Overview

This page shows the usage of the Global Component API, please see the following for more details.

Test tools

You can use curl in terminal, with -X method (GET|POST|PUT|DELETE), -d data (a json string). or GUI plugins for browsers, such as RESTClient, RESTConsole.

Documents & examples

Method: GET

URL: /rest_api/v1/global-components/

Query Params:

  • dist_git_path (string)
  • label (string)
  • name (string)
  • upstream_homepage (string)
  • upstream_scm_type (string)
  • upstream_scm_url (string)
  • ordering (string) Comma separated list of fields for ordering results.
    • To sort by a field in descending order, prefix its name with minus (e.g. -name).
    • Use double underscores for nested field names (e.g. parent__child for {"parent": {"child": ...}}).

Following filters can be used to show only specific fields. This can make response time faster. Format is list or single value (JSON: {"fields": ["a","b"]} or {"fields": "a"}, in URL: ?fields=a&fields=b).

  • fields (list | string) Fields to display (other fields will be hidden).
  • exclude_fields: (list | string) Fields NOT to display (overrules fields).

            }
}

Method: POST

URL: /rest_api/v1/global-components/

Data:

{
    'name':                string,         # required
    'dist_git_path':       string,         # optional
    'upstream':            dict,           # optional
}

Response:

{
    "id": int,
    "name": string,
    "dist_git_path": string,
    "dist_git_web_url": string,
    "labels": array,
    "upstream": dict
}

Example:

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://pdc.fedoraproject.org/rest_api/v1/global-components/ \
        -d '{ "name": "Demo", "dist_git_path": "rpm/Demo"}'
# output
{
    "id": 4181,
    "name": "Demo",
    "dist_git_path": "rpm/Demo",
    "dist_git_web_url": "http://pkgs.example.com/cgit/rpms/rpm/Demo"
    "labels": [],
    "upstream": null | {
                    "homepage": string,
                    "scm_type": string,
                    "scm_url": string
                }
}

It is possible to create this resource in bulk. To do so, use the same procedure as when creating a single instance, only the request body should contain a list of JSON objects. The response you get back will also contain a list of values which you would obtain by submitting the request data separately.

Method:

PUT/PATCH: for update

Data:

# accept any field(s) from 'name', 'dist_git_path' and 'upstream'
{'name': 'new_name',
 'dist_git_path': 'new_dist_git_path',
 'upstream': {'homepage': 'homepage',
              'scm_type': 'scm-type',
              'scm_url': 'url'}
}

URL: /rest_api/v1/global-components/{instance_pk}/

Response:

{
    "id": int,
    "name": string,
    "dist_git_path": string,
    "dist_git_web_url": string,
    "labels": array,
    "upstream": null | {
                    "homepage": string,
                    "scm_type": string,
                    "scm_url": string
                }
}

Example:

PUT:

curl -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://pdc.fedoraproject.org/rest_api/v1/global-components/4181/ \
        -d '{"name": "Demo1", "dist_git_path": "rpm/Demo1"}'
# output
{
    "id": 4181,
    "name": "Demo",
    "dist_git_path": "rpm/Demo1",
    "dist_git_web_url": "http://pkgs.example.com/cgit/rpms/rpm/Demo1"
    "labels": [],
    "upstream": null
}

PATCH:

curl -X PATCH -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://pdc.fedoraproject.org/rest_api/v1/global-components/4181/ -d '{"dist_git_path": "rpm/Demo1"}'
# output
{
    "id": 4181,
    "name": "Demo",
    "dist_git_path": "rpm/Demo1",
    "dist_git_web_url": "http://pkgs.example.com/cgit/rpms/rpm/Demo1"
    "labels": [],
    "upstream": null
}

Method: DELETE

URL: /rest_api/v1/global-components/{instance_pk}/

Response:

STATUS: 204 NO CONTENT

Example:

curl -X DELETE -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://pdc.fedoraproject.org/rest_api/v1/global-components/4181/

It is possible to delete multiple items in one request. Use the DELETE method with the same url as for listing/creating objects. The request body should contain a list with identifiers for objects to be deleted. The identifier is usually the last part of the URL for deleting a single object.

It is possible to update multiple objects in one request. Use the PUT or PATCH method with the same url as for listing/creating objects. The request body should contain an object, where keys are identifiers of objects to be modified and their values use the same format as normal update.
