Given below is the RESTful API for the export functionality. It is secured using Basic Authentication.


ParameterDescription

URI

https://<host-name>:9443/api-import-export-<product-version>-<tool-version>/export-api

Query parameters

name=<api_name>&version=<api_version>&provider=<provider_name>

HTTP method

GET

Examples

curl -H "Authorization:Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=" -X GET "https://localhost:9443/api-import-export-2.1.0-v11/export-api?name=test&version=1.0.0&provider=admin"

It gives a data stream as the output. To download it as a zipped archive, use the following command:

curl -H "Authorization:Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=" -X GET "https://localhost:9443/api-import-export-2.1.0-v11/export-api?name=test&version=1.0.0&provider=admin"  -k > exportedApi.zip

To verify the output status of the API call:

curl -v -H "Authorization:Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=" -X GET "https://localhost:9443/api-import-export-2.1.0-v11/export-api?name=test&version=1.0.0&provider=admin"  -k > exportedApi.zip

The import functionality

The import functionality uploads the exported ZIP file of the API to the target environment. It creates a new API with all the registry and database resources exported from the source environment. Note the following:

  • The lifecycle status of an imported API will always be CREATED even when the original API in the source environment has a different state. This is to enable the importer to modify the API before publishing it.
  • Tiers and sequences are provider-specific. If an exported tier is not already available in the imported environment, that tier is not added to the new environment. However, if an exported sequence is not available in the imported environment, it is added.
  • The importer can decide whether to keep the original provider’s name or replace it. Set the preserveProvider parameter to true to keep it. If you set it to false, the original provider is replaced by the user who is sending the cURL command.
  • Once the APIs are imported, in order to make a particular version of an API the default in a group of different versions, select the Make this the Default Version checkbox before publishing the API
  • Cross-tenant imports are not allowed by preserving the original provider. For example, if an API is exported from tenant A and imported to tenant B, the valve of the preserveProvider parameter must always be false.
     
Given below is the RESTful API for the import functionality.


ParameterDescription

URI

https://<host>:9443/api-import-export-<product-version>-<tool-version>/import-api

Query parameters

preserveProvider=<true|false>

HTTP method

POST

Example

Imports the API with the original provider preserved: curl -H "Authorization:Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=" -F [email protected]"full/path/to/the/zip/file" -k -X POST "https://localhost:9443/api-import-export-2.1.0-v11/import-api"

Imports the API with the provider set to the current user: curl -H "Authorization:Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=" -F [email protected]"full/path/to/the/zip/file" -k -X POST "https://localhost:9443/api-import-export-2.1.0-v11/import-api?preserveProvider=false"
