How do I use session objects in Python Requests?

The Requests session object allows you to persist specific parameters across requests to the same site. To get the session object in Python Requests, you need to call the requests.Session() method. The Session object allows specific parameters to be saved across multiple sequential requests to the same host (such as cookies). Also, the Session object will enable you to reuse an open TCP connection and significantly increase network requests' performance since you do not need to re-establish a TCP connection every time you send a request. The Session object includes all the methods of the main Requests API. In this Python example, we get the Requests session object and add a custom header to it. This header will be sent on all requests we made using the session object. Click Execute to run Python Requests Session Example online and see the result.
