Description Usage Arguments Details Value Examples

View source: R/gitlab_api.R

Description

This is gitlabr's core function to talk to Gitlab's server API via HTTP(S). Usually you will not use this function directly too often, but either use gitlabr's convenience wrappers or write your own. See the gitlabr vignette for more information on this.

gitlab(req, api_root, verb = httr::GET, auto_format = TRUE, debug = FALSE,
  gitlab_con = "default", page = "all", enforce_api_root = TRUE,
  argname_verb = if (identical(verb, httr::GET) | identical(verb,
  httr::DELETE)) {     "query" } else {     "body" }, ...)

Arguments

req

vector of characters that represents the call (e.g. c("projects", project_id, "events"))

api_root

URL where the gitlab API to request resides (e.g. https://gitlab.myserver.com/api/v3/)

verb

http verb to use for request in form of one of the httr functions GET, PUT, POST, DELETE

auto_format

whether to format the returned object automatically to a flat data.frame

debug

if TRUE API URL and query will be printed, defaults to FALSE

gitlab_con

function to use for issuing API requests (e.g. as returned by gitlab_connection

page

number of page of API response to get; if "all" (default), all pages are queried successively and combined.

enforce_api_root

if multiple pages are requested, the API root URL is ensured to be the same as in the original call for all calls using the "next page" URL returned by gitlab. This makes sense for security and in cases where gitlab is behind a reverse proxy and ignorant about its URL from external.

argname_verb

name of the argument of the verb that fields and information are passed on to

...

named parameters to pass on to gitlab API (technically: modifies query parameters of request URL), may include private_token and all other parameters as documented for the Gitlab API

Details

Note: currently gitlab API v3 is supported. Support for Gitlab API v4 (for Gitlab version >= 9.0) will be added soon.

Value

the response from the Gitlab API, usually as a 'data_frame' and including all pages
