Description Dan Callaghan 2014-07-29 04:41:41 UTC
Since Beaker 0.15 for new client commands we have been adding "private"/undocumented HTTP APIs in the RESTful style, rather than continuing to add more XMLRPC methods.

Now that those APIs have been stable for a few releases (and are beginning to be used in spite of their undocumented status) we should document them and make them officially stable.

Comment 1 Dan Callaghan 2014-07-29 04:44:39 UTC
I think the only ones we have so far in 0.17 are:

POST /systems/<fqdn>/loans/
PUT /systems/<fdqn>/loans/+current
GET,PUT /systems/<fqdn>/access-policy
POST,DELETE /systems/<fqdn>/access-policy/rules/
GET /systems/<fdqn>/status

There are a bunch more which will be added for new-system-page (bug 1014438) as well.

Comment 3 Nick Coghlan 2014-09-24 10:34:32 UTC
As folks are starting to use these now, it would be good to get them properly documented for Beaker 19.
