How to use ThirdEye API

ThirdEye exposes a consistent CRUD API. This make it easy to use ThirdEye as a headless service, from your apps. The easiest way to discover and try the different endpoints is to use Swagger.

Using Swagger

Swagger is exposed by the coordinator at [coordinator_url]/swagger.
If you use StarTree ThirdEye or the helm charts, Swagger is also exposed by the frontend app at [your_thirdeye_url]/swagger.

  1. Go to [your_thirdeye_url]/swagger
  2. If your instance uses authentication, click the "Authorize" button and provide a bearer token.
  3. If your instance use HTTPS, switch HTTP to HTTPS. Swagger UI
  4. Try the endpoints.

Obtaining a bearer token.

If your instance use authentication, the frontend passes a Bearer Token when performing requests.
In your browser, in the devtools, you can see the Bearer token.

Swagger bearer token

You can copy and paste the token in the Swagger UI.

Obtaining a long-lasting token (Basic auth token).

StarTree cloud users: To obtain a basic auth token for StarTree ThirdEye, contact StarTree Tech Support, and then complete step 3 below (skipping steps 1-2).

Step 1 - Update ThirdEye configuration in the Helm chart

enabled: true
enabled: true
- username: <USERNAME>
password: <PASSWORD>

Step 2 - Use the generated Basic Auth token in requests

To authenticate a request, add the Authorization header with the token value as the base64 encoded value of username:password prefixed with Basic.

Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46cGFzcw== where YWRtaW46cGFzcw== is the base64 encoded value of admin:pass.

To encode on macOs:

echo -D '<USERNAME>:<PASSWORD>' | base64

Step 3 - Use the Basic Auth token in Swagger

Copy and paste the token YWRtaW46cGFzcw== in the Swagger UI as Basic YWRtaW46cGFzcw==.
