from kiteconnect import KiteConnect
from selenium import webdriver
import time
import os

cwd = os.chdir("C:/Users/hozef/OneDrive/Desktop/New_Logic")

def autologin():
token_path = "credentials.txt"
key_secret = open(token_path, 'r').read().split()
kite = KiteConnect(api_key=key_secret[0])
service = webdriver.chrome.service.Service('./chromedriver')
options = webdriver.ChromeOptions()
# options.add_argument('--headless')
options = options.to_capabilities()
driver = webdriver.Remote(service.service_url, options)
username = driver.find_element_by_xpath('/html/body/div[1]/div/div[2]/div[1]/div/div/div[2]/form/div[1]/input')
password = driver.find_element_by_xpath('/html/body/div[1]/div/div[2]/div[1]/div/div/div[2]/form/div[2]/input')

pin = driver.find_element_by_xpath('/html/body/div[1]/div/div[2]/div[1]/div/div/div[2]/form/div[2]/div/input')

request_token = driver.current_url.split('=')[1].split('&action')[0]
with open('request_token.txt', 'w') as the_file:


# generating and storing access token - valid till 6 am the next day
request_token = open("request_token.txt", 'r').read()
key_secret = open("credentials.txt", 'r').read().split()
kite = KiteConnect(api_key=key_secret[0])
data = kite.generate_session(request_token, api_secret=key_secret[1])
with open('access_token.txt', 'w') as file:

After I execute the code I get the following error:

TokenException: Token is invalid or has expired.

    It is mandatory by the exchange that a user has to log in manually at least once a day. We don't recommend automating login.

    I logged in manually once and tried. Apart from this I have been using this app for about 6 months and never have I faced this issue
  • sujith
    We have been recommending not to automate login since the day we went live. It is against the regulation, so we recommend you don't automate login.
