Stability of the Apache Ambari REST-API

avatar
Contributor


Hey everyone,
I am starting to work with Apache Ambari and I have to realize a System to get a short Overview over all Ambari Instances in one place.
My first approach is to connect to the Ambari-REST API and extract the relevant metadata. My colleagues told me, that the datamodel can be changed in the upgrade process of Ambari to a next Version.
Now my Querstion, can I use the REST-API for my use-Case even if Ambari will be upgraded periodically.


Before I want to start programming, I want to weigh up all possible approaches.


I see forward for your feedback

Best regards
Dominik

Do you think the Api will be the same in future-Releases of Ambari. I don’t want to start program and in the next release the API will Change fundamentally and I have to modify my Software.

Again, the API is versioned. If there are any major breaking changes, one should expect there to be a v2.

If you just look at the Github trunk, then you'll see that the API spec has not changed in years, and the latest commits have been typo and hyperlink fixes.
