class pulpcore.plugin.viewsets.BaseFilterSet(data=None, queryset=None, *, request=None, prefix=None)

Class to override django_filter’s FilterSet and provide a way to set help text

By default, this class will use predefined text and the field name to create help text for the filter. However, this can be overriden by setting a help_text dict with the the field name mapped to some help text:

help_text = {‘name__in’: ‘Lorem ipsum dolor’, ‘pulp_last_updated__lt’: ‘blah blah’}

classmethod filter_for_field(field, name, lookup_expr)

Looks up and initializes a filter and returns it. Also, sets the help text on the filter.

Parameters
  • field – The field class for the filter

  • name – The name of filter field

  • lookup_expr – The lookup expression that specifies how the field is matched

Returns

an initialized Filter object with help text

Return type

django_filters.Filter

Raises

rest_framework.exceptions.ValidationError – on invalid search string

class pulpcore.plugin.viewsets.NamedModelViewSet(**kwargs)

A customized named ModelViewSet that knows how to register itself with the Pulp API router.

This viewset is discoverable by its name. “Normal” Django Models and Master/Detail models are supported by the register_with method.

Variables
  • lookup_field (str) – The name of the field by which an object should be looked up, in addition to any parent lookups if this ViewSet is nested. Defaults to ‘pk’

  • endpoint_name (str) – The name of the final path segment that should identify the ViewSet’s collection endpoint.

  • nest_prefix (str) – Optional prefix under which this ViewSet should be nested. This must correspond to the “parent_prefix” of a router with rest_framework_nested.NestedMixin. None indicates this ViewSet should not be nested.

  • parent_lookup_kwargs (dict) – Optional mapping of key names that would appear in self.kwargs to django model filter expressions that can be used with the corresponding value from self.kwargs, used only by a nested ViewSet to filter based on the parent object’s identity.

  • schema (DefaultSchema) – The schema class to use by default in a viewset.

Constructor. Called in the URLconf; can contain helpful extra keyword arguments, and other things.

static extract_pk(uri)

Resolve a resource URI to a simple PK value.

Provides a means to resolve an href passed in a POST body to a primary key. Doesn’t assume anything about whether the resource corresponding to the URI passed in actually exists.

Note

Cannot be used with nested URIs where the PK of the final resource is not present. e.g. RepositoryVersion URI consists of repository PK and version number - no RepositoryVersion PK is present within the URI.

Parameters

uri (str) – A resource URI.

Returns

The primary key of the resource extracted from the URI.

Return type

primary_key (uuid.uuid4)

Raises

rest_framework.exceptions.ValidationError – on invalid URI.

get_parent_field_and_object()

For nested ViewSets, retrieve the nested parent implied by the url.

Returns

(parent field name, parent)

Return type

tuple

Raises

django.http.Http404 – When the parent implied by the url does not exist. Synchronous use should allow this to bubble up and return a 404.

get_parent_object()

For nested ViewSets, retrieve the nested parent implied by the url.

Returns

parent model object

Return type

pulpcore.app.models.Model

Raises

django.http.Http404 – When the parent implied by the url does not exist. Synchronous use should allow this to bubble up and return a 404.

get_queryset()

Gets a QuerySet based on the current request.

For nested ViewSets, this adds parent filters to the result returned by the superclass. For non-nested ViewSets, this returns the original QuerySet unchanged.

Additional permissions-based filtering is provided for ViewSets that declare a queryset_filtering_required_permission attribute naming the permission users must have to view an object. This includes receiving the permission through either model-level, object-level, and access through either a user or group.

Returns

The queryset returned by the superclass with additional

filters applied that match self.parent_lookup_kwargs, to scope the results to only those associated with the parent object. Additionally the QuerySet is filtered by the permission named if the ViewSet declares a queryset_filtering_required_permission attribute.

Return type

django.db.models.query.QuerySet

static get_resource(uri, model)

Resolve a resource URI to an instance of the resource.

Provides a means to resolve an href passed in a POST body to an instance of the resource.

Parameters
  • uri (str) – A resource URI.

  • model (django.models.Model) – A model class.

Returns

The resource fetched from the DB.

Return type

django.models.Model

Raises

rest_framework.exceptions.ValidationError – on invalid URI or resource not found.

get_serializer_class()

Fetch the serializer class to use for the request.

The default behavior is to use the “serializer_class” attribute on the viewset. We override that for the case where a “minimal_serializer_class” attribute is defined and where the request contains a query parameter of “minimal=True”.

The intention is that ViewSets can define a second, more minimal serializer with only the most important fields.

initial(request, *args, **kwargs)

Runs anything that needs to occur prior to calling the method handler.

For nested ViewSets, it checks that the parent object exists, otherwise return 404. For non-nested Viewsets, this does nothing.

class pulpcore.plugin.viewsets.NewDistributionFilter(data=None, queryset=None, *, request=None, prefix=None)
class pulpcore.plugin.viewsets.NoArtifactContentUploadViewSet(**kwargs)

create(request)

Create a content unit.

class pulpcore.plugin.viewsets.OperationPostponedResponse(task, request)

An HTTP response class for returning 202 and a spawned task.

This response object should be used by views that dispatch asynchronous tasks. The most common use case is for sync and publish operations. When JSON is requested, the response will look like the following:

{
    "task": "/pulp/api/v3/tasks/735633bc-eb41-4737-b436-c7c6914f34b1/"
}
Parameters
