    "request_access_token" has changed to "generate_session" in version 3. You can find the change log here and find the new docs here.
  • Ashok121
    data = kite.generate_session("request_token_here", secret="your_secret")kite.set_access_token(data["access_token"])

    Is above in one line?

    1. import logging
    2. from kiteconnect import KiteConnect
    3. logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG)
    4. kite = KiteConnect(api_key="my api key")
    # my request token from "" and login.
    5. data = kite.generate_session("my request token",api_secret="my api secret")

    7. kite.set_access_token(data["access_token"])

    Please correct if above steps are not correct or anything missing. becuase with above even I am not able to get access token in ipython and getting message " Invalid token".

    I would like to know if an access_token generated by logging in from one session is constrained to be used only from that session, or whether it can be additionally be used for things like getting LTP in a python/node script
  • sujith
    Once an access token is obtained it can be used for anything.
