Getting Started

Once you are done with installation of package and dependencies in your project, You can easily call the API in your Python based code to consume the API features. Here is the sample code to demonstrate the working of GroupDocs.Signature Cloud API using Python SDK. Please follow the installation procedure and then run the following Python code:

# Import module
 import asposestoragecloud
 import groupdocs_signature_cloud
 from groupdocs_signature_cloud.models.requests.post_search_barcode_request import PostSearchBarcodeRequest
 from groupdocs_signature_cloud.models import *

 host = ""   # Put your Host URL here
 base_url = "" #Put your Base URL here
 api_key = "" #Put your App Key here
 app_sid = "" #Put your App Sid here
 storageName = "Signature-Dev" #Put your storage name here
 storageFolder = "signed" #Put your storage folder path here
 storageFileName = "SignedForVerificationAll.pdf" #Put your storage file name here
 filePassword = "" #Put your file password here if file is encrypted
 localFilePath = "C:\\SignedForVerificationAll.pdf" #Put your local file path here

 # File uploading (it could be skipped if file is already uploaded)
 # initialization of configuration for storage api client
 storageConfiguration = asposestoragecloud.Configuration() = host
 storageConfiguration.base_url = base_url
 storageConfiguration.api_key_prefix = "Bearer"

 # initialization of storage api client
 storageApiClient = asposestoragecloud.ApiClient(apiKey = api_key, appSid = app_sid, configuration = storageConfiguration)
 storageApi = asposestoragecloud.apis.StorageApi(storageApiClient)
 # file uploading
 filestream = open(file = localFilePath, mode = "rb")
 storageApi.put_create(path = storageFolder + "\\" + storageFileName, file = filestream, storage = storageName)      
 print("Uploaded: " + storageFolder + "\\" + storageFileName)     

 # Signature search
 # initialization of configuration for signature api client
 configuration = groupdocs_signature_cloud.Configuration() = host
 configuration.base_url = base_url
 configuration.api_key["api_key"] = api_key
 configuration.api_key["app_sid"] = app_sid
 # initialization of signature api client
 signatureApi = groupdocs_signature_cloud.SignatureApi(configuration=configuration)

 # initialization of search options
 options = PdfSearchBarcodeOptionsData()
 # set barcode properties
 options.barcode_type_name ="Code39Standard"
 options.text = "12345678"
 # set match type
 options.match_type ="Contains"
 #set pages for search
 options.document_page_number = 1

 # initialization of search request
 request = PostSearchBarcodeRequest(storageFileName, options, filePassword, storageFolder, storageName)

 # getting response
 response = signatureApi.post_search_barcode(request)
 # checking response
 self.assertNotEqual(response, False)
 self.assertEqual(response.code, "200")
 self.assertEqual(response.status, "OK")
 self.assertIn(storageFileName, response.file_name)
 self.assertEqual(response.folder, storageFolder)
 self.assertNotEqual(response.signatures, False)
 self.assertGreater(len(response.signatures), 0)
 signature = response.signatures[0]
 self.assertEqual(signature.text, "123456789012")
 self.assertEqual(signature.barcode_type_name, "Code39Standard")
 self.assertIn("BarcodeSignatureData", signature.signature_type)
