/api/admin/projects/:projectId

info

In order to access the admin API endpoints you need to identify yourself. Unless you're using the none authentication method, you'll need to create an admin token and add an Authorization header using the token.

Fetching Feature Toggles

Available since Unleash v4.3

In this document we will guide you on how you can work with feature toggles and their configuration. Please remember the following details:

  • All feature toggles exists inside a project.
  • A feature toggle exists across all environments.
  • A feature toggle can take different configuration, activation strategies, per environment.
note

This document lists HTTP request data and cURL and HTTPie command examples for all endpoints. Further examples use HTTPie.

Get Project Overview

This endpoint will give you an general overview of a project. It will return essential details about a project, in addition it will return all feature toggles and high level environment details per feature toggle.

Example Query

http GET http://localhost:4242/api/admin/projects/default Authorization:$KEY

Example response:

{
"description": "Default project",
"features": [
{

Feature Variants

Put variants for Feature Toggle

Create (overwrite) variants for a feature toggle (example data)
PUT <unleash-url>/api/admin/projects/:projectId/features/:featureName/variants
Authorization: <API-token>
content-type: application/json

[
{
"name": "variant1",
"weightType": "fix",
"weight": 650,
"payload": {
"type": "json",
"value": "{\"key1\": \"value\", \"key2\": 123}"
},
"stickiness": "userId",
"overrides": [
{
"contextName": "userId",
"values": [
"1",
"23"
]
}
]
},
{
"name": "variant2",
"weightType": "variable",
"weight": 123
}
]

This overwrites the current variants for the feature toggle specified in the :featureName parameter. The backend will validate the input for the following invariants

  • If there are variants, there needs to be at least one variant with weightType: variable
  • The sum of the weights of variants with weightType: fix must be below 1000 (< 1000)

The backend will also distribute remaining weight up to 1000 after adding the variants with weightType: fix together amongst the variants of weightType: variable

Example Query

echo '[
{
"name": "variant1",
"weightType": "fix",
"weight": 650,

Manage project users and roles

You can add and remove users to a project using the /api/admin/projects/:projectId/users/:userId/roles/:roleId endpoint. When adding or removing users, you must also provide the ID for the role to give them (when adding) or the ID of the role they currently have (when removing).

Add a user to a project

Add a user to a project (example data)
POST <unleash-url>/api/admin/projects/:projectId/users/:userId/roles/:roleId
Authorization: <API-token>
content-type: application/json

{
"userId": 25,
"projectId": "myProject",
"roleId": "1"
}

This will add a user to a project and give the user a specified role within that project.

URL parameters

ParameterTypeDescriptionExample value
userIdintegerThe ID of the user you want to add to the project.1
projectIdstringThe id of the project to add the user to."MyCoolProject"
roleIdintegerThe id of the role you want to assign to the new user in the project.7

Responses

Responses data
200 OK

The user was added to the project with the specified role. This response has no body.

400 Bad Request

The user already exists in the project and cannot be added again:

[
{
"msg": "User already has access to project=<projectId>"
}
]

Example query

The following query would add the user with ID 42 to the MyCoolProject project and give them the role with ID 13.

http POST \
http://localhost:4242/api/admin/projects/MyCoolProject/users/42/roles/13 \
Authorization:$KEY

content-type: application/json

{
"userId": 25,
"projectId": "myProject",
"roleId": "3"
}

This will change the user's project role to the role specified by :roleId. If the user has not been added to the project, nothing happens.

URL parameters

ParameterTypeDescriptionExample value
userIdintegerThe ID of the user whose role you want to update.1
projectIdstringThe id of the relevant project."MyCoolProject"
roleIdintegerThe role ID of the role you wish to assign the user.7

Responses

"msg": "A project must have at least one owner."
}
]

Example query

The following query would change the role of the user with ID 42 the role with ID 13 in the MyCoolProject project.

http PUT \

Authorization:$KEY

Remove a user from a project

Delete a user from a project
DELETE <unleash-url>/api/admin/projects/:projectId/users/:userId/roles/:roleId
Authorization: <API-token>
content-type: application/json

This removes the specified role from the user in the project. Because users can only have one role in a project, this effectively removes the user from the project. The user must have the role indicated by the :roleId URL parameter for the request to succeed.

URL parameters

ParameterTypeDescriptionExample value
userIdintegerThe ID of the user you want to remove from the project.1
projectIdstringThe id of the project to remove the user from."MyCoolProject"
roleIdintegerThe current role the of the user you want to remove from the project.7

Responses

Responses data
200 OK

The user no longer has the specified role in the project. If the user had this role prior to this API request, they will have been removed from the project. This response has no body.

400 Bad Request

You tried to remove the only user with the role owner in the project:

[
{
"msg": "A project must have at least one owner."
}
]

Example query

The following query would remove the user with ID 42 and role ID 13 from the MyCoolProject project.
