Actions

newPico

Creates a new pico.

ParameterDatatypeRequiredDefault
<parent_id><string>NOthe running pico_id


engine:newPico() setting(resp)
/*
	{
		"id" : <new_pico_id>,
        "parent_id" : <current pico_id>,
	}
*/

Note: newPico does not provide an eci. This action is used in conjunction with engine:createChannel to create a pico with both an id and eci. See wranglerNPE.krl for an example of how to fully create a pico according to a given prototype.


removePico

ParameterDatatypeRequiredDefault
<pico_id><string>NOthe running pico_id


engine:removePico(id)


newPolicy

Creates a new policy.

ParameterDatatypeRequired
<policy><map>YES


engine:newPolicy({
    name: "only allow foo/bar events",
    event: {
        allow: [
            {domain: "foo", type: "bar"}
        ]
    }
}) setting(resp)
/*
	{
        id: "1234",
    	name: "only allow foo/bar events",
        event: {
            allow: [{domain: "foo", type: "bar"}],
            deny: [],
        },
        query: {allow: [], deny: []}
	}
*/

For more description on how these policies work see: https://github.com/Picolab/pico-engine/pull/350#issue-160657235

removePolicy

Removes a policy. It will error if any channels are still using it.

ParameterDatatypeRequired
<policy_id><string>YES


engine:removePolicy("1234")


newChannel

Creates a new channel for a pico.

ParameterDatatypeRequiredDefault
<pico_id><string>NOthe running pico_id
<name><string>YES
<type><string>YES
<policy_id><string>YES


engine:newChannel(name = "channel_name", type = "channel_type", policy_id = "1234") setting(resp)
/*
	{
		"id" : <new_eci>,
        "pico_id": <pico_id>,
		"name": "channel_name",
		"type": "channel_type",
		"policy_id": "1234"
 	}
*/

Note: "id" in the resp body is the given pico's new channel eci, not the original id passed into the function.

removeChannel

Removes a channel whose eci matches the provided eci. 

ParameterDatatypeRequired
<eci><string>YES


engine:removeChannel("eci123...")


registerRuleset

ParameterDatatypeRequired
<url><string>YES
<base><string>NO


Fetch the ruleset krl code given by the `url` and register in the engine.

If you provide `base` then it will be resolved with the url. For example, `base` is  "http://raw.githubusercontent.com/" and `url` is "/username/repository1/file.txt" then the engine will register `http://raw.githubusercontent.com/username/repository1/file.txt`

Attempting to register a ruleset with the same rid as a rule that is already registered will pull the ruleset from the given base/url and act as an update action, overwriting the current file with the one from the remote repository.

If you register a ruleset sharing a rid with a system ruleset, the system ruleset will be restored when the engine is restarted.

engine:registerRuleset("some.cool.ruleset.krl", base = "http://example.com/krl-files/") setting(resp)
/*
    "some.cool.ruleset.id"
*/


unregisterRuleset

Unregisters the ruleset given by the rid, or list of rids. It will throw an error if the ruleset is installed on any picos, or depended on by another ruleset.

ParameterDatatypeRequired
<rid>string | arrayYES


engine:unregisterRuleset("myRuleset")


engine:unregisterRuleset(["rid.1", "rid.2"])


installRuleset

Installs ruleset(s) into a pico.  

ParameterDatatypeRequiredDefault
<pico_id><string>NOthe running pico_id
<rid>string | array

NO


<url><string>NO
<base><string>NO


The "base" key will have a value that contains the domain name where your krl file is located. ex:  "http://raw.githubusercontent.com"

The "url" key will complete the path appended to the base. ex: "/repository1/file.txt"

There are three options provided for a successful install with these parameters:
1) You may provide the "rid" (excluding the "base" and "url" keys) if you know that the ruleset is already registered with the engine.
2) Provide the base and url in their respective parts as described above.
3) Just provide the full url (in the "url" key) where your ruleset is located, leaving the "base" undefined or as an empty string.

Do not provide the "rid" key if you want to retrieve the krl file from a remote repository (just provide the "base" and "url" keys). If you provide the "rid" key at all, this function will assume the ruleset is already registered with the engine and will simply throw an error if it is not found, ignoring the "base" and "url" as if they were not submitted. If the "base" and "url" are provided, then the krl file will be registered to the engine (if not already) and then installed on the pico with the given "pico_id".

engine:installRuleset( ent:id, "wrangler" ) setting(resp)
/*
    "wrangler"
*/

engine:installRuleset( ent:id, ["wrangler","Pds"] ) setting(resp)
/*
    ["wrangler","Pds"]
*/

engine:installRuleset( ent:id, base = <base>, url = <url> ) setting(resp)
/*
    "the.rid.at.that.url"
*/


uninstallRuleset

uninstall a ruleset from a pico.  

ParameterDatatypeRequiredDefault
<pico_id><string>NOthe running pico_id
<rid>string | array

YES


This does not return anything

engine:uninstallRuleset( rid = "myRuleset")


engine:uninstallRuleset( meta:picoId, ["rid.1", "rid.2"])
