To run Toolchest jobs, you'll need a Toolchest key. If you don't have one yet, you can get a key here.

Setting a Key

Use the set_key function to authenticate your Toolchest calls:

import toolchest_client as tc

YOUR_TOOLCHEST_KEY should be a string containing either the key value or a path to a file containing the key.

You can also set your key through the TOOLCHEST_KEY environment variable.

Getting a Stored Key

To check the value of the key in use, use the get_key function, which returns a string containing your key value.

import toolchest_client as tc

Private Tools and Databases

If you'd like to use a private tool database with Toolchest without exposing it to the public, Toolchest supports restricting some databases and tools to your account.
