Subject Re: Re: Re: How to monitor added service in Ambari stack?

Hi Ying,

Following are the curl calls for configurations that should work for you,

curl -u admin:admin -i -X POST -d '{"type": "test-site", "tag": "version1",
"properties" : { "test" : "test" }}'

curl -u admin:admin -i -X PUT -d '{ "Clusters" : {"desired_configs":
{"type": "test-site", "tag" : "version1" }}}'

One more suggestion, the cluster creation and service creation can be
replicated by looking at the web browser console and filtering out the PUT
and POST calls that the Ambari web UI makes to the Ambari backend. The web
UI uses the same REST calls that can be used from "curl" - like web client.
If you can deploy a cluster on a VM and capture these calls, the same calls
can be modified and replayed to add new service, etc.

For the exception regarding the service installation, could you check if
the host components in Step 5 were actually created. Following API call
will give you plenty of info,

Here is the doc link to help understand the API design,

Best Regards,
