Write API Development

Timeline

The Alpha release for the write API is planned for the W/C 19th of September 24th October. This will allow at least a subset of the initially panned urls to be tested, including authentication.

Initially supported urls

Details of the methods implemented in the write API can be found on Technical Documentation page.

Proposed authorisation mechanism

The proposed method for authentication for the write API is initially by X509 certificate. Each site will be able to define a list of authorised robot DNs that may make changes through the write API. The same authentication mechanism will be used as for the rest of GOCDB.
