REST API

GridGain provides an HTTP REST client that gives you the ability to communicate with the grid over HTTP and HTTPS protocols using the REST approach. REST APIs can be used to perform different operations like read/write from/to cache, execute tasks, get various metrics, and more.

Internally, GridGain uses Jetty to provide HTTP server features. See Configuration section below for details on how to configure jetty.

Getting Started

To enable HTTP connectivity, make sure that the ignite-rest-http module is enabled. If you use the binary distribution, copy the ignite-rest-http module from IGNITE_HOME/libs/optional/ to the IGNITE_HOME/libs folder. See Enabling modules for details.

Explicit configuration is not required; the connector starts up automatically and listens on port 8080. You can check if it works with curl:

curl 'http://localhost:8080/ignite?cmd=version'

Request parameters may be provided as either a part of URL or in a form data:

curl 'http://localhost:8080/ignite?cmd=put&cacheName=myCache' -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' -d 'key=testKey&val=testValue'

Configuration

You can change HTTP server parameters as follows:

<bean class="org.apache.ignite.configuration.IgniteConfiguration" id="ignite.cfg">
    <property name="connectorConfiguration">
        <bean class="org.apache.ignite.configuration.ConnectorConfiguration">
            <property name="jettyPath" value="jetty.xml"/>
        </bean>
    </property>
</bean>
IgniteConfiguration cfg = new IgniteConfiguration();
cfg.setConnectorConfiguration(new ConnectorConfiguration().setJettyPath("jetty.xml"));
This API is not presently available for C++. You can use XML configuration.

The following table describes the properties of ConnectorConfiguration that are related to the http server:

Parameter Name Description Optional Default Value

setSecretKey(String)

Defines secret key used for client authentication. When provided, client request must contain HTTP header X-Signature with the string "[1]:[2]", where [1] is timestamp in milliseconds and [2] is the Base64 encoded SHA1 hash of the secret key.

Yes

null

setPortRange(int)

Port range for Jetty server. If the port provided in Jetty configuration or IGNITE_JETTY_PORT system property is already in use, Ignite will iteratively increment port by 1 and try binding once again until provided port range is exceeded.

Yes

100

setJettyPath(String)

Path to Jetty configuration file. Should be either absolute or relative to IGNITE_HOME. If the path is not set, GridGain will start Jetty server with a simple HTTP connector. This connector will use IGNITE_JETTY_HOST and IGNITE_JETTY_PORT system properties as host and port respectively. If IGNITE_JETTY_HOST is not provided, localhost will be used as default. If IGNITE_JETTY_PORT is not provided, port 8080 will be used as default.

Yes

null

setMessageInterceptor(ConnectorMessageInterceptor)

The interceptor provides the ability to transform all objects exchanged via REST protocol. For example, if you use custom serialisation on client you can write an interceptor to transform binary representations received from the client to Java objects and later access them from Java code directly.

Yes

null

Example Jetty XML Configuration

Path to this configuration should be set to ConnectorConfiguration.setJettyPath(String) as explained above.

Security

When authentication is configured in the cluster, all applications that use REST API request authentication by providing security credentials. The authentication request will return a session token that can be used with any command within that session.

There are two ways to request authorization:

  1. Use the authenticate command with ignite.login=[user]&ignite.password=[password] parameters.

    https://[host]:[port]/ignite?cmd=authenticate&ignite.login=[user]&ignite.password=[password]
  2. Use any REST command with ignite.login=[user]&ignite.password=[password] parameters in the path of your connection string. In our example below, we use the version command:

    http://[host]:[port]/ignite?cmd=version&ignite.login=[user]&ignite.password=[password]

    In both examples above, replace [host], [port], [user], and [password] with actual values.

Executing any one of the above strings in a browser will provide a response with a session token which will look something like this:

{"successStatus":0,"error":null,"sessionToken":"EF6013FF590348CE91DEAE9870183BEF","response":true}

Once you obtain the session token, use the sessionToken parameter with your connection string as shown in the example below:

http://[host]:[port]/ignite?cmd=top&sessionToken=[sessionToken]

In the above connection string, replace [host], [port], and [sessionToken] with actual values.

Data Types

The REST API also provides support for Java built-in types for put/get operations via keyType and valueType optional parameters. Note that unless one of the below mentioned types are explicitly specified, the REST protocol will exchange the key-value data in String format. This means that the data will be stored and retrieved to/from the cluster as a String.

REST KeyType/ValueType Corresponding Java Type

boolean

java.lang.Boolean

byte

java.lang.Byte

short

java.lang.Short

integer

java.lang.Integer

The following example shows a put command with keyType=int and valueType=date:

http://[host]:[port]/ignite?cmd=put&key=1&val=2018-01-01&cacheName=myCache&keyType=int&valueType=date

Similarly, the get command with keyType=int and valueType=date would be:

http://[host]:[port]/ignite?cmd=get&key=1&cacheName=myCache&keyType=int&valueType=date
