Rest API (version 11)

Table of contents

Introduction

Rest API is located in /api/ path of the deployed application. For instance, Rest API of pdmap project that can be browsed using http://pdmap.uni.lu/minerva/ will be located here: http://pdmap.uni.lu/minerva/api/

Rest API tries to follow API Design Guide by Google.

All API calls (except login) must include MINERVA_AUTH_TOKEN obtained due login process.

QuickStart guide

To use API first we need to login: curl -X POST -c - --data "login=anonymous&password=" http://pg-sandbox.uni.lu/minerva/api/doLogin

localhost       FALSE   /       FALSE   1496934071      MINERVA_AUTH_TOKEN      xxxxxxxx

The response creates an authentication token and puts it into a cookie MINERVA_AUTH_TOKEN=xxxxxxxx. When using console curl command this cookie must be attached to every query that follows. When we have authentication token we can access information about December release of PD map project: ` curl -X GET –cookie “MINERVA_AUTH_TOKEN=xxxxxxxx” http://pg-sandbox.uni.lu/minerva/api/projects/pdmap_dec15/ `

Specification
