Overview

Introduction


The Fedora HTTP API is generally a RESTful API. HTTP methods like GET, PUT, POST and DELETE are implemented on most resource paths. The API also relies heavily on content negotiation to deliver context-appropriate responses, and a HATEOAS-driven text/html response (providing a decent GUI experience on top of the repository).

The Fedora RDF-based responses may be serialized as:


  • application/ld+json
  • application/n-triples
  • application/rdf+xml
  • text/n3 (or text/rdf+n3)
  • text/plain
  • text/turtle (or application/x-turtle)

The text/html response also includes embedded RDFa markup.

Fedora  implements the Linked Data Platform 1.0 Architecture, which:

[...] describes the use of HTTP for accessing, updating, creating and deleting resources from servers that expose their resources as Linked Data.  It provides clarifications and extensions of the rules of Linked Data [LINKED-DATA]:

  1. Use URIs as names for things
  2. Use HTTP URIs so that people can look up those names
  3. When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information, using the standards (RDF*, SPARQL)
  4. Include links to other URIs, so that they can discover more things

Endpoints

Resources

Repository objects can be loosely divided into two classes of resources:

 - Containers ("fedora:Container"), containing RDF properties and 0 or more child resources
 - Binaries, containing any binary payload (roughly corresponding to Fedora 3 datastreams)

Containers

RESTful HTTP API - Containers

Request URI: /path/to/some/resource

Methods: GET, POST, PUT, PATCH, HEAD, OPTIONS, DELETE



GET  Retrieve the content of the resource

Request Headers:

RANGE Byte range of content to retrieve, of the form: "Range: bytes=500-999"

ACCEPT   RDF sources support content negotiation with these formats: application/ld+json, application/n-triples, application/rdf+xml, application/x-turtle, text/html, text/n3, text/plain, text/rdf+n3, text/turtle

Note: JSON-LD profiles can be requested by using the following Accept headers:

Accept: application/ld+json; profile=\"http://www.w3.org/ns/json-ld#expanded\"" - default
Accept: application/ld+json; profile=\"http://www.w3.org/ns/json-ld#compacted\""
Accept: application/ld+json; profile=\"http://www.w3.org/ns/json-ld#flattened\"" 

LIMIT Number of child resources to list. If paired with Accept: (X)HTML, the default is 100. Otherwise, the default is -1 (all children are listed)

IF-NONE-MATCH IF-MODIFIED-SINCE

PREFER 

return=representation
return=representation; include=" URIs "
return=representation; omit=" URIs "

where representation indicates that links to other resources and their properties should also be included. URIs is a space-separate list of LDP defined preferences, and also:

URIDescription
http://fedora.info/definitions/fcrepo#PreferInboundReferencesInclude assertions from other Fedora resources to this node (excluded from representation by default)
http://fedora.info/definitions/fcrepo#ServerManagedEmbed server managed properties in the representation (enabled by default)
http://www.w3.org/ns/oa#PreferContainedDescriptions  Embed "child" resources in the returned representation

http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#PreferContainment

Include/Exclude "ldp:contains" assertions to contained resources (enabled by default)

http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#PreferMembership

Include/Exclude assertions to member resources established by the Direct and Indirect containers (enabled by default)

http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#PreferMinimalContainer

Include/Exclude triples that would be present when the container is empty (enabled by default)

POST Create new resources within a LDP container

Request Headers:

CONTENT-DISPOSITION (Optional) The filename provided in the content disposition header will be stored in a ebucore:filename property. (See 'Example (6): Uploaded file with filename')

CONTENT-TYPE (Optional) MIME type of the uploaded binary or RDF content (See ' Example (2): Create a new child binary resource with empty content ')

If the MIME type corresponds to a supported RDF format, the uploaded content will be parsed as RDF and used to populate the child node properties.

RDF will be interpreted using the current resource as the base URI (e.g. <> will be expanded to the current URI). Namespaces must be declared in full.

If the MIME type corresponds to a supported RDF format, and you also provide a Link: <http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#NonRDFSource>; rel="type" header. Then the contents will be stored as a binary resource with the provided MIME type as Content-type.

For other MIME types, the uploaded content will be used to create a binary resource.

Supported RDF formats: text/turtle, text/rdf+n3, application/n3, text/n3, application/rdf+xml, application/n-triples, application/ld+json

SLUG (Optional) A suggested name for the new child resource, which the repository may ignore.

The slug you provide does not guarantee the location of the created resource. Clients must check the Location header for the path to the created resource.

DIGEST (Optional) A way of providing one or more checksums (SHA-1, SHA-256, MD5) which will be checked against the uploaded content to ensure error-free transfer. The header is interpreted according to RFC-3230 (See 'Example (4): Uploaded file with checksum' and 'Example (5): Uploaded file with checksum mismatch') If the provided checksum does not match the calculated value for the uploaded file a 409 Conflict will be returned. See PATCH example for documentation on how to change the default algorithm used during on-demand fixity checking.   Valid `Digest` algorithms/values are: sha, sha-256, sha-512, sha-512/256 or md5.

LINK With a value containing subfield rel= http://fedora.info/definitions/fcrepo#ExternalContent the client may provide binary content from an external path. See the external content documentation for details about syntax and handling options (note, this is disabled by default), and Example 7 for usage.

Status:

201 Created

404 Not Found (resource does not exist – use PUT to specify a new resource name)

409 Conflict (checksum mismatch)



PUT  Create a resource with a specified path, or replace the binary content or triples associated with a resource with the binary content or triples provided in the request body.


For RDFSource resources

Some resource properties are repository managed and cannot be removed or modified. Any attempt to do so may result in a 4xx error.


Request Headers:

CONTENT-DISPOSITION   (Optional) The filename provided in the content disposition header will be stored in a ebucore:filename property. (See 'Example (6): Uploaded file with filename' in POST above)

CONTENT-TYPE  (Optional) MIME type of the uploaded binary or RDF content

If the MIME type corresponds to a supported RDF format, the uploaded content will be parsed as RDF and used to populate the child node properties.

RDF will be interpreted using the current resource as the base URI (e.g. <> will be expanded to the current URI). Namespaces must be declared in full.

If the MIME type corresponds to a supported RDF format, and you also provide a Link: <http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#NonRDFSource>; rel="type" header. Then the contents will be stored as a binary resource with the provided MIME type as Content-type.

For other MIME types, the uploaded content will be used to create a binary resource.

Supported RDF formats: text/turtle, text/rdf+n3, application/n3, text/n3, application/rdf+xml, application/n-triples, application/ld+json

IF-MATCH

IF-UNMODIFIED-SINCE

X-IF-STATE-TOKEN Allows the client to specify a state token as defined in section 3.10 of the Fedora API

DIGEST (Optional) A way of providing one or more checksums (SHA-1, SHA-256, MD5) which will be checked against the uploaded content to ensure error-free transfer. The header is interpreted according to RFC-3230 (See 'Example (3): Creating new binary resource at a specified path') If the provided checksum does not match the calculated value for the uploaded file a 409 Conflict will be returned. See Fixity Service for documentation on how to change the default algorithm used during on-demand fixity checking.  Valid `Digest` algorithms/values are: sha, sha-256, sha-512, sha-512/256, or md5.

PREFER With the value handling=lenient allows replacing the properties of a container without having to provide all of the server-managed triples.

LINK With a value containing subfield rel=http://fedora.info/definitions/fcrepo#ExternalContent the client may provide binary content from an external path . See the external content documentation for details about syntax and handling options (note, this is disabled by default), and Example 4 for usage.


Example (1): Updating properties with RDF content

Note the handling=lenient  prefer header instructs the server to ignore any server managed triples in the request.

Without this prefer header the same request body would result in the following

curl -u fedoraAdmin:fedoraAdmin -i -X PUT -H "Content-Type: text/turtle" --data-binary "@new-triples.rdf" "http://localhost:8080/rest/path/to/resource"

Status: 409 Conflict

Link: <http://localhost:8080/static/constraints/ServerManagedPropertyException.rdf>; rel="http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#constrainedBy"
Content-Length: 1099

Body:

The server managed type (http://fedora.info/definitions/v4/repository#Container) cannot be modified by the client.
The server managed predicate (http://fedora.info/definitions/v4/repository#createdBy) cannot be modified by the client.
The server managed predicate (http://fedora.info/definitions/v4/repository#created) cannot be modified by the client.
The server managed predicate (http://fedora.info/definitions/v4/repository#lastModifiedBy) cannot be modified by the client.
The server managed type (http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#BasicContainer) cannot be modified by the client.
The server managed type (http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#Resource) cannot be modified by the client.
The server managed type (http://fedora.info/definitions/v4/repository#Resource) cannot be modified by the client.
The server managed predicate (http://fedora.info/definitions/v4/repository#lastModified) cannot be modified by the client.
The server managed type (http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#Container) cannot be modified by the client.
The server managed type (http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#RDFSource) cannot be modified by the client.


Note that to prevent conflicts, the value of the fedora:lastModified triple in the request must match its current counterpart in the repository. The way to ensure this is to base the changes in a PUT request on the RDF content obtained in an immediately prior GET request, and never try to PUT consecutively, as this will result in a 400 error.

Note: Default Fixity Algorithm

When ingesting a binary resource, one or more checksums may be provided, see API reference (POST example 4, POST example 4b, PUT example 3). The supported algorithms are: SHA-1, SHA-256 and MD5. 

By default, the algorithm used by the /fcr:fixity endpoint is SHA-1. However, that may be changed - per resource - to one of the other supported algorithms by configuring the property: fedoraconfig:defaultDigestAlgorithm . See API reference (PATCH example 2).


Transactions


RESTful HTTP API - Transactions

POST Create a new transaction

After retrieving a transaction URI from the "Location" header in the response to the following HTTP request, the client can execute any POST/PUT/PATCH/DELETE/GET REST API method within the transaction scope by including the transaction URI in the "Atomic-ID" request header.

Transactions are automatically closed and rolled back after 3 minutes of inactivity. Transactions can be refreshed by POSTing to the transaction URI

Example:

curl -i -X POST "http://localhost:8080/rest/fcr:tx" 

Response:

Status: 201 Created
 
Headers:
Location: http://localhost:8080/rest/fcr:tx/ce4bb2bf-8ced-4c7d-b281-f2132e3064bb
Atomic-Expires: Thu, 07 May 2020 17:34:37 GMT

Usage:

When a transaction has been created, it will return a Location header.  Use this location (transaction URI) as the value of the "Atomic-ID" request header for performing REST API operations within the transaction.  When you are done with the transaction, either commit the transaction to the repository by making a PUT request to the transaction URI,  or discard the changes and rollback the transaction by making a DELETE request to the transaction URI.

For further examples of the usage of Transactions, see: Transactions

Status:

201  Created: if the transaction is created successfully


GET  Get the current status of the repository in a transaction

To get the status of a transaction, perform a GET request on the transaction URI that was previously returned as the value of the "Location" header from the transaction creation request. The "Atomic-Expires" header indicates the time at which the transaction will auto-rollback.

Example:

curl -i -X GET "http://localhost:8080/rest/fcr:tx/ce4bb2bf-8ced-4c7d-b281-f2132e3064bb"

Response:

Status: 204 No Content

Headers:
Expires: Thu, 7 May 2020 17:46:17 GMT


Status:

204 No Content: If the request was successful

404 Not Found: Transaction not found

410 Gone: Transaction expired



POST Keep an existing transaction alive

By performing a POST request on an existing transaction URI, the transaction's expiration time is extended by the value of the session timeout duration (default: 3 minutes)

Example:

curl -i -X POST "http://localhost:8080/rest/fcr:tx/ce4bb2bf-8ced-4c7d-b281-f2132e3064bb"

Response:

Status: 204 No Content
 
Headers:
Atomic-Expires: Thu, 7 May 2020 18:00:38 GMT


Status:

204  No Content: if the transaction is renewed successfully

404  Not Found: if the transaction doesn't exist

410  Gone: Transaction expired



PUT Commit an open transaction


Any operations you made within the scope of the transaction will be applied together, meaning if any of them fail, the whole transaction will fail.

Example:

curl -X PUT "http://localhost:8080/rest/fcr:tx/ce4bb2bf-8ced-4c7d-b281-f2132e3064bb"

Response:

Status: 204 No Content

Status:

204 No Content: if the transaction is committed successfully

404 Not Found: if the transaction doesn't exist

409 Conflict: Transaction did not commit successfully

410 Gone: Transaction expired



DELETE Rollback and close an open transaction

Example:

curl -i -X DELETE "http://localhost:8080/rest/fcr:tx/ce4bb2bf-8ced-4c7d-b281-f2132e3064bb"

Response:

Status: 204 No Content

Status:

204 No Content: if the transaction is discarded successfully

410 Gone: if the transaction has already been committed or rolled back

404 Not Found: if the transaction does not exist
