Monasca Events API Client Library

Project description

Python bindings to the Monasca Events API

This is a client library for Monasca built to interface with the Monasca Events API. It
provides a Python API (the ``monasca-events`` module) and a command-line tool

The Monasca Events Client was written using the OpenStack Heat Python client as a framework.

Ubuntu Install

Manual Install Steps:
- cd to your python-monasca-events repo
- sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
- python install

Command-line API
Installing this distribution gets you a shell command, ``monasca-events``, that you
can use to interact with the Events API server.


monasca-events help

monasca-events help <command>

monasca-events -j <command>

This outputs the results in json format. Normally output is in table format.

Environmental Variables

Environmental variables can be sourced, or optionally passed in as CLI arguments.
It is easiest to source them first and then use the CLI.

When token and endpoint are known::

``export OS_AUTH_TOKEN=XXX``

When using Keystone to obtain the token and endpoint::
export OS_AUTH_URL=

When using Vagrant Environment with middleware disabled::
export OS_AUTH_TOKEN=82510970543135
The Monasca Events API will treat the auth token as the tenant ID when Keystone is not enabled.

You'll find complete documentation on the shell by running
``monasca-events help``::

usage: monasca-events [-j] [--version] [-d] [-v] [-k] [--cert-file CERT_FILE]
[--key-file KEY_FILE] [--os-cacert OS_CACERT]
[--timeout TIMEOUT] [--os-username OS_USERNAME]
[--os-password OS_PASSWORD] [--os-project-id OS_PROJECT_ID]
[--os-project-name OS_PROJECT_NAME]
[--os-domain-id OS_DOMAIN_ID] [--os-domain-name OS_DOMAIN_NAME]
[--os-auth-url OS_AUTH_URL] [--os-region-name OS_REGION_NAME]
[--os-auth-token OS_AUTH_TOKEN] [--os-no-client-auth]
[--monasca-api-url MONASCA_API_URL]
[--monasca-api-version MONASCA_API_VERSION]
[--os-service-type OS_SERVICE_TYPE]
[--os-endpoint-type OS_ENDPOINT_TYPE]
<subcommand> ...

Command-line interface to the monasca-events API.
positional arguments:
help Display help about this program or one of its

optional arguments:
-j, --json output raw json response
--version Shows the client version and exits.
-d, --debug Defaults to env[MONASCA_DEBUG].
-v, --verbose Print more verbose output.
-k, --insecure Explicitly allow the client to perform "insecure" SSL
(https) requests. The server's certificate will not
be verified against any certificate authorities. This
option should be used with caution.
--cert-file CERT_FILE Path of certificate file to use in SSL connection.
This file can optionally be prepended with the
private key.
--key-file KEY_FILE Path of client key to use in SSL connection.This
option is not necessary if your key is prepended to
your cert file.
--os-cacert OS_CACERT Specify a CA bundle file to use in verifying a
TLS (https) server certificate. Defaults to
env[OS_CACERT]. Without either of these, the
client looks for the default system CA
--timeout TIMEOUT Number of seconds to wait for a response.
--os-username OS_USERNAME Defaults to env[OS_USERNAME].
--os-password OS_PASSWORD Defaults to env[OS_PASSWORD].
--os-project-id OS_PROJECT_ID
Defaults to env[OS_PROJECT_ID].
--os-project-name OS_PROJECT_NAME
Defaults to env[OS_PROJECT_NAME].
--os-domain-id OS_DOMAIN_ID
Defaults to env[OS_DOMAIN_ID].
--os-domain-name OS_DOMAIN_NAME
Defaults to env[OS_DOMAIN_NAME].
--os-auth-url OS_AUTH_URL Defaults to env[OS_AUTH_URL].
--os-region-name OS_REGION_NAME
Defaults to env[OS_REGION_NAME].
--os-auth-token OS_AUTH_TOKEN
Defaults to env[OS_AUTH_TOKEN].
--os-no-client-auth Do not contact keystone for a token. Defaults to
--monasca-api-url MONASCA_API_URL
Defaults to env[MONASCA_API_URL].
--monasca-api-version MONASCA_API_VERSION
Defaults to env[MONASCA_API_VERSION] or 2_0
--os-service-type OS_SERVICE_TYPE
Defaults to env[OS_SERVICE_TYPE].
--os-endpoint-type OS_ENDPOINT_TYPE
Defaults to env[OS_ENDPOINT_TYPE].
