F5 SDK (Python) documentation


The F5 SDK (Python) provides client libraries to access various F5 products and services. It focuses primarily on facilitating consuming our most popular APIs and services, currently including BIG-IP (via Automation Tool Chain) and F5 Cloud Services.


  • Provides hand-written or auto-generated client code to make F5’s APIs/services simple and intuitive to use.

  • Handles the low-level details of communication with the API or service, including authentication sessions, async task handling, protocol handling, large file uploads, and more.

  • Can be installed using familiar package management tools such as pip.

Supported Platforms

  • Linux (Major distros)

  • Mac OS (future, for official support)

  • Windows (future, for official support)
