Operations API

The operations API provides a full set of capabilities for configuring, deploying, administering, and controlling HarperDB. To send operations to the operations API, you send a POST request to the operations API endpoint, which defaults to port 9925, on the root path, where the body is the operations object. These requests need to authenticated, which can be done with basic auth or JWT authentication. For example, a request to create a table would be performed as:

POST http://my-harperdb-server:9925/
Authorization: Basic YourBase64EncodedInstanceUser:Pass
Content-Type: application/json

    "operation": "create_table",
    "table": "my-table"

The operations API reference is available below and categorized by topic:
