Source Control Management Instance API

SCM Instances can be accessed and modified through this API using four services: GET, POST, PUT, and PATCH. These four services allow for the retrieval, creation, complete update, and partial update of SCM Instances.

Authentication - Use Basic Authentication for this API.

Currently there are 8 different source control management types that are supported in Flex Deploy. The scmType value is shown after the name of each.

GET

There are two implementations of GET. One will find a SCM instance with the given Id and return the JSON representation of the SCM instance. The other will find a list of SCM instances matching the parameters supplied to it.

GET (Using Id)

This GET service will find a SCM instance with the given Id and return the JSON representation of the object.

API URL

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/topology/integrations/scminstance/{Id}

Request

Description

Id

YesURLThis is a URL parameter for the Id which is used to find and return a SCM instance with.

Response

AttributesTypeDescription
instanceIdLongThis is an id of the SCM Instance.
instanceCodeStringThis is a code of the SCM instance.
instanceNameStringThis is the unique name of the SCM instance.
scmTypeStringThis is the SCM type of the SCM instance.
isActiveBooleanThis is a Boolean that tracks whether or not the SCM instance is active.

Example

If we had a SCM instance in our database with an Id of 11101 and had the following attributes

SCM Instance - 11101
{
   "instanceId": 11101,
   "instanceName": "ScmName1",
   "properties":    [
            {
         "propertyName": "FDGIT_URL",

GET (Using Query Parameters)

This GET service will find a SCM instance by querying based on a name, code, and/or type of the SCM and return the JSON representations of the objects. If no query parameters are given this request will return the entire list of SCM instances.

API URLs

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/topology/integrations/scminstance?

Append the following character sequences to the above URL to specify Query parameters.
Use '&' between successive query parameters: 

instanceName={name}

instanceCode={code}

scmType={type}

Examples:
To search by code only:

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/topology/integrations/scminstance?instanceCode={code}

To search by name only:

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/topology/integrations/scminstance?instanceName={name}

To search by type and name:

http://host:port/flexdeploy/rest/v1/topology/scminstance?scmType={type}&instanceName={name}

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