Provides a tuple of (major, minor, patch) version of the Seeq Server the supplied session is connected to (as integers). If a session is not supplied, the default session is used.

The major version of the Seeq SDK should match the major version of the Seeq Server. You can retrieve the version of the Seeq Server (once you’ve logged in) via spy.utils.get_server_version_tuple().

Use this function instead of parsing sdk.__version__.

Parameters:

session (spy.Session, optional) – If supplied, the Session object used for the connection to Seeq Server. If not supplied, the default session is used.

url (str) – The URL

Returns:

The Seeq ID as a string, or None if no workbook ID was found

Return type:

{str, None}

seeq.spy.utils.get_worksheet_id_from_url(url)

Get the Seeq ID of a worksheet from a URL

Given a URL copied from a browser or from an API response ‘href’ attribute, get the URL of the worksheet.

seeq.spy.utils.get_workstep_id_from_url(url)

Get the Seeq ID of a workstep from a URL

Given a URL copied from a browser or from an API response ‘href’ attribute, get the URL of the workstep.

Note that URLs from a browser rarely specify the workstep. URLs that contain the workstep normally come from links in Organizer Topic Documents or href attributes in API outputs.

Parameters:

url (str) – The URL

Returns:

The Seeq ID as a string, or None if no workstep ID was found

Return type:

{str, None}

seeq.spy.utils.is_guid(s: object)

seeq.spy.utils.parse_str_time(str_time: str) Tuple[float, str, float]

Given a string time like 5min, 3hr, 2d, 7mo, etc, get the numeric and unit portions and calculate the total number of milliseconds. Time units will be converted to the Seeq canonical versions, eg, ‘sec’ will yield ‘s’. For example ‘5min’ returns (5, ‘min’, 300000)

Param:

Returns:

tuple (numeric portion, string unit, total milliseconds)

seeq.spy.utils.time_abbreviation_to_ms_multiplier(abbreviation)

Given a time abbreviation, returns a multiplier that converts the time value to ms and the canonical version of that time abbreviation. For example, “6 sec”, pass the “sec” to this function and it will return (1000, ‘s’). Multiplying 6 by 1000 gives the duration in ms.

Parameters:

abbreviation (str) – The time abbreviation. Acceptable values are: s, sec, second, seconds min, minute, minutes h, hr, hour, hours d, day, days w, wk, wks, week, weeks m, mo, month, months y, yr, yrs, year, years
