Metadata Definitions Service API v2 (CURRENT)

Metadata Definitions Service API v2 (CURRENT)

Metadefs

General information

The Metadata Definitions Service (“metadefs”, for short) provides a common API for vendors, operators, administrators, services, and users to meaningfully define available key:value pairs that can be used on different types of cloud resources (for example, images, artifacts, volumes, flavors, aggregates, and other resources).

To get you started, Glance contains a default catalog of metadefs that may be installed at your site; see the README in the code repository for details.

Once a common catalog of metadata definitions has been created, the catalog is available for querying through the API. Note that this service stores only the catalog, because metadefs are meta-metadata. Metadefs provide information about resource metadata, but do not themselves serve as actual metadata.

Actual key:value pairs are stored on the resources to which they apply using the metadata facilities provided by the appropriate API. (For example, the Images API would be used to put specific key:value pairs on a virtual machine image.)

A metadefs definition includes a property’s key, its description, its constraints, and the resource types to which it can be associated. See Metadata Definition Concepts in the Glance Developer documentation for more information.

Metadata definition namespaces

Creates, lists, shows details for, updates, and deletes metadata definition namespaces. Defines namespaces that can contain property definitions, object definitions, and resource type associations.

Since API v2.2

POST
/v2/metadefs/namespaces

Create namespace

Creates a namespace.

A namespace must be unique across all users. Attempting to create an already existing namespace will result in a 409 (Conflict) response.

The Location response header contains the newly-created URI for the namespace.

Normal response codes: 201

Error response codes: 400, 401, 403, 409

Request

Name In Type Description
namespace body string An identifier (a name) for the namespace. The value must be unique across all users.
display_name (Optional) body string User-friendly name to use in a UI to display the namespace name.
description (Optional) body string The description of the namespace.
visibility (Optional) body enum The namespace visibility. A valid value is public or private. Default is private.
protected (Optional) body boolean Namespace protection for deletion. A valid value is true or false. Default is false.

The request body may also contain properties, objects, and resource type associations, or these can be added later by the Update namespace call.

Request Example

{
    "namespace": "FredCo::SomeCategory::Example",
    "display_name": "An Example Namespace",
    "description": "A metadata definitions namespace for example use.",
    "visibility": "public",
    "protected": true
}

Response Parameters

Name In Type Description
Location header string The newly-created URI for the namespace.
created_at body string

The date and time when the resource was created.

The date and time stamp format is ISO 8601.

description (Optional) body string The description of the namespace.
display_name (Optional) body string User-friendly name to use in a UI to display the namespace name.
namespace body string An identifier (a name) for the namespace. The value must be unique across all users.
owner body string An identifier for the owner of this resource, usually the tenant ID.
protected body boolean Namespace protection for deletion, either true or false.
schema body string The URI of the JSON schema describing a namespace.
self body string The URI for this resource.
updated_at body string

The date and time when the resource was last updated.

The date and time stamp format is ISO 8601.

visibility body enum The namespace visibility, either public or private.

If the request body contained properties, objects, or resource type associations, these will be included in the response.

}
GET
/v2/metadefs/namespaces

List namespaces

Lists available namespaces.

Returns a list of namespaces to which the authenticated user has access. If the list is too large to fit in a single response, either because of operator configuration or because you’ve included a limit query parameter in the request to restrict the response size, the response will contain a link that you can use to get the next page of namespaces. Check for the presence of a next link and use it as the URI in a subsequent HTTP GET request. Follow this pattern until a next link is no longer provided.

The next link preserves any query parameters that you send in your initial request. You can use the first link to return to the first page in the collection. If you prefer to paginate through namespaces manually, use the limit and marker parameters.

The list operation accepts the resource_types and visibility query parameters, which you can use to filter the response.

To sort the results of this operation, use the sort_key and sort_dir parameters. The API uses the natural sorting order in the namespace attribute that you provide as the sort_key parameter.

Normal response codes: 200

Error response codes: 401, 403, 404

Request

Name In Type Description
limit (Optional) query integer Requests a page size of items. Returns a number of items up to a limit value. Use the limit parameter to make an initial limited request and use the ID of the last-seen item from the response as the marker parameter value in a subsequent limited request.
marker (Optional) query string Allows specification of a namespace identifier. When present, only namespaces occurring after that namespace will be listed, that is, those namespaces having a sort_key later than that of the marker in the sort_dir direction.
visibility (Optional) query string Filters the response by a namespace visibility value. A valid value is public or private. If you omit this parameter, the response shows both public and private namespaces.
resource_types (Optional) query integer Filters the response to include only those namespaces that contain the specified resource type or types as resource type associations. Use the comma (,) character to separate multiple values. For example, OS::Glance::Image,OS::Nova::Flavor shows only namespaces associated with these resource types.
sort_key (Optional) query string Sorts the response by an attribute. Accepted values are namespace, created_at, and updated_at. Default is created_at.
sort_dir (Optional) query string Sorts the response. Use asc for ascending or desc for descending order. The default is desc.

Response Parameters

Name In Type Description
first body string The URI for the first page of response.
namespaces body array A list of namespace objects.
next body string The URI for the next page of response. Will not be present on the last page of the response.
schema body string The URI of the JSON schema describing a namespaces entity, that is, an entity consisting of a list of abbreviated namespace objects.

GET
/v2/metadefs/namespaces/{namespace_name}

Get namespace details

Gets details for a namespace.

The response body shows a single namespace entity with all details including properties, objects, and resource type associations.

If the namespace contains a resource type association that specifies a prefix, you may optionally include the name of the resource type as a query parameter. In that case, the prefix will be applied to all property names in the response. (See below for an example.)

PUT
/v2/metadefs/namespaces/{namespace_name}

Update namespace

Updates a namespace.

Note

Be careful using this call, especially when all you want to do is change the protected value so that you can delete some objects, properties, or resource type associations in the namespace.

While only the namespace is required in the request body, if this call is made with only the namespace in request body, the other attributes listed below will be set to their default values – which in the case of description and display_name, is null.

So if you want to change only the protected value with this call, be sure to also include the current values of the following parameters in the request body:

  • description
  • display_name
  • namespace
  • visibility

The objects, properties, and resource type associations in a namespace are unaffected by this call.

DELETE
/v2/metadefs/namespaces/{namespace_name}

Delete namespace

Deletes a namespace and its properties, objects, and any resource type associations.

Note

If the namespace is protected, that is, if the protected attribute of the namespace is true, then you must first set the protected attribute to false on the namespace before you will be permitted to delete it.

  • If you try to delete a protected namespace, the call returns the 403 response code.
  • To change the protected attribute of a namespace, use the Update namespace call.

A successful operation returns the HTTP 204 (No Content) response code.

Create resource type association

Creates a resource type association between a namespace and the resource type specified in the body of the request.

Note

If the resource type name specified does not name an existing resource type, a new resource type will be created as a side effect of this operation.

Normal response codes: 201

Error response codes: 400, 401, 403, 404, 409

Request

Name In Type Description
namespace_name path string The name of the namespace whose details you want to see. (The name is the value of a namespace’s namespace field.)
name path string Name of the resource type. A Name is limited to 80 chars in length.
prefix (Optional) body string Prefix for any properties in the namespace that you want to apply to the resource type. If you specify a prefix, you must append a prefix separator, such as the colon (:) character.
properties_target (Optional) body string Some resource types allow more than one key and value pair for each instance. For example, the Image service allows both user and image metadata on volumes. The properties_target parameter enables a namespace target to remove the ambiguity.

Remove resource type association

Removes a resource type association in a namespace.

Note

If the namespace containing the association is protected, that is, if the protected attribute of the namespace is true, then you must first set the protected attribute to false on the namespace before you will be permitted to remove the resource type association.

  • If you try to delete a resource type association from a protected namespace, the call returns the 403 response code.
  • To change the protected attribute of a namespace, use the Update namespace call.

When you successfully delete a resource type association from a namespace, the response is empty and the response code is 204.

GET
/v2/metadefs/namespaces/{namespace_name}/objects

List objects

Lists object definitions in a namespace.

Returns a subset of the larger collection of namespaces and a link that you can use to get the next set of namespaces. You should always check for the presence of a next link and use it as the URI in a subsequent HTTP GET request. You should follow this pattern until a next link is no longer provided. The next link preserves any query parameters that you send in your initial request. You can use the first link to jump back to the first page of the collection. If you prefer to paginate through namespaces manually, use the limit and marker parameters.

Use the resource_types and visibility query parameters to filter the response.

For example, set the resource_types query parameter to OS::Glance::Image,OS::Nova::Flavor to filter the response to include only namespaces that are associated with the given resource types.

You can sort the results of this operation by using the sort_key and sort_dir parameters. The API uses the natural sorting of whatever namespace attribute is provided as the sort_key.

Request

Name In Type Description
namespace_name path string The name of the namespace whose details you want to see. (The name is the value of a namespace’s namespace field.)
visibility (Optional) query string Filters the response by a namespace visibility value. A valid value is public or private. If you omit this parameter, the response shows both public and private namespaces.
resource_types (Optional) query integer Filters the response to include only those namespaces that contain the specified resource type or types as resource type associations. Use the comma (,) character to separate multiple values. For example, OS::Glance::Image,OS::Nova::Flavor shows only namespaces associated with these resource types.
sort_key (Optional) query string Sorts the response by an attribute. Accepted values are namespace, created_at, and updated_at. Default is created_at.
sort_dir (Optional) query string Sorts the response. Use asc for ascending or desc for descending order. The default is desc.

Update object

Updates an object definition in a namespace.

The object resource is completely replaced by what you specify in the request body. Thus, if you leave out any of the optional parameters, and they exist in the current object, they will be eliminated by this call.

It is possible to change the name of the object with this call; if you do, note that the URL for the object (specified by the self field) will change.

Delete tag definition

Deletes a tag definition within a namespace.

Note

If the namespace containing the tag is protected, that is, if the protected attribute of the namespace is true, then you must first set the protected attribute to false on the namespace before you will be permitted to delete the tag.

  • If you try to delete a tag from a protected namespace, the call returns the 403 response code.
  • To change the protected attribute of a namespace, use the Update namespace call.

When you successfully delete a tag from a namespace, the response is empty and the response code is 204.

List tags

Lists the tag definitions within a namespace.

To manually paginate through the list of tags, use the limit and marker parameters.

To sort the results of this operation use the sort_key and sort_dir parameters. The API uses the natural sort order of the tag attribute of the sort_key parameter.

Request

Name In Type Description
namespace_name path string The name of the namespace whose details you want to see. (The name is the value of a namespace’s namespace field.)
limit (Optional) query integer Requests a page size of tags. Returns a number of tags up to a limit value. Use the limit parameter to make an initial limited request and use the name of the last-seen tag from the response as the marker parameter value in a subsequent limited request.
marker (Optional) query string Allows specification of a tag name. When present, only tags occurring after the named tag will be listed, that is, those namespaces having a sort_key later than that of the marker in the sort_dir direction.
sort_key (Optional) query string Sorts the response by an attribute. Accepted values are name, created_at, and updated_at. Default is created_at.
sort_dir (Optional) query string Sorts the response. Use asc for ascending or desc for descending order. The default is desc.

There is no request body.

Response Parameters
