cinder.api.openstack package

Module contents

WSGI middleware for OpenStack API controllers.

class APIMapper(controller_scan=<function controller_scan>, directory=None, always_scan=False, register=True, explicit=True)

Bases: routes.mapper.Mapper

connect(*args, **kwargs)

Create and connect a new Route to the Mapper.


m = Mapper()
m.connect('date/:year/:month/:day', controller="blog",
m.connect('archives/:page', controller="blog", action="by_page",
requirements = { 'page':'\d{1,2}' })
m.connect('category_list', 'archives/category/:section',
          controller='blog', action='category',
          section='home', type='list')
m.connect('home', '', controller='blog', action='view',
routematch(url=None, environ=None)

Match a URL against against one of the routes contained.

Will return None if no valid match is found, otherwise a result dict and a route object is returned.

resultdict, route_obj = m.match('/joe/sixpack')
class APIRouter(ext_mgr=None)

Bases: oslo_service.wsgi.Router

Routes requests on the API to the appropriate controller and method.

ExtensionManager = None
classmethod factory(global_config, **local_config)

Simple paste factory, cinder.wsgi.Router doesn’t have.

class ProjectMapper(controller_scan=<function controller_scan>, directory=None, always_scan=False, register=True, explicit=True)

Bases: cinder.api.openstack.APIMapper

resource(member_name, collection_name, **kwargs)

Generate routes for a controller resource

The member_name name should be the appropriate singular version of the resource given your locale and used with members of the collection. The collection_name name will be used to refer to the resource collection methods and should be a plural version of the member_name argument. By default, the member_name name will also be assumed to map to a controller you create.

The concept of a web resource maps somewhat directly to ‘CRUD’ operations. The overlying things to keep in mind is that mapping a resource is about handling creating, viewing, and editing that resource.

All keyword arguments are optional.

If specified in the keyword args, the controller will be the actual controller used, but the rest of the naming conventions used for the route names and URL paths are unchanged.

Additional action mappings used to manipulate/view the entire set of resources provided by the controller.


map.resource('message', 'messages', collection={'rss':'GET'})
# GET /message/rss (maps to the rss action)
# also adds named route "rss_message"

Additional action mappings used to access an individual ‘member’ of this controllers resources.


map.resource('message', 'messages', member={'mark':'POST'})
# POST /message/1/mark (maps to the mark action)
# also adds named route "mark_message"

Action mappings that involve dealing with a new member in the controller resources.


map.resource('message', 'messages', new={'preview':'POST'})
# POST /message/new/preview (maps to the preview action)
# also adds a url named "preview_new_message"
Prepends the URL path for the Route with the path_prefix given. This is most useful for cases where you want to mix resources or relations between resources.

Perpends the route names that are generated with the name_prefix given. Combined with the path_prefix option, it’s easy to generate route names and paths that represent resources that are in relations.


map.resource('message', 'messages', controller='categories',
# GET /category/7/message/1
# has named route "category_message"


A dictionary that restricts the matching of a variable. Can be used when matching variables with path_prefix.


map.resource('message', 'messages',
     requirements={"project_id": R"\d+"})
# POST /01234/message
#    success, project_id is set to "01234"
# POST /foo/message
#    404 not found, won't be matched by this route

A dict containing information about the parent resource, for creating a nested resource. It should contain the member_name and collection_name of the parent resource. This dict will be available via the associated Route object which can be accessed during a request via request.environ['routes.route']

If parent_resource is supplied and path_prefix isn’t, path_prefix will be generated from parent_resource as “<parent collection name>/:<parent member name>_id”.

If parent_resource is supplied and name_prefix isn’t, name_prefix will be generated from parent_resource as “<parent member name>_”.


>>> from routes.util import url_for
>>> m = Mapper()
>>> m.resource('location', 'locations',
...            parent_resource=dict(member_name='region',
...                                 collection_name='regions'))
>>> # path_prefix is "regions/:region_id"
>>> # name prefix is "region_"
>>> url_for('region_locations', region_id=13)
>>> url_for('region_new_location', region_id=13)
>>> url_for('region_location', region_id=13, id=60)
>>> url_for('region_edit_location', region_id=13, id=60)

Overriding generated path_prefix:

>>> m = Mapper()
>>> m.resource('location', 'locations',
...            parent_resource=dict(member_name='region',
...                                 collection_name='regions'),
...            path_prefix='areas/:area_id')
>>> # name prefix is "region_"
>>> url_for('region_locations', area_id=51)

Overriding generated name_prefix:

>>> m = Mapper()
>>> m.resource('location', 'locations',
...            parent_resource=dict(member_name='region',
...                                 collection_name='regions'),
...            name_prefix='')
>>> # path_prefix is "regions/:region_id"
>>> url_for('locations', region_id=51)
