python sdk for Glance API

Project description


GitHub Actions Status GitHub Actions Deploy Status

The python wrapper for the Glance API.

Environment Variables

See stare/settings/ for all environment variables that can be set. All environment variables for this package are prefixed with STARE. As of now, there are:

  • STARE_USERNAME: CERN account username
  • STARE_PASSWORD: CERN account password
  • STARE_AUTH_URL: authentication server
  • STARE_SITE_URL: API server
  • STARE_CASSETTE_LIBRARY_DIR: for tests, where to store recorded requests/responses

CLI Usage

Use stare --help for the various options provided.

Python Usage

import stare
glance = stare.Glance()

# get publication information of a publication
pub_info = glance.publication('HDBS-2018-33')
# get publications for a given activity/reference code (see table below)
pubs = glance.publications(activity_id=26, reference_code='HIGG')

Activity IDs

Activity IDs are currently in a different API project (under SCAB Nominations) which SUSY conveners have access to. For now, this is a partial list to make it easier.

In order to get SSL handshakes working (certificate verification), one needs to make sure we add/trust the CERN Certification Authorities (CA) for both the Root and the Grid CAs. Specifically, we rely on the Root CA to sign/issue the Grid CA. The Grid CA is what's relied on for the SSL chain. To make this happen, we'll need both PEM for each CA combined into a single CERN_chain.pem file which is bundled up with this package.

Going to the CERN CA Files website and downloading the CERN Root Certification Authority 2 (DER file) and CERN Grid Certification Authority (PEM file). We can then convert the DER to PEM as follows (for the Root CA):

openssl x509 -in CERN_ROOT_CA_2.crt -inform der -outform pem -out CERN_ROOT_CA_2.pem

and then combine the two

cat CERN_GRID_CA_2.pem CERN_ROOT_CA_2.pem > CERN_chain.pem

This can be passed into any python requests::Session via verify='/path/to/CERN_chain.pem' and SSL verification should work.

[1] DER vs PEM?
