OpenSearch API#

The OpenSearch integration allows you to expose an OpenSearch api endpoint on one or several projects.


To configure the OpenSearch API, follow the steps below:

  1. Open your Squirro project.

  2. Navigate to the Setup space.

  3. Click Settings.

  4. Click OpenSearch API in the left menu.


This studio plugin requires some configuration. To enable it for certain projects you need to add the following configuration snippet to your frontend.ini or common.ini file:

# Whitelist all project ids that expose the opensearch API.
# Only configure projects here that contain public data as of
# today we have no authentication in place.
# Multiple projects can be separated by comma.
project_ids = id1,id2
# use a read-only api token for a non-admin user.
token = abc...
# query cache time in seconds
query_cache_ttl = 60

Once done, click GO TO DESCRIPTION URL to get the link and content of the OpenSearch API description file.

This file can be used to integrate with any OpenSearch-compatible frameworks.
