OS Conductor

Gitter Travis Coveralls Issues Docs

Web services for OpenSpending, responsible for:

  • user authentication, identity and access control
  • package upload, management, and status
  • package search of os-package-registry
  • upload to the S3 datastore

os-conductor uses Flask web framework.

Quick start for development

Clone the repo, install dependencies from pypi, and run the server. See the docs for more information.

The os-types node utility is used to perform fiscal modelling for the processed datapackage. To install, use npm:

$ npm install -g os-types

Tests

With a running ElasticSearch server available on localhost:9200:

$ pip install tox  # install tox
$ tox

Environmental Variables

OS Conductor requires environmental variables to be set, either in the local environment or in a .env file in the root directory.

# Required settings

# Base URL for the application, e.g. 'http://localhost' or 'https://openspending.org'
OS_BASE_URL=
# Address for the postgres instance, e.g. postgresql://postgres@db/postgres
OS_CONDUCTOR_ENGINE=
# Address for ElasticSearch instance
OS_ELASTICSEARCH_ADDRESS=

# OAuth credentials. See the OAuth Credentials section below for details.
OS_CONDUCTOR_SECRETS_0=
OS_CONDUCTOR_SECRETS_1=
OS_CONDUCTOR_SECRETS_2=
OS_CONDUCTOR_SECRETS_3=

# AWS S3 credentials
OS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=
OS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=
OS_S3_HOSTNAME=
OS_STORAGE_BUCKET_NAME=

# Optional settings

# Address for memcached server, e.g. http://cache:11211
OS_CONDUCTOR_CACHE=

# Address for the redis os-api-cache server, e.g. redis
OS_API_CACHE=

# If this env var exists, the entrypoint script will check whether ElasticSearch is healthy before allowing os-conductor to start.
OS_CHECK_ES_HEALTHY=

# If using the fake-s3 docker container for development, openspending/fakes3, add these settings:
USE_FAKE_S3=True
OS_S3_PORT=4567

OAuth Credentials

OS Conductor needs credentials for authentication and authorization tasks. Credential values is set on OS_CONDUCTOR_SECRETS_<n> env vars. We provide a python script to help generate these values in docker/secrets/generate-secrets/to_env_vars.py.

  1. Create a Google OAuth Credentials and retain the Client ID and Secret Key
  2. Paste the Client ID and Secret Key values in to google.key and google.secret.key files respectively within the generate-secrets directory.
  3. Run the python script:
$ cd docker/secrets/generate-secrets
$ python ./to_env_vars.py
  1. Copy the generated env var key/values into your local environment or .env file in the root directory.

Admin tools

Various admin tools are available in the /tools directory. Some tools require dependencies to be installed from /tools/requirements.txt.

remove_package.py

Remove a named package (or packages) from the ElasticSearch index, and hence from searches and discovery within OpenSpending. Removing a package from the index won't remove it from the AWS datastore.

API Endpoints

Conductor current ships with the following blueprints, and their API endpoints.

Get authorized upload URL(s)

/datastore/authorize

Method: POST

Query Parameters:

  • jwt - permission token (received from /user/authorize)

Headers:

  • Auth-Token - permission token (can be used instead of the jwt query parameter)

Body:

JSON content with the following structure:

{
    "metadata": {
        "owner": "<user-id-of-uploader>",
        "name": "<data-set-unique-id>"
    },
    "filedata": {
        "<relative-path-to-file-in-package-1>": {
            "length": 1234, // length in bytes of data
            "md5": "<md5-hash-of-the-data>",
            "type": "<content-type-of-the-data>",
            "name": "<file-name>"
        },
