attempting to access account thru JSON API - getting error: session required

Hi I posted this yesterday and it seems to have gone missing, so trying again today.

I am trying access my account data with the Webrequest and for the logon request, I am getting a message saying session is required. However, the session is not required according to the documentation and that the session is returned for further calls after.

Any ideas?

You need to correctly send your login information.
That is how you generate your session.

Here is the link to the API.


If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.

thanks for the reply.

I understood, as you suggest, that a login is required to get a session. When I do a login, the error message says I need a session to do a login. Makes no sense.

It may work for you:

Request = ''
response = requests.get(Request, verify = False)
data = response.json()
Session = data['session']
path = ('' + Session)
response = requests.get(path, verify = False)
