Storm UI REST API

The Storm UI daemon provides a REST API that allows you to interact with a Storm cluster, which includes retrieving metrics data and configuration information as well as management operations such as starting or stopping topologies.

Data format

The REST API returns JSON responses and supports JSONP. Clients can pass a callback query parameter to wrap JSON in the callback function.

Using the UI REST API

Note: It is recommended to ignore undocumented elements in the JSON response because future versions of Storm may not support those elements anymore.

REST API Base URL

The REST API is part of the UI daemon of Storm (started by storm ui) and thus runs on the same host and port as the Storm UI (the UI daemon is often run on the same host as the Nimbus daemon). The port is configured by ui.port, which is set to 8080 by default (see defaults.yaml).

The API base URL would thus be:

http://<ui-host>:<ui-port>/api/v1/...

You can use a tool such as curl to talk to the REST API:

# Request the cluster configuration.
# Note: We assume ui.port is configured to the default value of 8080.
$ curl http://<ui-host>:8080/api/v1/cluster/configuration

Impersonating a user in secure environment

In a secure environment an authenticated user can impersonate another user. To impersonate a user the caller must pass doAsUser param or header with value set to the user that the request needs to be performed as. Please see SECURITY.MD to learn more about how to setup impersonation ACLs and authorization. The rest API uses the same configs and acls that are used by nimbus.

Examples:

 1. http://ui-daemon-host-name:8080/api/v1/topology/wordcount-1-1425844354\?doAsUser=testUSer1
 2. curl 'http://localhost:8080/api/v1/topology/wordcount-1-1425844354/activate' -X POST -H 'doAsUser:testUSer1'
