Python client for airt service 2022.8.0

A python library encapsulating airt service REST API available at:


For full documentation, Please follow the below link:

How to install

If you don't have the airt library already installed, please install it using pip.

pip install airt-client

How to use

To access the airt service, you must create a developer account. Please fill out the signup form below to get one:

Upon successful verification, you will receive the username/password for the developer account in an email.

Finally, you need an application token to access all the APIs in airt service. Please call the Client.get_token method with the username/password to get one.

You can either pass the username, password, and server address as parameters to the Client.get_token method or store the same in the AIRT_SERVICE_USERNAME, AIRT_SERVICE_PASSWORD, and AIRT_SERVER_URL environment variables.

After successful authentication, the airt services will be available to access.

As an additional layer of security, we also support Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and Single sign-on (SSO) for generating tokens.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) can be used to help protect your account from unauthorized access by requiring you to enter an additional code when you request a new token.

Once authenticated successfully, activating MFA for your account is a simple two step process:

  1. Enable MFA for your account by calling User.enable_mfa method which will generate a QR code. You can then use an authenticator app, such as Google Authenticator to scan the QR code.

  2. Activate the MFA by calling User.activate_mfa method and passing the dynamically generated six-digit verification code from the authenticator app.

Once MFA is successfully activated, you need to pass the dynamically generated six-digit verification code along with the username/password to Client.get_token method for generating new tokens.

You can also disable MFA for you account anytime by calling User.disable_mfa method.

Once authenticated successfully, you can also enable Single sign-on (SSO) for your account. Currently, we support only Google and Github as the external authentication providers (SSO). More authentication providers will be supported in the upcoming releases.

Authenticating using Single sign-on (SSO) is also a three-step process:

  1. Enable the SSO provider by calling the User.enable_sso method with a valid SSO provider and an email address.

  2. To get the token, you must have to complete the SSO authentication with the provider. Calling the Client.get_token method with a valid SSO provider will give you an authorization URL. Please copy and paste it into your preferred browser and initiate the authentication and authorization process with the SSO provider.

  3. Once the authentication is successful, calling the Client.set_sso_token method gets a new developer token and will implicitly use in all the interactions with the airt server.

  • API with reference documentation.

Below is a minimal example explaining how to train a model and make predictions using airt services.

In the below example, the username, password, and server address are stored in AIRT_SERVICE_USERNAME, AIRT_SERVICE_PASSWORD, and AIRT_SERVER_URL environment variables.
