REST Web Services

From iDempiere en

Introduction

The iDempiere REST API is a plugin that allows developers to communicate with an iDempiere server via a RESTful API. This information is delivered via HTTP using JSON.

The iDempiere REST API seeks to follow the OData standard and uses the following structure and endpoints.

You can find examples of every call in the postman collection sample files in the official repository.

Login in to get your Bearer authorization token

There are two ways to log in to get your authorization token.

One-step log-in

When you know beforehand all the login information needed to get into the system, you need to do a POST request to the following endpoint
.../api/v1/auth/tokens

With a body like this:

{
    "userName": "{{userName}}",
    "password": "{{password}}",
    "parameters": {
        "clientId": {{clientId}},
        "roleId": {{roleId}},
        "organizationId": {{organizationId}},
        "warehouseId": {{warehouseId}},
        "language": "{{language}}"
    }
}

Change all the Template:Propertyname values to the ones you want to use in your instance.

Normal log-in

If you want to log in as a user would normally do in iDempiere (choosing a role, warehouse, client, etc), you need to do the following requests

POST .../api/v1/auth/tokens
Body:

{
    "userName": "{{userName}}",
    "password": "{{password}}"
}

Response Payload

{
    "clients": [
        {
            "id": 11,
            "name": "GardenWorld"
        }
    ],
    "token": "eyJraWQiOiJpZGVtcGllcmUiLCJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzUxMiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJHYXJkZW5BZG1pbiIsImlzcyI6ImlkZW1waWVyZS5vcmciLCJDbGllbnRzIjoiMTEiLCJleHAiOjE2NjY5NjQ5Mjh9.3t0MuK6ReF7xNmb36ITM36VSKI5QnK3n0ZF_LIgPQSrso4oRhDsL8Mudc0NqH4qjvvKDlYsPquYKtrHnB5UiZg"
}

With that token you can request for login information from the user that is being authenticated. You need to add it to the request Header with Key value as:
Authorization: Bearer {authToken}

The information you can request is the following, and it needs to be done in this order because each request needs information from the previous call:
GET .../api/v1/auth/roles?client={clientId}

Returns an array with the roles that the user has access to


GET .../api/v1/auth/organizations?client={clientId}&role={roleId}

Returns an array with the organizations that the user has access to.


/api/v1/auth/warehouses?client={clientId}&role={roleId}&organization={organizationId}

Returns an array with the warehouses that the user has access to.


GET .../api/v1/auth/language?client={clientId}

Returns an array with the languages the user can login with.


When you have all the data you need to do a final PUT request like this:

PUT .../api/v1/auth/tokens

Body:

{
  "clientId": {clientId},
  "roleId": {roleId},
  "organizationId": {organizationId},
  "warehouseId": {warehouseId},
  "language": "{language}"
}

* The language, organizationId and warehouseId properties are optional, it can be omitted and the system will use the default language and 0 respectively.

Response Payload

{
    "userId": 101,
    "language": "en_US",
    "token": "eyJraWQiOiJpZGVtcGllcmUiLCJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzUxMiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJHYXJkZW5BZG1pbiIsIk1fV2FyZWhvdXNlX0lEIjoxMDMsIkFEX0xhbmd1YWdlIjoiZW5fVVMiLCJBRF9TZXNzaW9uX0lEIjoxMDA1MTYzLCJBRF9Vc2VyX0lEIjoxMDEsIkFEX1JvbGVfSUQiOjEwMiwiQURfT3JnX0lEIjoxMSwiaXNzIjoiaWRlbXBpZXJlLm9yZyIsIkFEX0NsaWVudF9JRCI6MTEsImV4cCI6MTY2Njk2NTYyNn0.o94WD7fN-TsrnhYULIJtI5PKkalh4VrBLxeza_xYPiwny9EBin6whSoP40Hn6iYt2WFwluSOgqPD-w0srZiCBQ"
}

Common Headers

  • Content-Type: application/json
  • Accept: application/json
  • Authorization: Bearer {authToken}
    • All calls except the first one (POST/auth) require an authorization bearer that is returned by the /auth APIs from the previous steps.

Requesting Data

iDempiere supports requests for data via HTTP GET requests.

On every get request the response will include this information, in addition to the one requested:

  • id: the record ID
  • uid: the UUID of the record
  • model-name: the table name of the record
  • {columnname}: each pair of column/value is represented as a json object with the columnname:
    • String: strings are represented directly as a json string quoted value
    • Yes/No: these are represented as true/false
    • Numbers: numbers are represented as a json number without quotes
    • Dates/Times: timestamp values are represented as a json date (quoted string with format ISO_8601
    • Foreign keys: these are represented as a json object with the following values:
      • propertyLabel -> the foreign name
      • id -> the foreign record ID
      • identifier -> the foreign identifier
      • model-name -> the foreign table name
    • Binary: binary columns are represented directly as a json string base64 encoded value
    • Images: these are represented as a json object with the following values:
      • propertyLabel -> the foreign name
      • id -> the foreign record ID
      • data -> a string containing the base64 encoded data for the image
      • model-name -> the foreign table name

Requesting an Individual Property

To address an entity property clients append a path segment containing property name to the URL of the entity. The request below returns the Rate property of a tax. GET /api/v1/models/c_tax/106/rate

}

Querying Data

iDempiere supports various kinds of query options for querying data. This section will help you go through the common scenarios for these query options.

Query Option $filter

The $filter query option allows developers to filter a collection of resources that are addressed by a request URL. The expression specified with $filter is evaluated for each resource in the collection, and only items where the expression evaluates to true are included in the response. These are the basic predicates that are supported:

  • $filter
    • Logical operators
      • eq -> equals =
      • neq -> not equals !=
      • gt -> greater than >
      • ge -> greater or equal >=
      • lt -> less than <
      • le -> less or equal <=
      • and -> &
      • not -> !
    • Method operators:
      • contains -> if a string contains another string
      • startswith -> if a string starts with another string
      • endswith -> if a string ends with another string
      • tolower -> convert a string to lowercase
      • toupper -> convert a string to uppercase

Examples

The request below using $filter to get business partners where IsCustomer = true and IsActive = true and the name starts with 'Pa' GET /api/v1/models/c_bpartner?$filter=isCustomer eq true AND isActive eq true

By default expand searches for the primary key column in the master table and tries to create the relation with this column name in the expanded table. /ad_user?$expand=c_order expands using ad_user_id by default. Sometimes you want to specify which column must be used for the expanding. In this case, you need to specify the column name using a dot after the table name.

The request below returns users and their corresponding orders as sales representatives.

/api/v1/models/ad_user?$expand=C_order.salesrep_id($select=documentno)&$select=Name

Response Payload

{
    "id": 100,
    "uid": "986cb4dc-7161-4d77-a7c7-3832d24b19de",

        }
    ]
}

iDempiere has special tables where record_id is used, for instance, fact_acct. You can expand to this table using the same syntax as explained above. The plug-in will automatically set the correct value for AD_Table_ID

The request below returns the invoice 104 and their corresponding records on fact_acct.

/api/v1/models/c_invoice/104?$expand=fact_acct.record_id($select=fact_acct_id)&$select=DocumentNo

Response Payload

{

        }
    ]
}

Sometimes you want to expand to a master record as well, for instance, from product to product category. You accomplish this by writing expand followed by the column name you want to expand.

The request below returns the product 122 and its corresponding product category.

/api/v1/models/m_product/122?$expand=m_product_category_id($select=Name,IsDefault)&$select=Name

Response Payload

{
    "id": 122,
    "uid": "c713192a-9ed3-4740-ad32-9583c30d0206",
    "Name": "Standard",
    "model-name": "m_product",
    "M_Product_Category_ID": {
        "id": 105,
        "uid": "be686f7e-993f-4162-a02d-ad4bb8c6987b",
        "Name": "Standard",
        "IsDefault": true,
        "model-name": "m_product_category"
    }
}

Note: For obvious reasons. $select is the only query operator accepted in this case.

You can expand on multiple levels by using the $expand operators within the $expand clause. You can only expand deeper on master > detail records. Cases like GET ../orders?$expand=AD_user_ID($expand=C_orderLine) are forbidden.

Query Option $orderby

The $orderby query option allows developers to request resources in either ascending order using asc or descending order using desc. If asc or desc not specified, then the resources will be ordered in ascending order.

The request below orders products on property Value in descending order. GET /api/v1/models/m_product?$orderby=Value desc

iDempiere specific query Options

Query Option $valrule

The query option $valrule can be used to get PO records using a validation rule - AD_ValRule_ID or AD_ValRule_UU

Query Option $context

The query option $context can be used to put variables in context to be parsed by the validation rule

Query Option showsql

The query option showsql can be used to add the SQL query being executed on GET.

You can also use showsql=nodata to obtain just information about the query without returning the real data.

The payload will include a JSON element with name sql-command containing the query that is executed in the database to obtain the record(s).

When showsql is used at the same time with $expand, then the payload will include the sql-command JSON element for the query on the master table, and also it will include the elements with format sql-command-[table] for each expanded table, for example the following query:

GET .../api/v1/models/c_tax/106?$expand=c_tax_acct&showsql

will return the following elements in the payload:

    "sql-command": "SELECT C_Tax_ID,AD_Client_ID,AD_Org_ID,IsActive,Created,CreatedBy,Name,Description,Parent_Tax_ID,C_Country_ID,C_Region_ID,To_Country_ID,To_Region_ID,C_TaxCategory_ID,Updated,UpdatedBy,IsDocumentLevel,ValidFrom,IsSummary,Rate,RequiresTaxCertificate,TaxIndicator,IsDefault,IsTaxExempt,SOPOType,IsSalesTax,AD_Rule_ID,C_Tax_UU,C_TaxProvider_ID,C_CountryGroupTo_ID,C_CountryGroupFrom_ID FROM C_Tax WHERE (c_tax_ID=?)

Data Modification

iDempiere supports Create, Update and Delete operation for some or all exposed POs.

Create a PO

To create a PO in a collection, the client sends a POST request to that collection's URL. The POST body MUST contain a single valid entity representation.

Special Entity Type Representations

Image

If you are modifying or creating values of an Image type column/field, the json entity representation must be as follows:

  • id -> the foreign record ID. If not informed a new foreign record will be created and linked to the main record
  • file_name -> the readable file name to be stored at the foreign table
  • url -> an optional URL for the image to be stored at the foreign table
  • data -> a string with the base64 encoded data for the image

Other Resources

GET api/v1/auth/jwk

Calling this endpoint returns the key used to sign the JWT.

By default this endpoint returns nothing. It requires the System Configurator IDEMPIERE_REST_EXPOSE_JWK to be set to Y on System tenant.

SysConfig Keys

IDEMPIERE_REST_EXPOSE_JWK

Y/N - defaults to N

For integration with krakend (see Proxy iDempiere-Rest Through KrakenD) it is necessary to expose the signing key in the endpoint api/v1/auth/jwk

Setting this to N (the default) the endpoint is not exposed, changing to Y it will expose the endpoint.

REST_COLUMNNAME_TOLOWERCASE

Y/N - defaults to N

When set to Y the columnnames are translated to be named as json properties. The first letter is changed to lowercase when the columnname doesn't contain the underline character ( _ )

When set to N (the default) the columnname is unchanged

REST_MAX_RECORDS_SIZE

Numeric, default 100

This is a System SysConfig defining the maximum number of records returned in a get operation.

After changing this SysConfig key a server restart is required.

Note that $top cannot be higher than this configured value.

Also, REST_MAX_RECORDS_SIZE=0 means unlimited, and in this case the $top takes precedence when defined.

REST_USE_SYSCONFIG_SECRET

Y/N, defaults to Y (true)

When set to false (N) iDempiere uses a random key generated every time it is rebooted. Note this creates two problems:

  • The tokens generated do not survive a reboot, because the key is changed on every reboot, if there is a valid token, it becomes invalid immediately after the server is rebooted, requiring a new login
  • The token is generated per server, so they are not valid in a multi-server environment, load balancing the REST API in a multi-server environment can make the API useless because the token of one server is not valid in the other server

When set to true (Y), the default, the tokens are generated and signed using a key saved in the SysConfig REST_TOKEN_SECRET, so they are shared between servers and survive a reboot.

REST_TOKEN_SECRET

In this SysConfig is preserved a random key generated, in case they key is compromised, or as a security measure, a new key can be generated using the process Expire Server Secret

You don't need to touch this SysConfig, it is managed automatically.

Server to Server Tokens

You can generate server to server tokens in the window Rest Auth Token.

Simply fill the fields:

  • Organization
  • User
  • Role
  • Warehouse
  • Language
  • Expire in Minutes (0 means no expiration)

And when saving the token will be generated for these parameters.

01 Rest Auth Token.png

When a token is generated, the flag Active indicates if it is a valid token. To active/inactive a token you can use the process Inactive/Active Token.

02 Activate Inactivate Token.png

Also, you can change the server secret key, and this inactivate all the issued tokens, using the process Expire Server Secret
