import_key Method

Imports the key specified by UserId to the current keyring.

Syntax

def import_key(file_name: str, user_id: str) -> None: ...

Remarks

This method imports the key specified by UserId from the key file specified by FileName into the current keyring. The imported key will be automatically selected and available in the key property.

If the FileName specifies a key file which contains multiple keys only the key belonging to UserId will be imported.

If UserId is set to "*" or "" (empty string) all keys in the key file will be imported. The ImportAllKeys setting controls the behavior of the class in this case.

Note: If you simply wish to select a key in the current ring set key_user_id instead.
