I'm dead lost :)
Goal is to logon to a web site that uses OAuth2. However the section I need to run, doesn't have an API associated with it. So I need to login, just using the username and password, and then navigate to the page in question and do a screen scrape to get my data.
I'm sure the problem isn't at the web site it's sitting at this keyboard. But i've searched for examples and tried a whole bunch of guesses, but nothing is working
Help would be gratefully accepted.
import oauth2 as oauth
r = requests.get(logon_url)
consumer = oauth.Consumer(key=user, secret=password)
client = oauth.Client(consumer)
resp, content = client.request(r.url, "GET")
token_url = resp['content-location']
# At this point i'm lost i'm just guessing on the rest
# the next doesn't give an error but i'm sure it's wrong
resp2, content2 = client.request(token_url, 'GET')
# save the cookie, i do have a cookie but not sure what i have
auth_token = resp['set-cookie']
Like so many things, it's just a user error
code to get me to the page is so simple. And the following code does the trick. Thanks to Furas for the pointer.
with requests.session() as s1: # get login form r = s1.get(logon_url) # post the username and password resp = s1.post(r.url,data=payload) # get the admin page resp2 = s1.get(page_url)
