    Are you using the generate_session method?
  • reddy4305
    yes Sujith, i am using the generate_session method as following. My user ID is ZT7008

    data = kite.generate_session("request_token_here", api_secret="your_secret")

    Thanks Sujith, now my request token is being generated properly on using the url.
    But when I input it in generate session as following, I am getting a token is invalid or expired error.
    from kiteconnect import KiteConnect
    kite = KiteConnect(api_key="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx")
    data = kite.generate_session("request_tokenxxxx", api_secret="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx")
    TokenException Traceback (most recent call last)
    in ()
    3 kite = KiteConnect(api_key="xxx")
    4 kite.login_url()
    ----> 5 data = kite.generate_session("AzSKpa34L15yK7BwRIkQdQAqgkr9JGl0", api_secret="xx")
    6 kite.set_access_token(data["access_token"])

    C:\Anaconda\lib\site-packages\kiteconnect\ in generate_session(self, request_token, api_secret)
    226 "api_key": self.api_key,
    227 "request_token": request_token,
    --> 228 "checksum": checksum
    229 })

    C:\Anaconda\lib\site-packages\kiteconnect\ in _post(self, route, params)
    671 def _post(self, route, params=None):
    672 """Alias for sending a POST request."""
    --> 673 return self._request(route, "POST", params)
    675 def _put(self, route, params=None):

    C:\Anaconda\lib\site-packages\kiteconnect\ in _request(self, route, method, parameters)
    736 # native Kite errors
    737 exp = getattr(ex, data["error_type"], ex.GeneralException)
    --> 738 raise exp(data["message"], code=r.status_code)
    740 return data["data"]

    TokenException: Token is invalid or has expired.

    Make sure you don't post your api_key, api secret or any tokens on public threads. You can use the private message for sending these stuff.
