Automating retrieval of request token


To get an access token, we need three things: (1) API key, (2) API Secret, and (3) Request Token. In most of the video tutorial, I have seen we have to manually get the request token. Is there any way to automate this process? Because I need to run this in a cloud server.

    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.

    @rakeshr -

    1) For generating fresh access token we have to first re-login to Kite using password & TPIN / TOTP everyday in morning as you get logged out at around 5 am everyday.

    2) Then only the below API call goes through to generate request token & then when this goes through we try to generate access token.***********&v=3
    So there are 2 manual steps to be completed everyday.

    If there are critical algos that are supposed to start right with the market at 9:15 am & if for any reason you are late in doing all these manual tasks, your algos for the day go for a toss.

    I have already read about "mandatory by the exchange" thing on multiple threads in the forum.

    But this is too much of a hassle when you are trying to use technology to ease things and are also paying a monthly fees for API subscriptions.

    Do you have any suggestions here to ease things?

    Our stance has always been clear. We want to follow whatever regulations dictate and we would suggest our users do the same.
