Directory Factory

The Directory factory is built with Directory credentials and has access to both the Directory Client and the Service Client.

Creating a Directory Factory

A Directory factory can be created by using the DirectoryFactory class. It utilizes Directory specific credentials to identify itself, encrypt and sign the request data, and verify the signature and decrypt encrypted response data. All of the information can be located on the Keys tab of the Directory's page in Admin Center. The data is as follows:

  • Directory ID
  • Private Key


from launchkey.factories import DirectoryFactory
directory_id = "9e0310ba-d9d6-11e6-942a-b4750ee43a10";
private_key = "-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----\n" \
        "MIIBOwIBAAJBALEihtCuDrAp35QpaUZ+ycfsdsCGRQGUz8nbkNwP2XsCZPqamj2A\n" \
        "QF3Tgod8tTCvvEw4X1YUuHposQnDiYkb3bkCAwEAAQJBALECAZpy9PaRQXy7TRpH\n" \
        "BLil0Z1eD4MfA+2BXeaqZ/eEqRyGzPqTYP+Ch6EB8t+xuWMoG3xgA55AxTle++TG\n" \
        "dQECIQDdadMLa2z9e8cPQ42+XU4vtPdh3P2Okewg6ST9wYOhkQIhAMzOCKcDC7Pz\n" \
        "eg3SKvG40i2/VLJfHP72gLFkdIb2+GWpAiBi5bbfve8j1hrW5Yy1gAXBZ2qsKsKS\n" \
        "4PkAxkLAmaRLEQIhAMT7ngLUwRrRoaFNdZSMyUrK7fGp3b+048666gEt5XgRAiBf\n" \
        "UHCrSnIR6lx7FksBbVZdvqNZViJL1kVVLNXa9JgHiw==\n" \
        "-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----\n"

directory_factory = DirectoryFactory(directory_id, private_key);

Accessing The Directory Client

The Directory Client can be accessed without credentials as they have already been provided to the factory:

directory_client = directory_factory.make_directory_client()

Accessing the Service Client

The Service Client can be access by providing a Service ID for a Service belonging to the Directory as follows:

service_id = "b1d05c28-0b18-41e4-94a0-853758eeefc8";
service_client = directory_factory.make_service_client(service_id)
