export record programmatically, session_id mssing

on 4/25/16, 8:17 AM 806 views


I try to simulate the functionallity which happens while exporting a record. This url is used:

I analysed whats happening and if I set the session_id and token manually it's working fine. Now what I try to do is to get the session_id in my script but I have no success so far.

session = requests.Session()
session_id = session.get('http://url').cookies.get_dict()["session_id"]

I get a session_id with the code above but I guess it's not from a authenticated user.

So my question is how do I get a session_id from a authenticated user? I can login with xmlrpc interface just fine, but I didn't find any information how to get to the session_id.

Thank you for your help

The solution [1] was to make a request to web/session/authenticate to get the session_id of a authenticated user.
