This page lists the major RESTful APIs provided by Kylin.

Authentication

POST /kylin/api/user/authentication

Request Header

Authorization data encoded by basic auth is needed in the header, such as:
Authorization:Basic {data}

Response Body

  • userDetails - Defined authorities and status of current user.

Response Sample

{  
   "userDetails":{  
      "password":null,
      "username":"sample",
      "authorities":[  
         {  
            "authority":"ROLE_ANALYST"
         },
         {  
            "authority":"ROLE_MODELER"
         }
      ],
      "accountNonExpired":true,
      "accountNonLocked":true,
      "credentialsNonExpired":true,
      "enabled":true
   }
}

Curl Example

curl -c /path/to/cookiefile.txt -X POST -H "Authorization: Basic XXXXXXXXX" -H 'Content-Type: application/json' http://<host>:<port>/kylin/api/user/authentication

If login successfully, the JSESSIONID will be saved into the cookie file; In the subsequent http requests, attach the cookie, for example:

curl -b /path/to/cookiefile.txt -X PUT -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"startTime":'1423526400000', "endTime":'1423526400', "buildType":"BUILD"}' http://<host>:<port>/kylin/api/cubes/your_cube/build

Alternatively, you can provide the username/password with option “user” in each curl call; please note this has the risk of password leak in shell history:

curl -X PUT --user ADMIN:KYLIN -H "Content-Type: application/json;charset=utf-8" -d '{ "startTime": 820454400000, "endTime": 821318400000, "buildType": "BUILD"}' http://localhost:7070/kylin/api/cubes/kylin_sales/build
