Python-api-module cannot import?

Hi. Centos 7 - Python 2.7.5

After using pip to add atlassian-python-api, we found it couldn’t be imported. Below is a simple Hello-World level script, and a run. Help?

[bitbucket@san-mech-bitbucket-3 docats]$ cat
from atlassian import bitbucket


[bitbucket@san-mech-bitbucket-3 docats]$ python
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in
from atlassian import bitbucket
File “/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/atlassian/”, line 1, in
from .bamboo import Bamboo
File “/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/atlassian/”, line 73
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Okay. It’s a python version issue. This module needs python3. So, the question is modified. Is there a (working) python2 version? Moving up to python 3 is out of the question.
