Riak tool

Project Description

This is a helper script for interacting with Riak.

Before you begin using this utility, you should know that it was written to interact not just with Riak, but with a specific instantiaion of Riak used to support the Enstratius cloud management software suite.

There are methods available here, such as --elevate-api-key that have no meaning outside of the context of an installation of Riak to support the Enstratius cloud management software suite.

While this script was written to interact with Riak supporting Enstratius, the script itself is in no way endorsed or supported by Enstratius or Dell Software.

Word of warning

By using this script you are violating the datamunging warning set by John Vincent in his Riak overview. Proceed at your own risk.

Installation

sudo easy_install riak-cli-tool

or

sudo pip install riak-cli-tool

Secondary Indices

Enstratius makes heavy use of secondary indices. This scrip is supposed to find, save, and utilize existing secondary indices when updating bucket contents that have them in place.

This is not well tested.

Configuration Files

None. You’ll want to add an export statement to your profile:

export riak_host='127.0.0.1'

and make sure it is sourced before attempting to use the utility.

The port is set to 8098.

Commands

List all buckets

THIS IS A BAD IDEA, USUALLY.

es-riak --list-buckets

{
    "buckets": [
        "content_template",
        "configuration_management_system",
        "frontend_configuration"
    ]
}

List all keys in a bucket

THIS IS A BAD IDEA, USUALLY.

es-riak --list-keys -b content_template

{
    "keys": [
        "passwordChangeSubject",
        "optimusEngineEmail",
        "changeAccountData_en"
    ]
}

Show the contents of a bucket

es-riak --show -b frontend_configuration -k 1

{
    "SCHEMA_VERSION": "0",
    "autoProvisionUsers": "true",
    "defaultAuthenticationMethod": "NATIVE",
    "defaultGroupIds": [],
    "forceDefaultAuthentication": "true",
    "forceDeny": [],
    "masterNetworkId": 999,
    "systemName": "Enstratius"
}

Save the contents of a bucket/key to a file:

es-riak --save save_file.json -b frontend_configuration -k 1

Saved contents of:

  http://172.16.243.131:8098/buckets/frontend_configuration/keys/1

to

  save_file.json

Checking the contents of the save file:

cat save_file.json  | python -mjson.tool

{
    "SCHEMA_VERSION": "0",
    "autoProvisionUsers": "true",
    "defaultAuthenticationMethod": "NATIVE",
    "defaultGroupIds": [],
    "forceDefaultAuthentication": "true",
    "forceDeny": [],
    "masterNetworkId": 1,
    "systemName": "Enstratius"
}

Update the contents of a bucket/key by passing in a json file

es-riak --update -b frontend_configuration -k 1 -i input.json
Valid JSON
updating!

Saved contents of:

  http://172.16.243.131:8098/buckets/frontend_configuration/keys/1

to

  input.json.original


 Done.

 To view your changes, call:

es-riak --show -b frontend_configuration -k 1

where the file input.json has contents:

cat input.json | python -mjson.tool

{
    "SCHEMA_VERSION": "0",
    "autoProvisionUsers": "true",
    "defaultAuthenticationMethod": "NATIVE",
    "defaultGroupIds": [],
    "forceDefaultAuthentication": "true",
    "forceDeny": [],
    "masterNetworkId": 999,
    "systemName": "Enstratius"
}

bucket contents post-update:

es-riak --show -b frontend_configuration -k 1

{
    "SCHEMA_VERSION": "0",
    "autoProvisionUsers": "true",
    "defaultAuthenticationMethod": "NATIVE",
    "defaultGroupIds": [],
    "forceDefaultAuthentication": "true",
    "forceDeny": [],
    "masterNetworkId": 999,
    "systemName": "Enstratius"
}

Doing a “PUT” to a bucket/key

A plain old “PUT” differs from an update in that there is no step of saving the current contents of a bucket/key (as there may be none) prior to putting the contents of the passed file to the bucket/key.

Futhermore, if there happen to be existing contents of a given bucket/key such as -b frontend_configuration -k 1 and a put is made to that combination, the existing contents will be immediately overwritten.

To put the contents of a file to a bucket/key, execute a call like this:

es-riak --put -b frontend_configuration -k 1 -i input.json

where the contents of input.json might be:

{
    "SCHEMA_VERSION": "0",
    "autoProvisionUsers": "true",
    "defaultAuthenticationMethod": "NATIVE",
    "forceDefaultAuthentication": "true",
    "masterNetworkId": 1,
    "systemName": "Enstratius Hosted",
    "systemReplyEmail": "systemreplyemail@enstratius.com",
    "systemSupportEmail": "systemsupportemail@enstratius.com",
    "systemSupportUrl": "http://system.support.url.com",
    "systemUserConsoleUrl": "https://system.user.console.url/test"
}

The --put flag will trigger the following checks before attempting to put the file contents to the bucket/key:

  1. Does the file exist?
  2. Is the file valid JSON?
So be it.

Valid JSON

Putting the contents of

input.json

to

http://127.0.0.1:8098/buckets/frontend_configuration/keys/1


 Done.

  To view the results of this action, call:

  es-riak --show -b frontend_configuration -k 1

Validating an input JSON file

Valid JSON:

es-riak --validate -i input.json

Valid JSON

Invalid JSON:

es-riak --validate -i invalid.txt

Invalid JSON

Where the contents of invalid.txt are:

{
    "SCHEMA_VERSION": "0",
    "autoProvisionUsers": "true",
    "defaultAuthenticationMethod": "NATIVE",
    "defaultGroupIds": [],
    "forceDefaultAuthentication": "true",
    "forceDeny": [],
    "masterNetworkId": 999,
    "systemName":
}

Elevating an API key

You can use this utility to elevate an API key to a “system” key.

es-riak --elevate-api-key -b api_key -k <your_api_access_key>

An example of this type of interaction is shown here:

es-riak --show -b api_key -k DJFLPQSDJAUHLMLPDJIO

{
    "SCHEMA_VERSION": "0",
    "accessKey": "DJFLPQSDJAUHLMLPDJIO",
    "activationTimestamp": 1368202730181,
    "billingAccount": 52901,
    "customer": 51400,
    "description": "test key",
    "encryption": "TWO",
    "name": "Test",
    "network": 50069,
    "secretKey": "ee235a772d0def0b069d6364cda6a34e8d6d9eca6afcd94d37770e12c6d6d735df9a75fb64bd0a1cb18911a7ed4744fb"
}

There is no need to issue the show command first, I’m just doing it to highlight the differences.

With this information issue the command:

es-riak --elevate-api-key -b api_key -k DJFLPQSDJAUHLMLPDJIO

There will be no output from this command.

bucket contents post-elevate:

es-riak --show -b api_key -k DJFLPQSDJAUHLMLPDJIO

{
    "SCHEMA_VERSION": "0",
    "accessKey": "DJFLPQSDJAUHLMLPDJIO",
    "activationTimestamp": 1368202730181,
    "billingAccount": 52901,
    "customer": 51400,
    "customerManagementKey": true,
    "description": "test key",
    "encryption": "TWO",
    "name": "Test",
    "network": 50069,
    "secretKey": "ee235a772d0def0b069d6364cda6a34e8d6d9eca6afcd94d37770e12c6d6d735df9a75fb64bd0a1cb18911a7ed4744fb",
    "systemManagementKey": true
}
