Read service-wide configuration values via API

Master Collaborator

Hi,

 I am wondering if it is possible to get Service-Wide configurations via read_config method of the RoleConfigGroupsResourceApi class.

https://archive.cloudera.com/cm6/6.3.0/generic/jar/cm_api/swagger-html-sdk-docs/python/docs/RoleConf...

 

The read_roles method of RolesResourceAPI returns theses roles:

 

CD-HDFS-eHtEMKVf-DATANODE-BASE
CD-HDFS-eHtEMKVf-SECONDARYNAMENODE-BASE
CD-HDFS-eHtEMKVf-HTTPFS-BASE
CD-HDFS-eHtEMKVf-DATANODE-BASE
CD-HDFS-eHtEMKVf-DATANODE-BASE
CD-HDFS-eHtEMKVf-NAMENODE-BASE

 

 But when I query all these roles, I cannot find the Service-Wide property of Advanced configuration for core-site.xml

 

Reading configuration for CD-HDFS-eHtEMKVf-DATANODE-BASE
{'items': [{'default': None,
            'description': 'For advanced use only, key-value pairs (one on '
                           "each line) to be inserted into a role's "
                           'environment. Applies to configurations of this '
                           'role except client configuration.',
            'display_name': 'DataNode Environment Advanced Configuration '
                            'Snippet (Safety Valve)',
            'name': 'DATANODE_role_env_safety_valve',
            'related_name': '',
            'required': False,
            'sensitive': False,
            'validation_message': None,
            'validation_state': 'OK',
            'validation_warnings_suppressed': False,
            'value': None},
           {'default': '{"critical":"never","warning":"1000000.0"}',
            'description': 'The health test thresholds of the number of blocks '
                           'on a DataNode',
            'display_name': 'DataNode Block Count Thresholds',
            'name': 'datanode_block_count_thresholds',
            'related_name': '',
            'required': False,
            'sensitive': False,
            'validation_message': None,
            'validation_state': 'OK',
            'validation_warnings_suppressed': None,
            'value': None},
           {'default': None,

 

 

Maybe I should search in other classes? Please advise,

Thanks

The solution is quite simple, was not aware that the service-wide configurations are not in roles but in services. So the solution is to use a ServicesResourceApi endpoint and read_service_config method.

Something like this:

 

    def get_service_config(self, service_name):
        """Returns the configuration of the service"""
        services_instance = cm_client.ServicesResourceApi(self.api)
        view = 'summary'
        try:
            api_response = services_instance.read_service_config(
                self.cluster_name, service_name, view=view)
            return api_response.to_dict()
        except ApiException as exception:
            print(f"Exception when calling ServicesResourceApi->read_service_config: {exception}\n")
