Full Description

concordances-rw-dynamodb

Introduction

The concordance-rw-dynamodb service is responsible for taking a normalised concordance object and storing it into DynamoDB.
A concordance is linking one primary concept identifier to another concept identifier.

Installation

Download the source code, dependencies and test dependencies:

    go get -u github.com/kardianos/govendor
    go get -u github.com/Financial-Times/concordances-rw-dynamodb
    cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/Financial-Times/concordances-rw-dynamodb
    govendor sync
    go build .

Running locally

  1. Run the tests and install the binary:

     govendor sync
     govendor test -v -race
     go install
    
  2. Run the binary (using the help flag to see the available optional arguments):

     $GOPATH/bin/concordances-rw-dynamodb [--help]  
    

Options:

    --app-system-code="concordances-rw-dynamodb"            System Code of the application ($APP_SYSTEM_CODE)
    --app-name="Concordances RW DynamoDB"                   Application name ($APP_NAME)
    --port="8080"                                           Port to listen on ($APP_PORT)
    --awsRegion="eu-west-1"                                 AWS region of DynamoDB
    --dynamoDbTableName="upp-concordance-store-[env]"       Name of DynamoDB Table
    --snsTopicArn="arn:aws:sns:eu-west-1:..."               SNS Topic to notify about concordances events
    --logLeve="info"                                        Level of logging to be shown

Note that at this time DynamoDB and SNS topic are in the same AWS Region.

Test locally

Tests in dynamodb package rely on running instance of DynamoDB installed locally.
Install Local DynamoDB following instructions here
Start DynamoDB
java -Djava.library.path=./DynamoDBLocal_lib -jar DynamoDBLocal.jar -sharedDb -inMemory

export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=any_secret_key
export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=any_access_id

go test ./dynamodb/

API

  • Based on the following google doc
  • See the /api/api.yml for the swagger definitions of the endpoints below.

Utility endpoints

GET

summary: Retrieves concordances record for a given UUID of a concept.
description: Given UUID of a concept as path parameter responds with concordances record for that concept in json format
request:

 curl -X GET "https://user:pass@pub-prod-up.ft.com/__concordances-rw-dynamodb/concordances/4f50b156-6c50-4693-b835-02f70d3f3bc0" -H  "accept: application/json; charset=UTF-8"

response:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

}

PUT

summary: Stores the concordances record for a given UUID of a concept.
description: Expects body in json format. Expects uuid path parameter and uuid json property in the body to match. The UUID in the URL should be the primary object, if the distinction exists (eg. where the two objects are of the same type).

request:

curl -X PUT "https://user:pass@pub-prod-up.ft.com/__concordances-rw-dynamodb/concordances/4f50b156-6c50-4693-b835-02f70d3f3bc0" -H  "accept: application/json" -H  
"content-type: application/json; charset=utf-8" -d 
"{  
    "uuid": "4f50b156-6c50-4693-b835-02f70d3f3bc0",  
    "concordedIds": [
       "7c4b3931-361f-4ea4-b694-75d1630d7746 ",
       "1e5c86f8-3f38-4b6b-97ce-f75489ac3113",
       "0e5033fe-d079-485c-a6a1-8158ad4f37ce"
         ]
 }"

DELETE

summary: Deletes the concordances record for a given UUID of a concept.
description: Given UUID of a concept as path parameter deletes the concordances record for that concept.

request:

curl -X DELETE "https://user:pass@pub-prod-up.ft.com/__concordances-rw-dynamodb/concordances/4f50b156-6c50-4693-b835-02f70d3f3bc0" -H  "accept: application/json"

Admin endpoints

/__gtg

/__health

/__build-info

There are several checks performed:

  • Checks that DynamoDB table is accessible, using parameters supplied on service startup.
    • Checks that SNS topic is accessible, using parameters supplied on service startup.

See the api/api.yml for the swagger definitions of these endpoints

Logging

  • The application uses logrus; the log file is initialised in main.go.
  • Logging requires an env app parameter, for all environments other than local logs are written to file.
  • When running locally, logs are written to console. If you want to log locally to file, you need to pass in an env parameter that is != local.
  • NOTE: /__build-info and /__gtg endpoints are not logged as they are called every second from varnish/vulcand and this information is not needed in logs/splunk.
