Namespaces and collections

The ConnectClient instance allows access to collections of resources using the collection() method of the client:

products = client.collection('products')

The previous call to the collection() method returns a Collection object that allows working with the resources that contain.

Some collections of the CloudBlue Connect ReST API are grouped within a namespace.

To access a namespace the client exposes the ns() method:

subscriptions = client.ns('subscriptions')

Since Connect Python OpenAPI Client has been designed following the fluent interface design pattern, you can chain methods:

assets = client.ns('subscriptions').collection('assets')

This previous previous expression can be written in a more concise way:

assets = client('subscriptions').assets


For collections that use a dash in their names, it is yet possible to use the concise form by replacing the dash character with an underscore.
