How to set time parameters and OAuth2 / Client Credentials in modular input python code?

I am attempting to write a modular input using python code. The helper code has examples for you to use.. I'm new to python and splunk so I was wondering if someone could help me with the parameters.. The parameters are a start and end time. How would I define/set the parameters? I also need to pass through OAuth2 and Client credentials.

Here is the example they provide:

# The following examples send rest requests to some endpoint.
response = helper.send_http_request(url, method, parameters=None, payload=None,
headers=None, cookies=None, verify=True, cert=None,
timeout=None, use_proxy=True)
# get the response headers
r_headers = response.headers
# get the response body as text
r_text = response.text
# get response body as json. If the body text is not a json string, raise a ValueError
r_json = response.json() will be getting the response as text
# get response cookies
r_cookies = response.cookies
# get redirect history
historical_responses = response.history
# get response status code
r_status = response.status_code
# check the response status, if the status is not sucessful, raise requests.HTTPError
response.raise_for_status()

So far I have..
url = myurl
method = get
parameters = this is the part I need help with
response = helper.send_http_request(url, method, parameters=None, payload=None,
headers=None, cookies=None, verify=True, cert=None,
timeout=None, use_proxy=True)
