Pull Time Series (Signal) from an Amphora

You must have purchased an Amphora to consume it's data

Signals are live time-series. You can view and download Signals, either via the web application, or by using the REST API or any Amphora Data client SDK.

Get Signal on web app

To view an Amphora Signal click Signals on the left of the Amphora page. You will see a set of graphs similar to below.

This is an exploratory dashboard and it enables you to discover the data in a simple format. You can choose different signals, different time boxes, and filter by specific values or properties.

You can download the selected timeseries by clicking the ... button and selecting Download.

Note that not all Amphoras contain Signals.

Get Signal programmatically

Most of the time you will want to consume data programmatically. You can check out the latest SDKs, sample code and tutorials at GitHub. We provide a public Open API specification at api.amphoradata.com/swagger. We currently generate and provide a C# SDK, Node.js SDK, and Python SDK.


You can pull a file with python using


The basic code to get started pulling files is

# Import Amphora modules
from amphora.client import AmphoraDataRepositoryClient, Credentials
# Import non-Amphora modules
import os
# Login to amphoradata.com
credentials = Credentials(username=os.getenv('username'), password=os.getenv('password'))
client = AmphoraDataRepositoryClient(credentials)
# Get Amphora object
amphora = client.get_amphora(Amphora_id)
# Pull signal
signals = amphora.get_signals()

You can download this code from GitHub. You can watch a tutorial video too. There is also more detailed docs in the Python SDK section.


Code for pulling signals can be found on GitHub. We are expanding our docs for C# so stay tuned for more details.
