[Question] How to verify the API token using this library?

See original GitHub issue

How do I use this library to verify a token? This is the api endpoint with a curl example. I like to use this library to verify the given token.

something like

cf = CloudFlare.CloudFlare(token=legal_token)
cf.verify_token() # returns True
cf = CloudFlare.CloudFlare(token=illegal_token)
cf.verify_token() # returns False

can help me understand how to do this with this library?

Or a way to extract token details

Because I also want to check if the token has the right permissions.

@simkimsia - I added an example to call the correct API and print the result. Please try this.

Like all API calls you just follow the API name to create a Python call.

    cf = CloudFlare.CloudFlare(token=legal_token)
    response = cf.user.verify.token()

Then follow the information on Cloudflare’s API page to see what values are returned.

Hope that helps.
