    ]
    

  • keywords (list[str] (0 - 1024 items), optional) – A set of terms used to categorize the flow used in query and discovery operations

  • additional_fields (dict or str -> any, optional) – Additional Key/Value pairs sent to the create API

External Documentation

See Create Flow in the API documentation for details.

get_flow(flow_id: Union[uuid.UUID, str], *, query_params: Optional[Dict[str, Any]] = None) globus_sdk.response.GlobusHTTPResponse[source]

Retrieve a Flow by ID

Parameters
  • flow_id (str or UUID) – The ID of the Flow to fetch

  • query_params (dict, optional) – Any additional parameters to be passed through as query params.

External Documentation

See Get Flow in the API documentation for details.

list_flows(*, filter_role: Optional[str] = None, filter_fulltext: Optional[str] = None, orderby: Optional[str] = None, marker: Optional[str] = None, query_params: Optional[Dict[str, Any]] = None) globus_sdk.services.flows.response.IterableFlowsResponse[source]

List deployed Flows

Parameters
  • filter_role (str, optional) – A role name specifying the minimum permissions required for a Flow to be included in the response.

  • filter_fulltext (str, optional) – A string to use in a full-text search to filter results

  • orderby (str, optional) – A criterion for ordering flows in the listing

  • marker (str, optional) – A marker for pagination

  • query_params (dict, optional) – Any additional parameters to be passed through as query params.

Role Values

The valid values for role are, in order of precedence for filter_role:

  • flow_viewer

  • flow_starter

  • flow_administrator

  • flow_owner

For example, if flow_starter is specified then flows for which the user has the flow_starter, flow_administrator or flow_owner roles will be returned.

OrderBy Values

Values for orderby consist of a field name, a space, and an ordering mode – ASC for “ascending” and DESC for “descending”.

Supported field names are

  • id

  • scope_string

  • flow_owners

  • flow_administrators

  • title

  • created_at

  • updated_at

For example, orderby="updated_at DESC" requests a descending sort on update times, getting the most recently updated flow first.

Paginated Usage

This method supports paginated access. To use the paginated variant, give the same arguments as normal, but prefix the method name with paginated, as in

>>> client.paginated.list_flows(...)

For more information, see how to make paginated calls.

delete_flow(flow_id: Union[uuid.UUID, str], *, query_params: Optional[Dict[str, Any]] = None) globus_sdk.response.GlobusHTTPResponse[source]

Delete a Flow

Parameters
  • flow_id (str or UUID, optional) – The ID of the flow to delete

  • query_params (dict, optional) – Any additional parameters to be passed through as query params.

External Documentation

class globus_sdk.SpecificFlowClient(flow_id: Union[uuid.UUID, str], *, environment: Optional[str] = None, authorizer: Optional[globus_sdk.authorizers.base.GlobusAuthorizer] = None, app_name: Optional[str] = None, transport_params: Optional[Dict[str, Any]] = None)[source]

Bases: globus_sdk.client.BaseClient

Client for interacting with a specific Globus Flow through the Flows API.

Unlike other client types, this must be provided with a specific flow id. All other

arguments are the same as those for ~globus_sdk.BaseClient.

Parameters

flow_id (str or uuid) – The generated UUID associated with a flow

Methods

run_flow(body: Dict[str, Any], *, label: Optional[str] = None, tags: Optional[List[str]] = None, run_monitors: Optional[List[str]] = None, run_managers: Optional[List[str]] = None, additional_fields: Optional[Dict[str, Any]] = None) globus_sdk.response.GlobusHTTPResponse[source]
Parameters
  • body (json dict) – The input json object handed to the first flow state. The flows service will validate this object against the flow’s supplied input schema.

  • label (Optional string (0 - 64 chars)) – A short human-readable title

  • tags (Optional list of strings) – A collection of searchable tags associated with the run. Tags are normalized by stripping leading and trailing whitespace, and replacing all whitespace with a single space.

  • run_monitors (Optional list of strings) – A list of authenticated entities (identified by URN) authorized to view this run in addition to the run owner

  • run_managers (Optional list of strings) – A list of authenticated entities (identified by URN) authorized to view & cancel this run in addition to the run owner

  • additional_fields (Optional dictionary) – Additional Key/Value pairs sent to the run API (this parameter is used to bypass local sdk key validation helping)

Client Errors

When an error occurs, a FlowsClient will raise a FlowsAPIError.

class globus_sdk.FlowsAPIError(r: requests.models.Response, *args: Any, **kwargs: Any)[source]

Bases: globus_sdk.exc.api.GlobusAPIError

Error class to represent error responses from Flows.
