This is a Python code sample to show how to check the status of a fax that was previously submitted to InterFAX. This code sample is based on the Python library for InterFAX available on Github.

This sample demonstrates how to check the status of a single fax - all you need to do in order to change it is to provide a different fax id (the fax id - also referred to as transaction ID, is returned to you when successfully submitting a fax).

    # given an InterFAX fax ID
fax_id = '12345'
# retrieve the fax
fax = interfax.outbound.find(fax_id)
# check the status


The status of the fax is only one of several parameters that you can retrieve in regards to a fax. For a full list, please review our API documentation.
