Connecting to a channel w/ Python

I'm attempting to connect to a channel via python using the websocket-client library (see: GitHub - websocket-client/websocket-client: websocket client for python ). I've got a basic script that attempts to connect to a channel. When I do I keep getting 400 Bad Request responses. My code is below, any assistance is greatly appreciated. Note I've edited out the web ID from my system. Assume they are correct.


import websocket
import ssl

    import thread
except ImportError:
    import _thread as thread
import time

def on_message(ws, message):

def on_error(ws, error):

def on_close(ws):
    print("### closed ###")

def on_open(ws):
    def run(*args):
        for i in range(3):
            #ws.send("Hello %d" % i)
        print("thread terminating...")
    thread.start_new_thread(run, ())

if __name__ == "__main__":
    webid = "" #real web ID omitted assume it's valid
    options = ""
    uri = "wss://piserver1/piwebapi/streams/" + webid + "/channel" + options
    ws = websocket.WebSocketApp(uri,
                              on_message = on_message,
                              on_error = on_error,
                              on_close = on_close)

    ws.on_open = on_open
    ws.run_forever(sslopt={"cert_reqs": ssl.VERIFY_DEFAULT})
