Python Connector User Guide


The Koverse Python Connector allows API access via the Koverse Python Client, which includes all of the available API calls and is included when the connector is installed. Python 3.8.5+ and pip3 are prerequisites for installation of the connector.

The Python Client and Python Connector allow you to establish a connection to the Koverse API and handle requests in order to upload and manipulate data in Koverse via API with more ease than by using the Koverse Python Client directly. All of the endpoints defined in the Open-API spec are available through the Koverse Python Client. The Python Connector provides helpful methods which simplify the use of the underlying Python Client. Some examples of Python Connector methods are to convert from a Koverse dataset to a Python Pandas DataFrame, or to read a batch of records from Koverse. There are many more helpful methods that simplify using the endpoints available in the Python Client.

Python Client

This client is automatically installed when the connector is installed. Prerequisites for the client and connector are the same, and dependencies are automatically installed as part of the Python Connector installation procedure.


To install the Koverse Python Connector from PyPi, run the following command:

pip install kdp-python-connector

To install only the Koverse Python Client from PyPi, run the following command:

pip install kdp-api-python-client


Using the connector, you can establish a Python-backed connection with the Koverse API. This can be done directly via a Python Shell, via an application like Databricks, or another custom solution. See Koverse Python Connector Examples for demonstrations of several ways the Koverse Python Connector can be utilized.

Step 1

Set System Variables to provide the values for the variables listed below:


  • EMAIL - Koverse user's email address
  • PASSWORD - Koverse user's password
  • WORKSPACE_ID - Koverse user's workspace id
  • DATASET_ID - Koverse user's dataset id


  • KDP_URL - Koverse url to connect to:


  • PATH_TO_CSV_FILE - location to the csv file to be ingested:


  • STARTING_RECORD_ID - record to start reading:


  • PATH_TO_CA_FILE - when not provided will not verify ssl of request:


  • INPUT_FILE - file with data to ingest:


  • BATCH_SIZE - number of records in a batch:


Step 2

Execute your code:

python3 <filename>
