The Registry REST API allows you to work with registry resources such as comments, properties, and tags. The API uses the GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE operations of the well-defined HTTP protocol to do CRUD operation via any REST client. Google Chrome's Advanced REST client is one of the client tools used to test the functionality of the Registry REST API.

The Registry REST API is one of many APIs supported by the WSO2 Governance Registry. Read more on Supported APIs and Standards for a complete list of APIs supported by WSO2 Governance Registry.

Security

The Registry REST API is secured with a Basic Auth access token. You can invoke the rest API with the Basic Auth header

Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4= where the format is Authorization: Basic {base64encoded(username:password)}

URI syntax

Each API is constructed as a URI. For example, to get all the comments, the syntax is: 

http://{ip:port}/{context}/{version}/comments?path={resource path}&start={start page}&size={no of records}

The prefix of each URI contains the following elements:

  • ip - IP address of the Governance Registry

  • port -  Port at which the Governance Registry is running.
  • context - Context of REST API invocation. By default it is "resource".
  • version - Since it is the initial version of the REST API, it is denoted as "1.0.0"

Here is a sample request that gets all the comments:

curl -X GET -H "Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=" -H "Cache-Control: no-cache" "https://localhost:9443/resource/1.0.0/comments?path=/_system/governance/trunk/soapservices/com/amazon/soap/1.0.0/AmazonSearchService" -i -k
