Eggplant Performance Studio REST API

Many of the actions that you can perform in the Eggplant Performance Studio user interface (UI) can also be automated by using the REST API. This ability could be useful if you run performance tests on a regular basis and want to automate the process. For example, you could use the REST API to integrate Eggplant Performance into a continuous integration (CI) environment.

Starting the REST Server

The path to the REST server is as follows:

<location_where_you_installed_eggPlant Performance>\TestControllerServer\bin\testControllerServer.exe

For example:

C:\Program Files (x86)\eggPlant Performance\TestControllerServer\bin\testControllerServer.exe

You can specify a different port by using the -p command line option.

testControllerServer.exe -p 8888

The REST server is a standalone web server that listens for HTTP requests on a specified port.

To start the REST server, run testControllerServer.exe from the command line. By default, the REST server listens for requests on port 5001. You can specify a different port by using the -p command line option.

Version

Get Eggplant Performance version

curl "http://localhost:5001/studio/api/1.0/version"

The above command returns JSON structured like this:

{
  "version": "8.0.0.154"
}

Use this method to get the version number for the running instance of Eggplant Performance.

HTTP Request

GET /studio/api/1.0/version

Response JSON

Property Type Description
version string The version number

Workspaces

List workspaces

curl "http://localhost:5001/studio/api/1.0"

The above command returns JSON structured like this:

{
  "workspaces": {
    "My First Workspace": "/studio/api/1.0/My%20First%20Workspace",
    "My Second Workspace": "/studio/api/1.0/My%20Second%20Workspace"
  }
}

Use this method to list all the workspaces available in Eggplant Performance Studio.

HTTP Request

GET /studio/api/1.0

Response JSON

Property Type Description
workspaces object Keys are workspace names, values are URLs

Create a workspace

curl "http://localhost:5001/studio/api/1.0/create_workspace"
  -H "Content-Type: application/json"
  --data-binary $'{"name": "My Workspace", "location": "C:/My Workspace"}'

The example POST data:

{
  "name": "My Workspace",
  "location": "C:/My Workspace"
}

The above command returns JSON structured like this:

{
  "My Workspace": "/studio/api/1.0/My%20Workspace"
}

Use this method to create a new Eggplant Performance workspace with the specified name.

The folder specified as the location will become the workspace folder, containing the workspace files. It is recommended to specify a folder which doesn't yet exist - it will be created if necessary.

If a workspace with the specified name already exists, this method will have no effect.

HTTP Request

POST /studio/api/1.0/create_workspace

The POST data must be sent in JSON format, and the Content-Type header set to application/json.

Property Type Description
name string New workspace name
location string Path to new folder, in which the workspace will be created

Response HTTP status code

HTTP status code Meaning
200 OK A workspace with the specified name already exists
201 Created The new workspace was created successfully

Response JSON

Property Type Description
workspace name string A URL representing the newly-created workspace

Check access to workspace

curl "http://localhost:5001/studio/api/1.0/My%20Workspace/check_access"

The above command returns JSON structured like this:

{
  "message": "Workspace My Workspace accessed successfully"
}

Alternately, if the workspace is locked:

{
  "error": "Failed to open workspace My Workspace. It may already be in use by another instance of eggplant Performance."
}

Use this method to check whether the specified workspace is in use by another instance of Eggplant Performance.

If Eggplant Performance Studio is running and has the workspace open, the workspace will be locked. In that case, many of the other REST methods will not work until Eggplant Performance Studio is closed, or has switched to another workspace.

HTTP Request

GET /studio/api/1.0/<workspace>/check_access

Response JSON

Property Type Description
message string A success message - only present if the workspace is accessible
error string A failure message - only present if the workspace is not accessible

Projects

List projects

curl "http://localhost:5001/studio/api/1.0/My%20Workspace/projects"

The above command returns JSON structured like this:

{
  "projects": {
    "My Project": "/studio/api/1.0/My%20Workspace/projects/My%20Project"
  }
}

Use this method to list all the projects available in the specified workspace.

HTTP Request

GET /studio/api/1.0/<workspace>/projects

Response JSON

Property Type Description
projects object Keys are project names, values are URLs

Create a project

curl "http://localhost:5001/studio/api/1.0/My%20Workspace/create_project"
  -H "Content-Type: application/json"
  --data-binary $'{"name": "My Project"}'

The example POST data:

{
  "name": "My Project",
}

The above command returns JSON structured like this:

{
  "My Project": "/studio/api/1.0/My%20Workspace/projects/My%20Project"
}

Use this method to create a new Eggplant Performance project with the specified name, in the specified workspace.

HTTP Request

POST /studio/api/1.0/<workspace>/create_project

The POST data must be sent in JSON format, and the Content-Type header set to application/json.

Use this method to rebuild all the scripts within the specified workspace and project.

Eggplant Performance scripts are written in compiled languages: Java, C# or C++. This means that if scripts are added or modified, a build must take place before a test can be run.

This method performs a build, rebuilding (which includes compiling) all scripts in the workspace and project.

HTTP Request

POST /studio/api/1.0/<workspace>/projects/<project>/rebuild

The POST data must be sent in JSON format, and the Content-Type header set to application/json.

The POST data has no properties, it should just be an empty JSON object: {}

Response JSON

Property Type Description
Java object Build output object - only present if Java scripts were built
C# object Build output object - only present if C# scripts were built
C++ object Build output object - only present if C++ scripts were built

The Build output objects:

Property Type Description
success boolean Whether the scripts built successfully, or contained errors
output array[string] The lines of log output from the build process

If success is false, you will be unable to run a test until any script problems have been diagnosed and fixed. The output lines may contain information to help you do that.
