Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-8029) Modernize and standardize Solr APIs
Date Mon, 16 Nov 2015 11:57:11 GMT


Noble Paul commented on SOLR-8029:

OK +1 to what [~elyograg] , [] and  [~jsstylos] have recommended
/v2/collections (I am using plural here. not the singular 'collection' )

But the {{/v2/core}} is not there because I assume it is to house the core admin API

It should be under {{/v2/node/cores}}

I also wish to know where to put the admin UI

I propose it should be at the same place {{/admin}}

> Solr APIs have organically evolved and they are sometimes inconsistent with each other
or not in sync with the widely followed conventions of HTTP protocol. Trying to make incremental
changes to make them modern is like applying band-aid. So, we have done a complete rethink
of what the APIs should be. The most notable aspects of the API are as follows:
> The new set of APIs will be placed under a new path {{/solr2}}. The legacy APIs will
continue to work under the {{/solr}} path as they used to and they will be eventually deprecated.
> There are 3 types of requests in the new API 
> * {{/solr2/<collection-name>/*}} : Operations on specific collections 
> * {{/solr2/_cluster/*}} : Cluster-wide operations which are not specific to any collections.

> * {{/solr2/_node/*}} : Operations on the node receiving the request. This is the counter
part of the core admin API
> This will be released as part of a major release. Check the link given below for the
full specification.  Your comments are welcome
