Global HTTP options

List of options that affect all HTTP connections.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/http/options
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

Note that this session ID refers to the connection between the REST client and the SPS REST API. It is not related to the sessions that SPS records (and which also have a session ID, but in a different format).

Sample request

The following command lists global HTTP options.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/http/options
Response

The following is a sample response received when listing global HTTP options.

For details of the meta object, see Message format.

Element Type Description
key Top level item Contains the ID of the endpoint.
body Top level item Contains the elements of the global HTTP options.
audit Top level item Contains settings for timestamping and cleanup.
service Top level item Global setting to enable HTTP connections, and specify the logging detail.
enabled boolean Set to true to enable HTTP connections.
log_level int Defines the logging detail of HTTP connections.
Elements of audit Type Description
cleanup Top level item Global retention settings for HTTP connection metadata. To configure retention time for a specific connection policy, use the archive_cleanup_policy element at the endpoint of the policy instead.
channel_database_cleanup_days int

Only if enabled is set to true.

Global retention time for the metadata of HTTP connections, in days. Must exceed the retention time of the archiving policy (or policies) used for HTTP connections, and the connection-specific database cleanup times (if configured).

enabled boolean To enable the global cleanup of HTTP connection metadata, set this element to true.
timestamping Top level item Global timestamping settings for HTTP connections.
selection string

Configures local or remote timestamping.

  • Set local to use SPS for timestamping.

  • Set remote to configure a remote timestamping server.

server_url string

Required for remote timestamping.

The URL of the timestamping server. Note that HTTPS and password-protected connections are not supported.

oid Top level item The Object Identifier of the policy used for timestamping.
enabled boolean

Required for remote timestamping.

Set to true to configure the Object Identifier of the timestamping policy on the timestamping remote server.

policy_oid string

Required if the oid is enabled.

The Object Identifier of the timestamping policy on the remote timestamping server.

signing_interval int Time interval for timestamping open connections, in seconds.
Examples:

Set SPS as the timestamping server:

{
  "audit": {
    "cleanup": {
      "enabled": false
    },
    "timestamping": {
      "selection": "local",
      "signing_interval": 30
    }
  },
  "service": {
    "enabled": true,
    "log_level": 4
  }
}

Enable cleanup, and set it to occur every 10 days:

{
  "audit": {
    "cleanup": {
      "channel_database_cleanup_days": 10,
      "enabled": true
    },
    "timestamping": {
      "selection": "local",
      "signing_interval": 30
    }
  },
  "service": {
    "enabled": true,
    "log_level": 4
  }
}

Change timestamping to a remote server, without specifying a timestamping policy:

{
  "audit": {
    "cleanup": {
      "channel_database_cleanup_days": 10,
      "enabled": true
    },
    "timestamping": {
        "oid": {
          "enabled": false
        },
        "selection": "remote",
        "server_url": "<url-of-timestamping-server>",
        "signing_interval": 30
      }
  },
  "service": {
    "enabled": true,
    "log_level": 4
  }
}

Change timestamping to a remote server, and specify the 1.2.3 timestamping policy:

{
  "audit": {
    "cleanup": {
      "channel_database_cleanup_days": 10,
      "enabled": true
    },
    "timestamping": {
        "oid": {
          "enabled": true,
          "policy_oid": "1.2.3"
        },
        "selection": "remote",
        "server_url": "<url-of-timestamping-server>",
        "signing_interval": 30
      }
  },
  "service": {
    "enabled": true,
    "log_level": 4
  }
}
