Example

If we had a Project in our database with the name 'Project1' with the following attributes:

Project - "Project1"
{
   "priority": 1,
   "projectName": "Project1",
   "description": "Our thoughts become our words. Our words become our actions.",
   "applicationId": 10001,
   "priorityScope": "Application",
   "partialDeployment": false,
   "isActive": true,
   "scmType": "NONE",
   "streams": [
      10802,
      10803,
      10804,
      10805
   ],
   "deployWorkflowId": 10873,
   "deployInstanceIds": [
      11153,
      11168,
      11183,
      11198,
      11213,
      11228,
      11243
   ],
   "buildWorkflowId": 10869,
   "buildInstanceId": 11153,
   "projectType": null
}

When we run a GET request at the following URL:

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/project/10002

The GET request would return the  following JSON project object

   "priority": 1,

   "applicationId": 10001,

}

Get(Using Query Parameters)

This GET service will find a project by querying based on a name and application id and return the JSON representations of the objects. If no query parameters are given this request will return the entire list of projects.

API URLs

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/project?
Append the following character sequences to the above URL to specify Query parameters. Use '&' between successive query parameters:

projectName={name}

applicationId={applicationid}

folderPath={folderPath}

folderPath Format

  • Path parameters are separated by slashes(forward or backward).
  • Trailing slashes will be ignored.
  • Single leading slashes are ignored.
  • To access a folder or application, it's full path from the project archive root folder must be used.
  • A shorted path is valid, but will return more results.
  • The project archive root folder is an optional path parameter.
  • Folders and applications are considered path parameters.
  • Forward and backward slashes are accepted
  • Project names are not considered path parameters. For example,
    • The folderPath used to access the 'AccountingApps' application :
    • /Flexdeploy/CommerceProjects/AccountingApps/
      • or
    • CommerceProjects\AccountingApps
    • i.e. you can omit FlexDeploy at start of folderPath
Examples:
  • To search by name only: http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/project?projectName={name}
  • To search by group only: http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/project?applicationId={applicationid}
  • To search by folderPathonly: http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/project?folderPath={folderPath}
  • To search by name and applicationId: http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/project?projectName={name}&applicationId={applicationid}

The query parameters are not case sensitive. Searching by projectName=NAME is the same as searching by projectName=name.

POST

Execute Utility Project (Using Id)

This POST service will perform the same action found on the Execute Utility Project Request Form off the project screen. It will initiate a request to execute the project with the Project ID specified in the URL. The service will return the workflowRequestId which can be used by the getWorkflowRequestStatus call to determine when the workflow is complete.
