drydock_client - client for drydock_provisioner RESTful API

The drydock_client module can be used to access a remote (or local) Drydock REST API server. It supports tokenized authentication and marking API calls with an external context marker for log aggregation.

It is composed of two parts - a DrydockSession which denotes the call context for the API and a DrydockClient which gives access to actual API calls.

Simple Usage

The usage pattern for drydock_client is to build a DrydockSession with your credentials and the target host. Then use this session to build a DrydockClient to make one or more API calls. The DrydockSession will care for TCP connection pooling and header management:

import drydock_provisioner.drydock_client.client as client
import drydock_provisioner.drydock_client.session as session

dd_session = session.DrydockSession('host.com', port=9000, token='abc123')
dd_client = client.DrydockClient(dd_session)

drydock_task = dd_client.get_task('ba44e582-6b26-11e7-81cc-080027ef795a')

Create a new design. Optionally provide a new base design (by UUID-formatted design_id) that the new design uses as the starting state. Receive back a UUID-formatted string of design_id


Get the attributes of a particular design part. Provide the design_id the part is loaded in, the kind (one of Region, NetworkLink, Network, HardwareProfile, HostProfile or BaremetalNode and the part key (i.e. name). You can provide the kwarg ‘source’ with the value of ‘compiled’ to see the site design after inheritance is applied.


Parse a provided YAML string and load the parts into the provided design context


Get a list of all task ids


Get the attributes of the task identified by the provided task_id


Create a task to execute the provided action on the provided design context
