API

General Notes

Arches allows any parameters to be passed in via custom HTTP headers OR via the querystring. All requests to secure services require users to pass a “Bearer” token in the authentication header

To use a an HTTP header to pass in a parameter use the form:

HTTP-X-ARCHES-{upper case parameter name}.

So, for example, these are equivelent requests

curl -H "X-ARCHES-FORMAT: json-ld" http://localhost:8000/mobileprojects

curl http://localhost:8000/mobileprojects?format=json-ld

If both a custom header and querystring with the same name are provided, then the querystring parameter takes precedence.

In the following example “html” will be used as the value for the “format” parameter.

curl -H "X-ARCHES-FORMAT: json-ld" http://localhost:8000/mobileprojects?format=html

Note

Querystring parameters are case sensitive. Behind the scenes, custom header parameters are converted to lower case querystring parameters.

In the following example there are 3 different parameters (“format”, “FORMAT”, and “Format”) with 3 different values (“html”, “json”, and “xml”) respectively

http://localhost:8000/mobileprojects?format=html&FORMAT=json&Format=xml

Authentication

Most Arches API endpoints require an OAuth access token.

OAuth 2.0 is a simple and secure authentication mechanism. It allows applications to acquire an access token for Arches via a quick redirect to the Arches site. Once an application has an access token, it can access a user’s resources on Arches. to authenticate with OAuth you must first Register an OAuth Application.

POST /o/token

gets an OAuth token given a username, password, and client id

Note

You should only make this call once and store the returned token securely. You should not make this call per request or at any other high-frequency interval.

This token is to be used with clients registered with the “Resource Owner Password Credentials Grant” type see Register an OAuth Application for more information on registering an application

For additional information see https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6749#section-4.3

Form Parameters
  • username – a users username (or email)

  • password – a users password

  • grant_type – “password”

  • client_id – the registered applications client id, see Register an OAuth Application

Status Codes
  • 401 Unauthorized – there’s no user or the user has been deactivated, or the client id is invalid

Example request:

curl -X POST http://localhost:8000/o/token/ -d "username=admin&password=admin&grant_type=password&client_id=onFiQSbPfgZpsUcl2fBvaaEHA58MKHavl3iuSaRf"

Example response:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: application/json

{
    "access_token": "TS3pE2bEXRCAkRls4IGKCVVa0Zv6FE",
    "token_type": "Bearer",
    "expires_in": 36000,
    "refresh_token": "y3rzXKf8dXdb25ayMMVIligTkqEKr0",
    "scope": "read write"
}

returned when an invalid username or password is supplied

HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
Content-Type: application/json


{"error_description": "Invalid credentials given.", "error": "invalid_grant"}

returned when an invalid client id is supplied, or the registerd client is not “public” or the grant type used to register the client isn’t “Resource Owner Password Credentials Grant”

HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
Content-Type: application/json

{"error": "invalid_client"}

Concepts

GET /rdm/concepts/{uuid:concept instance id}

gets a single rdm concept instance

Query Parameters
  • format – {“json”}

  • indent – number of spaces to indent json output

  • includesubconcepts – option to include sub concepts in the return

  • includeparentconcepts – option to include parent concepts in the return

  • includerelatedconcepts – option to include related concepts in the return

Request Headers

GeoJSON

GET /geojson

returns a GeoJSON representation of resource instance data; this will include metadata properties when using paging for “_page” (number) and “_lastPage” (boolean). Returned features will include integer ids that are only assured to be unique per request.

NOTE: when not using the “use_uuid_names” parameter, field names will use the export field name provided for a given node (via the Graph Designer). If the export field name is not defined, the API will attempt to create a suitable field name from the node name. Property names that clash as a result of the above, or shortening via “field_name_length” will have their values joined together.

WARNING: including primary names has a big impact on performance and is best defered to an additional request

Query Parameters
  • resourceid – optional comma delimited list of resource instance UUIDs to filter feature data on

  • nodeid – optional node UUID to filter feature data on

  • tileid – optional tile UUID to filter feature data on

  • nodegroups – optional comma delimited list of nodegroup UUIDs from which to include tile data as properties.

  • precision – optional number of decimal places returned in coordinate values; used to constrain resultant data volume

  • field_name_length – optional number to limit property field length to

  • use_uuid_names – include this parameter to return tile property names as node UUIDs.

  • include_primary_name – include this parameter to include resource instance primary names in feature properties.

  • use_display_values – include this parameter to return tile values processed to be human readable

  • include_geojson_link – include this parameter to include a link to this specific feature in its properties fit for reuse later

  • indent – optional number of spaces with which to indent the JSON return (ie “pretty print”)

  • type – optional geometry type name to filter features on

  • limit – optional number of tiles to process; used to page data. NOTE: as paging is per tile, the count of features in the response may differ from this limit value

  • page – optional number of page (starting with 1) to return; used in conjunction with “limit”

Example request:

curl -X GET http://localhost:8000/geojson?nodegroups=8d41e4ab-a250-11e9-87d1-00224800b26d,8d41e4c0-a250-11e9-a7e3-00224800b26d&nodeid=8d41e4d6-a250-11e9-accd-00224800b26d&use_display_values=true&indent=2&limit=3
