hcpsdk.Target("namespace.tenant.hcp.your.domain",
                      auth, port=443)

>>> # initialize a Connection to the `Target``
>>> c = hcpsdk.Connection(t)

>>> # do something with the connection...
>>> r = c.GET('/rest/your_file.txt')
>>> c.response_status, c.response_reason
(200, 'OK')
>>> r.read()
b'some data...'
>>>
>>> c.close()

Features

  • Handles HCP as a target object
  • Connection objects, while tied to a target object, allow access to HCP through HCPs native http/REST dialect
  • Higher level modules provide easy access to namespace statistics and some MAPI functionality, along with the ability to create unique object names / paths

Dependencies

hcpsdk depends on these package(s):

  • dnspython3 - Used for non-cached name resolution when bypassing the system’s resolver.
