SpaceSense’s API requires you to authenticate with an API key given when you sign up for a trial or subscription. The API key must be set as an environment variable called SS_API_KEY. The following code snippet can be run in your terminal/environment to set this environment variable.

import os
from getpass import getpass
if "SS_API_KEY" not in os.environ:
 from getpass import getpass
 api_key = getpass('Enter your api key : ')
 os.environ["SS_API_KEY"] = api_key

If you have any questions or need help with your authentication, please contact us at
