This page describes the project related REST endpoints. Please also take note of the general information on the REST API.

Project Endpoints

List Projects

'GET /projects/'

Lists the projects accessible by the caller. This is the same as using the ls-projects command over SSH, and accepts the same options as query parameters.

As result a map is returned that maps the project names to ProjectInfo entries. The entries in the map are sorted by project name.

  GET /projects/?d HTTP/1.0

  HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Add, Update and Delete Access Rights for Project

'POST /projects/{project-name}/access'

Sets access rights for the project using the diff schema provided by ProjectAccessInput. Deductions are used to remove access sections, permissions or permission rules. The backend will remove the entity with the finest granularity in the request, meaning that if an access section without permissions is posted, the access section will be removed; if an access section with a permission but no permission rules is posted, the permission will be removed; if an access section with a permission and a permission rule is posted, the permission rule will be removed.

Additionally, access sections and permissions will be cleaned up after applying the deductions by removing items that have no child elements.

After removals have been applied, additions will be applied.

As result a ProjectAccessInfo entity is returned.

This endpoint is functionally equivalent to create change in the change API, but it has the project name in the URL, which is easier to route in sharded deployments.

Create Access Rights Change for review.

'PUT /projects/{project-name}/access:review

Sets access rights for the project using the diff schema provided by ProjectAccessInput

This takes the same input as Update Access Rights, but creates a pending change for review. Like Create Change, it returns a ChangeInfo entity describing the resulting change.

Request

Check Access

'GET /projects/MyProject/check.access?account=1000098&ref=refs%2Fheads%2Fsecret%2Fbla'

This command runs access checks for other users. This requires the View Access global capability.

The result is a AccessCheckInfo entity detailing the access of the given user for the given project, project-ref, or project-permission-ref combination.

Response
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

    "status": 403
  }

Check Access Options

Account(account)

The account for which to check access. Mandatory.

Permission(perm)

The ref permission for which to check access. If not specified, read access to at least branch is checked.

Ref(ref)

The branch for which to check access. This must be given if perm is specified.

Index project

Adds or updates the current project (and children, if specified) in the secondary index. The indexing task is executed asynchronously in background and this command returns immediately if async is specified in the input.

As an input, a IndexProjectInput entity can be provided.

Request
  POST /projects/MyProject/index HTTP/1.0
  Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

  {
    "index_children": "true"
    "async": "true"
  }
Response
  HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted
  Content-Disposition: attachment

Index all changes in a project

Adds or updates all the changes belonging to a project in the secondary index. The indexing task is executed asynchronously in background, so this command returns immediately.

Request
  POST /projects/MyProject/index.changes HTTP/1.0
Response
  HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted
  Content-Disposition: attachment

Check project consistency

Performs consistency checks on the project.

Which consistency checks should be performed is controlled by the CheckProjectInput entity in the request body.

The following consistency checks are supported:

  • AutoCloseableChangesCheck: Searches for open changes that can be auto-closed because a patch set of the change is already contained in the destination branch or because the destination branch contains a commit with the same Change-Id. Normally Gerrit auto-closes such changes when the corresponding commits are pushed directly to the repository. However if a branch is updated behind Gerrit’s back or if auto-closing changes fails (and the push is still successful) change states can get inconsistent (changes that are already part of the destination branch are still open). This consistency check is intended to detect and repair this situation.

To fix any problems that can be fixed automatically set the fix field in the inputs for the consistency checks to true.

This REST endpoint requires the Administrate Server global capability.

Request
  POST /projects/MyProject/check HTTP/1.0
  Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

  {
    "auto_closeable_changes_check": {
      "fix": true,
      "branch": "refs/heads/master",
      "max_commits": 100
    }
  }

As response a CheckProjectResultInfo entity is returned that results for the consistency checks.
