Performing Requests

Administrative REST routes require that you specify certain administration headers.
Each module exposes its administrative routes under /moduleName/.

Route Documentation

Conduit automatically generates OpenAPI schemas for all of your routes to be used by Swagger.
This means your administrative REST API is fully documented and even available for interaction through Swagger UI.
You may always locate your Swagger UI pages and grab the exported JSON files through the Admin Panel.

Notice: Make sure you grab the exported files after bringing up and configuring all of your target modules so that they include all the relevant routes and updated params.


Let's go through a couple examples, shall we?
We'll be using curl for this in order to make sure everyone can follow along, but you can send your requests any way you like.

We'll start by sending an administrative login request.

Admin Login
curl --location --request POST 'http://localhost:3030/login' \
--header 'masterkey: M4ST3RK3Y' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data-raw '{
"username": "admin",
"password": "admin"
"token": "eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpZCI6IjYyMmYxZGQ5NThkZDIwMDAxNzgwNWVmYyIsImlhdCI6MTY0NzM0MjMwMiwiZXhwIjoxNjQ3NDE0MzAyfQ.trHYfxt9Wf6ohgi5PWez-dZEDaQSBBR6wu2PINveQmI"

Great, that got us, uh, a quite long string of non-sense characters?
Is that thing broken or what? Oh yeah, that's right, a token thing, I've watched people talk about these on YouTube.
Does that mean I've got my very own NFT now?

Nah, but on the bright side, it should let you access your very own set of administrative routes!
Let's put that token to use and send an authenticated admin request to the Database module.
We pass it along as the Authorization header, prefixed by Bearer.
That one should return all of the schemas owned by Database or Authentication.

Retrieving Database Schemas
curl --location --request GET 'http://localhost:3030/database/schemas/?enabled=true&owner=database,authentication' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpZCI6IjYyMmYxZGQ5NThkZDIwMDAxNzgwNWVmYyIsImlhdCI6MTY0NzM0MjMwMiwiZXhwIjoxNjQ3NDE0MzAyfQ.trHYfxt9Wf6ohgi5PWez-dZEDaQSBBR6wu2PINveQmI' \
--header 'masterkey: M4ST3RK3Y'
