⚠️ This client is deprecated ⚠️

As of Enterprise Search version 7.10.0, we are directing users to the new Enterprise Search Ruby Client and deprecating this client.

This client will be compatible with all Enterprise Search 7.x releases, but will not be compatible with 8.x releases. Our development effort on this project will be limited to bug fixes. All future enhancements will be focused on the Enterprise Search Ruby Client.

Thank you! - Elastic

Getting started 🐣

To install the gem, execute:

gem install elastic-workplace-search

Or place gem 'elastic-workplace-search', '~> 0.4.1 in your Gemfile and run bundle install.

Usage

In your Elastic Workplace Search dashboard navigate to Sources/Add a Shared Content Source/Custom API Source to create a new source. Name your source (e.g. Workplace Search Ruby Client) and once it's created you'll get an access token and a key. You'll need these in the following steps.

Create a new instance of the Elastic Workplace Search client with your access token:

Elastic::WorkplaceSearch.access_token = '' # your access token
client = Elastic::WorkplaceSearch::Client.new

Change API endpoint

client = Elastic::WorkplaceSearch::Client.new
Elastic::WorkplaceSearch.endpoint = 'https://your-server.example.com/api/ws/v1'

Specifying an HTTP Proxy

client = Elastic::WorkplaceSearch::Client.new(proxy: 'http://localhost:8888')

Documents

Indexing Documents

This example shows how to use the index_documents method:

content_source_key = '' # your content source key
documents = [
  {
    'id' => 'INscMGmhmX4',
    'url' => 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1uyQZNg2vE',
    'title' => 'The Original Grumpy Cat',
    'body' => 'this is a test'
  },
  {
    'id' => 'JNDFojsd02',
    'url' => 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsdfhk2j',
    'title' => 'Another Grumpy Cat',
    'body' => 'this is also a test'
  }
]

begin
  document_receipts = client.index_documents(content_source_key, documents)
  # handle results
rescue Elastic::WorkplaceSearch::ClientException => e
  # handle error
end

Destroying Documents

content_source_key = '' # your content source key
document_ids = ['INscMGmhmX4', 'JNDFojsd02']

begin
  destroy_document_results = client.destroy_documents(content_source_key, document_ids)
  # handle destroy document results
rescue Elastic::WorkplaceSearch::ClientException => e
  # handle error
end

Permissions

Listing all permissions

content_source_key = '' # your content source key

client.list_all_permissions(content_source_key)

Listing all permissions with paging

content_source_key = '' # your content source key

client.list_all_permissions(content_source_key, current: 2, size: 20)

Retrieve a User's permissions

content_source_key = '' # your content source key
user = 'enterprise_search'

client.get_user_permissions(content_source_key, user)

Add permissions to a User

content_source_key = '' # your content source key
user = 'enterprise_search'
permissions = ['permission1']

client.add_user_permissions(content_source_key, user, permissions: permissions)

Update a User's permissions

content_source_key = '' # your content source key
user = 'enterprise_search'
permissions = ['permission2']

client.update_user_permissions(content_source_key, user, permissions: permissions)

Remove permissions from a User

content_source_key = '' # your content source key
user = 'enterprise_search'
permissions = ['permission2']

client.remove_user_permissions(content_source_key, user, permissions: permissions)

Running tests

Run tests via rspec:

$ ENDPOINT=http://localhost:3002/api/ws/v1 bundle exec rspec
