Credential Registry API

Codeship Status Code Climate Coverage Status

Table of Contents


This project is a community based metadata registry. With it your community can have a full data store with an api, data validation and search capabilities, by just providing a simple config with a json-schema definition.

It is used as the API engine underneath the CE/Registry. Also comprises the new implementation of the Learning Registry API, using a widely-used database and providing a more developer-friendly, REST-oriented environment.


We organize any info into community buckets. All data inside a community is abstracted in envelopes. These envelopes can yield any type of resource, encoded using JWT. You can define a schema (via a json-schema file) for your resources. With these configs in hand we can validate the resources, and provide a search api.
