from defectdojo_api import defectdojo

# setup DefectDojo connection information
host = 'http://localhost:8000/'
api_key = 'your_api_key_from_DefectDojo'
user = 'admin'

# instantiate the DefectDojo api wrapper
dd = defectdojo.DefectDojoAPI(host, api_key, user, debug=False)

# If you need to disable certificate verification, set verify_ssl to False.
# dd = defectdojo.DefectDojoAPI(host, api_key, user, verify_ssl=False)

# Create a product
prod_type = 1 #1 - Research and Development, product type
product = dd.create_product("API Product Test", "This is a detailed product description.", prod_type)

if product.success:
    # Get the product id
    product_id =
    print "Product successfully created with an id: " + str(product_id)

#List Products
