set_api_key method

Class: ConfigurationPlatform: ImagesLanguage: Python SDK:

Use this method to set your Eyes license key.

To obtain your API key, see How to obtain your API key.

Syntax


configval = config.set_api_key(api_key)

Parameters

api_key
Type:Text
A string that is your API Key.

Return value

Type: Self
The value returned is the object that called the method. This allows you to use a fluent style to call the setXXXX methods of this class.

Remarks

Set this immediately after the Eyes object is created (before calling open). If you have an environment variable called APPLITOOLS_API_KEY that is set to the value of your API key, then you do not need to call this method, and Eyes will take the string from the environment value.
