IDM 7.2.0

Configure the server over REST

IDM exposes configuration objects under the /openidm/config context path.

The optional waitForCompletion parameter is available to the config endpoint for create, update, and patch requests. Requests to the endpoint with waitForCompletion=true delay the response until an OSGi service event confirms the change has been consumed by the corresponding service or the request times out.

The following server properties support additional configuration of the waitForCompletion behavior. For more information, see Property value substitution.

openidm.config.waitByDefault

Default Value: false

Specifies whether to wait for the OSGi service event if the waitForCompletion parameter is missing from the request.

openidm.config.waitTimeout

Default Value: 5000

The amount of time, in milliseconds, to wait for OSGi service events before timing out.

To list the configuration on the local host, perform a GET request on http://localhost:8080/openidm/config.

Example GET Request

The following REST call includes excerpts of the default configuration for an IDM instance started with the sync-with-csv sample:

curl \
--request GET \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
http://localhost:8080/openidm/config
{
  "_id": "",
  "configurations": [
    {
      "_id": "router",
      "pid": "router",
      "factoryPid": null
    },
    {
      "_id": "info/login",
      "pid": "info.f01fc3ed-5871-408d-a5f0-bef00ccc4c8f",
      "factoryPid": "info"
    },
    {
      "_id": "provisioner.openicf/csvfile",
      "pid": "provisioner.openicf.9009f4a1-ea47-4227-94e6-69c345864ba7",
      "factoryPid": "provisioner.openicf"
    },
    {
      "_id": "endpoint/usernotifications",
      "pid": "endpoint.e2751afc-d169-4a23-a88e-7211d340bccb",
      "factoryPid": "endpoint"
    },
    ...
  ]
}

Single instance configuration objects are located under openidm/config/object-name.

You can change the configuration over REST by using an HTTP PUT or HTTP PATCH request to modify the required configuration object.

Example PUT Request

The following example uses a PUT request to modify the configuration of the scheduler service, increasing the maximum number of threads that are available for the concurrent execution of scheduled tasks:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--request PUT \
--data '{
  "threadPool": {
    "threadCount": 20
  },
  "scheduler": {
    "executePersistentSchedules": {
      "$bool": "&{openidm.scheduler.execute.persistent.schedules}"
    }
  }
}' \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/config/scheduler"
{
  "_id": "scheduler",
  "threadPool": {
    "threadCount": 20
  },
  "scheduler": {
    "executePersistentSchedules": {
      "$bool": "&{openidm.scheduler.execute.persistent.schedules}"
    }
  }
}
Example PATCH Request

The following example uses a PATCH request to reset the number of threads to their original value.

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--request PATCH \
--data '[
  {
    "operation" : "replace",
    "field" : "/threadPool/threadCount",
    "value" : 10
  }
]' \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/config/scheduler"
{
  "_id": "scheduler",
  "threadPool": {
    "threadCount": 10
  },
  "scheduler": {
    "executePersistentSchedules": {
      "$bool": "&{openidm.scheduler.execute.persistent.schedules}"
    }
  }
}

Multi-version concurrency control (MVCC) is not supported for configuration objects so you do not need to specify a revision during updates to the configuration, and no revision is returned in the output.

For more information about using the REST API to update objects, see the REST API Reference.
