How to use curl for build service development

Note, the commandline client osc has a way to issue generic commands. So you may not need to resort to curl.
See osc help api.

Curl is a command line tool to transfer data from or to a server, using one of the supported protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, TFTP, DICT, TELNET, LDAP or FILE).

The command is designed to work without user interaction.

It can help testing the openSUSE build service API a lot while development.

Here are the most commonly used commands:

GET request

curl -u username:password -X GET https://$APISERVER/any/path

PUT request

curl -u username:password -X PUT -T /path/to/file/to/put https://$APISERVER/any/path

POST request

curl -u username:password -X POST -T /path/to/file/to/post https://$APISERVER/any/path

DELETE request

curl -u username:password -X DELETE https://$APISERVER/any/path

Examples for openSUSE build service

Please do the following bevore you test the commands below:

export ARCH=i586
export FILENAME=filename
export PACKAGE=package
export PROJECT=openSUSE:Factory
export REPOSITORY=standard
export REVISION=r1
export USERNAME=username

Get a list of published i586 binaries for a project

curl  -u $USERNAME:$PASSWORD -X GET https://$APISERVER/published/$PROJECT/openSUSE_10.3/i586

Trigger rebuild for all packages in arch & repo

curl -u $USERNAME:$PASSWORD -X POST -H "Content-Length:0" "https://$APISERVER/build/$PROJECT?cmd=rebuild&arch=$ARCH&repository=$REPOSITORY"

Trigger a wipe of excluded packages

To remove packages with "ExcludeArch:" in specfile finally for an architecture, use
