cURL Example 1

Ingesting a single entry

  • in the index 4de0e89e-a395-11e7-bc54-8c705ad34f60

  • with a subject of https://example.com/foo/bar

  • with a null entry_id

  • public visibility

curl -XPOST 'https://search.api.globus.org/v1/index/4de0e89e-a395-11e7-bc54-8c705ad34f60/ingest' \ # <1>
    --data '{
      "ingest_type": "GMetaEntry", # <2>
      "ingest_data": {
        "subject": "https://example.com/foo/bar",
        "visible_to": ["public"],
        "content": { # <3>
          "foo/bar": "some val"
        }
      }
    }'
  1. The Index ID is provided in the URL

  2. The datatype of the ingest_data document in GMetaEntry for a single entry

  3. content is an arbitrary JSON body

cURL Example 2

Ingesting a list of entries

  • in the index 4de0e89e-a395-11e7-bc54-8c705ad34f60

  • with subject values of https://example.com/foo/bar and https://example.com/foo/bar/baz

  • with entry_id values of null, "alpha", and "beta"

  • public visibility and visibility only to the user globus@globus.org

    • The ID of globus@globus.org is 46bd0f56-e24f-11e5-a510-131bef46955c, so this is the value which will be used

curl -XPOST 'https://search.api.globus.org/v1/index/4de0e89e-a395-11e7-bc54-8c705ad34f60/ingest' \
    --data '{
      "ingest_type": "GMetaList", # <1>
      "ingest_data": {
        "gmeta": [ # <2>
          { # <3>
            "subject": "https://example.com/foo/bar",
            "visible_to": ["public"],
            "content": {
              "foo/bar": "some val"
          },
          {
            "subject": "https://example.com/foo/bar",
            "id": "alpha",
            "visible_to": [
              "urn:globus:auth:identity:46bd0f56-e24f-11e5-a510-131bef46955c" # <4>
            ],
            "content": {
              "foo/bar": "some otherval"
            }
          },
          {
            "subject": "https://example.com/foo/bar/baz",
            "id": "alpha",
            "visible_to": [
              "urn:globus:auth:identity:46bd0f56-e24f-11e5-a510-131bef46955c"
            ],
            "content": {
              "foo/bar/baz": "some val"
            }

            "subject": "https://example.com/foo/bar/baz",
            "id": "beta",
            "visible_to": ["public"],
            "content": {
              "foo/bar/baz": "some otherval"
            }
          }
        ]
      }
    }'
  1. This time, the ingest_data is of type GMetaList

  2. GMetaList.gmeta is an array of GMetaEntry documents

  3. This entry does not specify an id, so its entry_id is null

  4. This notation is a Principal URN
