API

So this week I started tinkering with the cloud foundry API. In all honesty I did have to get a little help from one of our developers because I was doing something wrong. Forgetting that in my lab I don’t have trusted certificates I wasn’t using a flag in the headers below to ignore that. Anyway just a slight glitch.

First you need to get your endpoint URL by asking for info from your CF API

 

Get Endpoint:

Get https://API.pcfsys.domain.local/info

This should give you a payload with the endpoint listed. Using the endpoint url now post a payload like the one below substituting your domain and your admin user/password.

 

Get token:

POST https://login.pcfsys.domain.local/oauth/token

Headers:

Content-Type:application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Accept:application/json;charset=utf-8

Authorization:Basic Y2Y6

X-UAA-Endpoint:https://login.domain.local

rejectUnauthorized:false

requestCert:false

agent:false

Body:

grant_type=password&username=admin&password=somepassword

 

At this point you should be presented with payload with your access token listed. Now you can use the access token to Get stuff. Like a list of the CF orgs.

 

List orgs:

Get https://API.pcfsys.domain.local/v2/organizations

Headers:

Accept:application/json;charset=utf-8

Authorization:bearer eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1…………..

 

List Spaces:

Get https://API.pcfsys.domain.local/v2/spaces

Headers = same as orgs

 

List Apps:

Get https://API.pcfsys.domain.local/v2/apps

Headers = same as orgs

 

List Users:

Get https://API.pcfsys.domain.local/v2/users

Headers = same as orgs

 

OK how about something a bit more like a query? How about we list all the space for a given user?

When you called the list of users you should be presented with a payload that also includes the guid for each user. Using this guid you can list the spaces for that user.

 

List spaces for specific user using the guid:

Get https://API.pcfsys.domain.local/v2/users/94aa5e3b-86e1-4ca0-90b1-4734d6555ef2/spaces

Headers = same as orgs

 

Simple right… watch this space for more on the Cloud Foundry API
