Deployment API - Inspect Package

Overview

This endpoint runs an inspection on a package. Appian will return any deployment errors or warnings for a given package and import customization file.

  • HTTP Request Method: POST
  • Endpoint: /inspections

Request

When performing a POST request, you must define a request body using the multipart/form-data content type. Form data allows you to send key-value pairs and upload files, such as your package.

Each POST request’s body must include a JSON object (application/json content type) and form parameters (uploaded files). The JSON object is a list of key-value pairs, as listed below.

JSON object parameters

  • packageFileName - File name of the deployment package (.zip).
  • customizationFileName - File name of the import customization file (.properties).

Request example

In addition to the JSON object below, the request should have the referenced files attached.

Request

POST /inspections

}

cURL example

If you’re calling the API from a command line interface, you can use cURL to make a request. The cURL command with the above JSON object and its corresponding files looks like:

curl --location --request
POST 'https://mysite.appiancloud.com/suite/deployment-management/v1/inspections' \
--header 'Appian-API-Key: <API key>' \
--form 'json="{
      \"packageFileName\": \"Fraud Investigation Management.zip\",
      \"customizationFileName\": \"Fraud Investigation Management.properties\"
   }"' \
--form 'zipFile=@"Fraud Investigation Management.zip"' \
--form 'ICF=@"Fraud Investigation Management.properties"'

Each form parameter requires a key name, as indicated by randomKey1, but these can be arbitrarily named and do not need to match anything in the JSON object.

  • uuid - UUID of the inspection. This can be used to retrieve details of the inspection.
