run workflow from the gallery using API with Python

5 - Atom



I am trying to run a workflow located in the gallery by using the API (I am using Python)

I am able to launch it from the API_docs but impossible to launch it with my script Python, I am suspecting the Oauth_Signature.


Do y know how to generate the Oauth_signature, I have tried many combination but impossible to find a correct one.




Thank you for your help

I am in my Server and navigated to http://localhost/gallery/api-docs/.

I went to Admin V2 tab. Input Key and Secret for API access form http://localhost/gallery/#!account/settings/keys

I see the message in Response Messages(screenshot attached). Cant proceed further. 


I am trying to use API to download all workflows in production which is older version, and then import to a development server which is latest version and test the workflows.


What steps should I take to get API documentation site to work for me. I think this would be the first step, then I can use to download the workflows.


Is there a better way to export all workflows from a Server?


Thank you.
