Portal API

A quick summary of Portal API

The Portal API backend

The portal API backend is written in Java. The design described here is also reflected in the code

The backend API is under /5ginfireportal/services/api/repo/* and /5ginfireportal/services/api/repo/repo/admin/* for authorized requests. For example, since our portal will be under https://portal.5ginfire.eu you can request towards: https://portal.5ginfire.eu/5ginfireportal/services/api/repo/*
The API, Produces("application/json") and Consumes("application/json") except some POSTs that Consume("multipart/form-data") All requests should be to the /repo of the webservice.

The API endpoint is at:
A complete API documentation can be found at:
The API has an OpenAPI [1] specification under:

There are requests that are public. For example, get all Categories:

curl -v  https://portal.5ginfire.eu/5ginfireportal/services/api/repo/categories


    "id": 1,
    "name": "None",
    "appscount": 0,
    "vxFscount": 0,
    "productsCount": 0
    "id": 2,
    "name": "Networking",
    "appscount": 1,
    "vxFscount": 15,
    "productsCount": 16
    "id": 3,
    "name": "Automotive",
    "appscount": 2,
    "vxFscount": 3,
    "productsCount": 5
    "id": 4,
    "name": "Media",
    "appscount": 0,
    "vxFscount": 6,
    "productsCount": 6

next are ways to get authorized requests. You need to have an account in the 5GinFIRE portal

Authorization via X-APIKEY Header

You can get your APIKEY by the portal:

Here is an authorized request with X-APIKEY example:

curl -v -H "X-APIKEY:ec6a5be8-66bf-4351-e830-"  https://portal.5ginfire.eu/5ginfireportal/services/api/repo/admin/vxfs

X-APIKEY is generated when you create an account.

Here is an authorized request with cookie example:

curl -v -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST --data '{"username":"admin", "password":"changeme"}' https://portal.5ginfire.eu/5ginfireportal/services/api/repo/sessions

example response :

    "username": "admin",
    "password": "",
    "portalUser": {
        "id": 1,
        "organization": "5GinFIRE",
        "name": "Portal Administrator",
        "email": "auser@example.com",
        "username": "admin",
        "password": "",
        "active": true,
        "currentSessionID": "5ec34075-1a12-46d8-97ec-b9e1ab064666",
        "roles": [

In the following requests JSESSIONID cookie value is equal to the currentSessionID (and JSESSIONID given from server).
Must be present for authenticated requests
