Create and Update Profiles using REST (deprecated api)

This API is deprecated, use /jemh/1.0/public/ instead. See for more information.


You may want to hard commit your JEMH Profiles into source control, maybe you want to replicate configuration over multiple instances...

How it works

JEMH has supported a Profile export/ import in XML format forever.  Recently we enabled Profile update through the Customer Acceptance Testing feature, but it wasn't possible to use REST, but we've now added some rest endpoints to allow the standard JEMH XML files to be uploaded and even updated.






Deploying a new Profile

Is as easy as:

curl -v -X POST -F "profileXml=@profile.xml" --user admin:admin http://localhost:8080/rest/jemh/1.0/api/profile/create

Updating an existing Profile

The Profile XML contains a <profileId> element, we use that on upload to locate an existing profile, and if its found, we update ALL profile fields. 

 During update, all 'top level' configuration fields are just overwritten, the lower level object graphs (eg Project Mappings) are deleted and rebuilt, so, one should probably not do this on a busy live system.

curl -v -X POST -F "profileXml=@profile.xml" --user admin:admin http://localhost:8080/rest/jemh/1.0/api/profile/update
