Subject Re: How To pass parameter to ambari stack
Date Fri, 07 Nov 2014 00:16:05 GMT
Hi Raveesh,

You can pass data directly to the agent by specifying part of the request info using the _name
of the component itself_.  For example, Flume agents are a many-per-host, and they are individually
controlled with this mechanism.  Consider the following command to stop Flume:

PUT /api/v1/clusters/c1/hosts/h1/host_components/FLUME_HANDLER
  "RequestInfo": {
    "context":"Stop Flume a1",
    "operation_level":  {
  "Body": {
    "HostRoles": {

In Flume's case, the value in "flume_handler" is the agent process to target for stopping
and is picked up by the agent script.  In the absence of that value, all agents are stopped
(similar to how a "regular" stop operation works).
