Mock API Usage

If you installed this NPM package globally then you can run it anywhere on the command line by running mockapi

(By default it runs on port 3004). If you want to change ports or view available CLI options , run mockapi -h

If you want to include this node module in your project install it as you would any other dependency like yarn add @manageiq/manageiq-api-mock

If you want to start Mock API from your package.json "scripts" section. Here is a snippet that makes that possible

"scripts": {
     "start:mock-api": "cd node_modules/manageiq-api-mock/ && node index.js"

Then when in your projects directory you can then start mock api by running yarn start:mock-api or npm start:mock-api


If you would like to get this to run on a different port , please set the following environmental variable export MOCK_API_HOST=localhost:3005 or whatever port you would like.

If you would like to debug incoming http requests please set the following environmental variable export LOG_LEVEL=debug

How to add data and RESTful endpoint data

If you look at the root of the project you will see a folder named data that contains subfolders that have .json files.
If you want to add a new restful endpoint or edit an existing endpoint create a file with the following naming conventionunique_filename.json

  • Please note that the folders under data are just to help organize files and do not have to match the endpoint the files underneath are for.

Below you will see a sample of what one of the files looks like


Key Elements in configuration

  • url - At the high level of the json object an endpoint is the restful endpoint you are defining. So in this example "blueprints" would actually be for the url http://localhost:3000/api/blueprints.
  • get - This is a object with the data you would like the server to respond with
  • put - This is a object with the data you would like the server to respond with
  • post - This is a object with the data you would like the server to respond with
  • delete - This is a object with the data you would like the server to respond with

Handling querystrings and subpaths

Sometimes you will have urls with querystrings you need to handle like http://localhost:3000/api/blueprints?test=123

You also might end up with urls with subpaths like http://localhost:3000/api/blueprints/test/path/

The Mock API handles defining both of these scenarios the same way.
For example querystrings


or subpaths


Overriding stock endpoints with local changes

If you would like to override any of the endpoints in the repo please drop the overriden files into the /local directory structure. This will pick up and override files that match from stock data.
