Introduction

The zf-apigility-admin module delivers the backend management API and frontend Admin UI used to manage APIs in Apigility.

NOTE

DO NOT enable this module in production systems.

Requirements

Please see the composer.json file.

Installation

Run the following composer command:

$ composer require --dev "zfcampus/zf-apigility-admin:~1.0-dev"

Alternately, manually add the following to your composer.json, in the require section:

"require-dev": {
    "zfcampus/zf-apigility-admin": "~1.0-dev"
}

And then run composer update to ensure the module is installed.

Finally, add the module name to your project's config/application.config.php under the modules key:

return array(
    /* ... */
    'modules' => array(
        /* ... */
        'ZF\Apigility\Admin',
    ),
    /* ... */
);

Typically, this module should be used along with zf-development-mode in order to conditionally enable the module in your application. When doing so, you will add the module to your project's config/development.config.php.dist file instead of the config/application.config.php file, and enable it via php public/index.php development enable.

Configuration

There is no custom user level configuration for this module.

Since this particular module is responsible for providing APIs and the Apigility Admin UI, it has a significant amount of configuration that it requires in order to function in a development environment. Since it is highly unlikely that developers would need to modify the system-level configuration, it is omitted in this README, but can be found within the repository.

Routes

This module exposes HTTP accessible API endpoints and static assets.

API Endpoints

All routes are prefixed with /apigility by default.

api/config

This endpoint is for examining the application configuration, and providing overrides of individual values in it. All overrides are written to a single file, config/autoload/development.php; you can override that location in your configuration via the zf-configuration.config-file key.

  • Accept: application/json, application/vnd.zfcampus.v1.config+json

    application/json will deliver representations as a flat array of key/value pairs, with the keys being dot-separated values, just as you would find in INI.

    application/vnd.zfcampus.v1.config+json will deliver the configuration as a tree.

  • Content-Type: application/json, application/vnd.zfcampus.v1.config+json

    application/json indicates you are sending key/value pairs, with keys being dot-separated values, as you would find in INI files.

    application/vnd.zfcampus.v1.config+json indicates you are sending a nested array/object of configuration.

  • Methods: GET, PATCH

  • Errors: application/problem+json

api/config/module?module={module name}

This operates exactly like the api/config endpoint, but expects a known module name. When provided, it allows you to introspect and manipulate the configuration file for that module.

api/authentication

This REST endpoint is for creating, updating, and deleting the authentication configuration for your application. It uses the authentication resource.

  • HTTP methods: GET, POST, PATCH, DELETE

    GET returns a 404 response if no authentication has previously been setup. POST will return a 201 response on success. PATCH will return a 200 response on success. DELETE will return a 204 response on success.

  • Errors: application/problem+json

api/authentication/:authentication_adapter

This REST endpoint is for fetching and updating the authentication adapters to be used in Apigility. It uses the authentication resource ver. 2.

This endpoint is only available for API version 2. You need to pass the following mediatype in the Appect header:

{
    "accept_schemes": [ "basic" ],
    "realm": "The HTTP authentication realm to use",
    "htpasswd": "path on filesystem to htpasswd file"
}
HTTP Digest authentication:
{
    "accept_schemes": [ "digest" ],
    "realm": "The HTTP authentication realm to use",
    "htdigest": "path on filesystem to htdigest file",
    "nonce_timeout": "integer; seconds",
    "digest_domains": "Space-separated list of URIs under authentication"
}

{
    "dsn": "PDO DSN of database containing OAuth2 schema",
    "username": "Username associated with DSN",
    "password": "Password associated with DSN",
    "route_match": "Literal route to match indicating where OAuth2 login/authorization exists"
}

authentication2

HTTP Basic authentication:
{
    "name" : "Name of the authentication adapter",
    "type": "basic",
    "realm": "The HTTP authentication realm to use",
    "htpasswd": "Path on filesystem to htpasswd file"
}
HTTP Digest authentication:

}

authorization

{
    "Rest\Controller\Service\Name::__resource__": {
        "GET": bool,
        "POST": bool,
        "PUT": bool,
        "PATCH": bool,
        "DELETE": bool
    },
    "Rest\Controller\Service\Name::__collection__": {
        "GET": bool,
        "POST": bool,
        "PUT": bool,
        "PATCH": bool,
        "DELETE": bool
    },
    "Rpc\Controller\Service\Name::actionName": {
        "GET": bool,
        "POST": bool,
        "PUT": bool,
        "PATCH": bool,
        "DELETE": bool
    }
}

REST services have an entry for each of their entity and collection instances. RPC services have an entry per action name that is exposed (this will typically only be one). Each service has a list of HTTP methods, with a flag. A false value indicates that no authorization is required; a true value indicates that authorization is required.

Note: If the deny_by_default flag is set in the application, then the meaning of the flags is reversed; true then means the method is public, false means it requires authentication.

db-adapter

{
    "adapter_name": "Service name for the DB adapter",
    "database": "Name of the database",
    "driver": "Driver used to make the connection"
}

Additionally, any other properties used to create the Zend\Db\Adapter\Adapter instance may be composed: e.g., "username", "password", etc.

inputfilter

{
    "input_name": {
        "name": "name of the input; should match key of object",
        "validators": [
            {
                "name": "Name of validator service",
                "options": {
                    "key": "value pairs to specify behavior of validator"
                }
            }
        ]
    }
}

An input filter may contain any number of inputs, and the format follows that used by Zend\InputFilter\Factory as described in the Zend Framework 2 input filter documentation.

Currently, we do not allow nesting input filters.

module

{
    "name": "normalized module name",
    "namespace": "PHP namespace of the module",
    "is_vendor": "boolean value indicating whether or not this is a vendor (3rd party) module",
    "versions": [
        "Array",
        "of",
        "available versions"
    ]
}

Additionally, the module resource composes relational links for RPC and REST resources; these use the relations "rpc" and "rest", respectively.

ZF2 Events

Listeners

ZF\Apigility\Admin\Module

This listener is attached to MvcEvent::EVENT_RENDER at priority 100. It is responsible for conditionally attaching a listener depending on if the controller service result is that of an entity or that of a collection. If either is detected, the listener is attached to the ZF\Hal\Plugin\Hal events renderEntity and renderCollection.entity, which ensures they will be dispatched when the HAL plugin has an opportunity to start rendering.

ZF2 Services

Models

Many of the model services provided by zf-apigility-admin either deal with the generation and modification of PHP code, or the generation and modification of PHP based configuration files.

  • ZF\Apigility\Admin\Model\AuthenticationModel - responsible for creating and modifying the authentication specific configuration of HTTP Basic, HTTP Digest and OAuth2 strategies. Sensitive information will be written to local configuration files while structural information is written to global and module files.
  • ZF\Apigility\Admin\Model\AuthorizationModelFactory - responsible for writing the authorization specific details (the ACL matrix of allow/disallow rules) to the module configuration file.
  • ZF\Apigility\Admin\Model\ContentNegotiationModel - responsible for writing custom content-negotiation selectors to the global configuration file.
  • ZF\Apigility\Admin\Model\ContentNegotiationResource - REST resource that consumes the ContentNegotiationModel in order to expose an API endpoint for content-negotiation configuration management.
  • ZF\Apigility\Admin\Model\DbAdapterModel - responsible for writing database adapter specific configuration between application level global and local configuration files. Sensitive information is written to local configuration files.
  • ZF\Apigility\Admin\Model\DbAdapterResource - REST resource that consumes the DbAdapterModel in order to expose an API endpoint for database adapter configuration management.
  • ZF\Apigility\Admin\Model\DbConnectedRestServiceModel - responsible for writing the required configuration information necessary to expose a database table as a REST resource.
  • ZF\Apigility\Admin\Model\DocumentationModel - responsible for writing a special named file in the module's configuration directory that will contain all custom API documentation for requests, responses, and all other documentable elements of an API.
  • ZF\Apigility\Admin\Model\InputFilterModel - responsible for writing the input filter specification configuration for each module.
  • ZF\Apigility\Admin\Model\FiltersModel - responsible for providing, through the API, a list of built-in filters and their metadata.
