Use the Cloud API

On this page Carat arrow pointing down

The Cloud API is a REST interface that allows you programmatic access to manage the lifecycle of clusters within your organization.

API reference

Refer to the full API reference documentation for detailed descriptions of the API endpoints and options.

Call the API

The API uses bearer token authentication, and each request requires a secret key. The secret key is associated with a service account, and inherits the permissions of the account.

To send the secret key when making an API call, add the secret key to the Authorization HTTP header sent with the request.

icon/buttons/copy
curl --request GET \
  --url 'https://cockroachlabs.cloud/api/v1/clusters' \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer {secret_key}'
icon/buttons/copy
Authorization: Bearer {secret_key}

Where {secret_key} is the secret key string you stored when you created the API key in the Console.

Set the API version

The Cc-Version HTTP header specifies the version of the Cloud API to use. If you omit the Cc-Version header, the Cloud API will default to version 2022-03-31 (the initial release of the Cloud API). The Cloud API uses date-based versions of the form YYYY-MM-DD, in ISO 8601 format.

If you set an invalid version, you will get an HTTP 400 response with the message "invalid Cc-Version."

icon/buttons/copy
curl --request GET \
  --url 'https://cockroachlabs.cloud/api/v1/clusters' \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer {secret_key}' \
  --header 'Cc-Version: {version}'
icon/buttons/copy
Authorization: Bearer {secret_key}
Cc-Version: {version}

Where {secret_key} is the secret key string you stored when you created the API key in the Console and {version} is the version of the Cloud API.

Create a new cluster

To create a cluster, send a POST request to the /v1/clusters endpoint. The service account associated with the secret key must have ADMIN or CREATE permission to create new clusters.

icon/buttons/copy
curl --request POST \
  --url https://cockroachlabs.cloud/api/v1/clusters \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer {secret_key}' \
  --data '{"name":"{cluster_name}","provider":"{cloud_provider}","spec":{"serverless":{"regions":["{region_name}"],"spendLimit":{spend_limit}}}}'
icon/buttons/copy
{
  "name": "{cluster_name}",
  "provider": "{cloud_provider}",
  "spec": {
    "serverless": {
      "regions": [
        "{region_name}"
      ],
      "spendLimit": {spend_limit}
    }
  }
}

Where:

  • {cluster_name} is the name of the cluster. This should be a short string with no whitespace.
  • {cloud_provider} is the name of the cloud infrastructure provider on which you want your cluster to run. Possible values are: GCP and AWS.
  • {region_name} is the zone code of the cloud infrastructure provider. For example, on GCP you can set the "us-west2" zone code.
  • {spend_limit} is the maximum amount of money, in US cents, you want to spend per month on this cluster.

For example, to create a new free Serverless cluster named "notorious-moose" using the default values for the cloud infrastructure provider and region:

icon/buttons/copy
curl --request POST \
  --url https://cockroachlabs.cloud/api/v1/clusters \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer {secret_key}' \
  --data '{"name":"notorious-moose","provider":"GCP","spec":{"serverless":{"regions":["us-central1"],"spendLimit":0}}}'
icon/buttons/copy
{
  "name": "notorious-moose",
  "provider": "GCP",
  "spec": {
    "serverless": {
      "regions": [
        "us-central1"
      ],
      "spendLimit": 0
    }
  }
}

If the request was successful, the API will return information about the newly created cluster.

icon/buttons/copy

  "cloud_provider": "{cloud_provider}",
  "created_at": "2022-03-14T14:15:22Z",

Delete a cluster

To delete a cluster, send a DELETE request to the /v1/clusters/{cluster_id} endpoint. The service account associated with the secret key must have ADMIN or DELETE permission to delete an organization's clusters.

Deleting a cluster will permanently delete the cluster and all the data within the cluster.

Export Cloud Organization audit logs

Note:

This feature is in preview and is only available to enrolled organizations. To enroll your organization in the preview, contact your Cockroach Labs account team. This feature is subject to change.

To export audit logs for activities and events related to your Cloud organization, send a GET request to the /v1/auditlogevents endpoint. The service account associated with the secret key must have ADMIN permission.

icon/buttons/copy
curl --request GET \
  --url 'https://cockroachlabs.cloud/api/v1/auditlogevents?starting_from={timestamp}&sort_order={sort_order}&limit={limit}' \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer {secret_key}' \
  --header 'Cc-Version: {api_version}'

Where:

  • {timestamp} is an RFC3339 timestamp that indicates the first log entry to fetch. If unspecified, defaults to the time when the Cloud organization was created if {sort_order} is ASC, or the current time if {sort_order} is DESC.
  • {sort_order} is either ASC (the default) or DESC.
  • {limit} indicates roughly how many entries to return. If any entries would be returned for a timestamp, all entries for that timestamp are always returned. Defaults to 200.
  • {api_version} is the Cloud API version.

A request that includes no parameters exports roughly 200 entries in ascending order, starting from when your CockroachDB Cloud organization was created.

If the request was successful, the client will receive a JSON array consisting of a list of log entries and, depending on the circumstances, a next_starting_from field.

  • If {sort_order} is ASC, next_starting_from is always returned.
  • If {sort_order} is DESC, then next_starting_from is returned as long as earlier audit logs are available. It is not returned when the earliest log entry is reached (when the CockroachDB Cloud organization was created).
icon/buttons/copy
{
  "entries": [
    "{entry_array}"
  ],
  "next_starting_from": "{timestamp}"
}

  • {entry_array} is a structured JSON array of audit log entries.
  • {timestamp} indicates the timestamp to send to export the next batch of results.

  --header 'Authorization: Bearer {secret_key}'

To return both active clusters and clusters that have been deleted or failed to initialize, send the show_inactive=true query parameter.

icon/buttons/copy
curl --request GET \
  --url 'https://cockroachlabs.cloud/api/v1/clusters?show_inactive=true' \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer {secret_key}'
