import gatepass

#Account Info: LogicMonitor recommends to NEVER hardcode the credentials. Instead, retrieve the values from a secure storage.
#Note: The below is provided for illustration purposes only.
AccessId = getpass.getpass("Enter your AccessId: ")
AccessKey = getpass.getpass("Enter your AccessKey: ")

#Construct URL

#Get current time in milliseconds

#Concatenate Request details

# Print status and body of response
print('Response Status:',response.status_code)
