» Agent HTTP API

The /agent endpoints are used to interact with the local Nomad agent.

» List Members

This endpoint queries the agent for the known peers in the gossip pool. This endpoint is only applicable to servers. Due to the nature of gossip, this is eventually consistent.

Method Path Produces
GET /agent/members application/json

The table below shows this endpoint's support for blocking queries and required ACLs.

» List Servers

This endpoint lists the known server nodes. The servers endpoint is used to query an agent in client mode for its list of known servers. Client nodes register themselves with these server addresses so that they may dequeue work. The servers endpoint can be used to keep this configuration up to date if there are changes in the cluster.

Method Path Produces
GET /agent/servers application/json

The table below shows this endpoint's support for blocking queries and required ACLs.

Blocking Queries ACL Required
NO agent:read

» Sample Request

$ curl \
    https://nomad.rocks/v1/agent/servers

» Sample Response

[
  "127.0.0.1:4647"
]

» Update Servers

This endpoint updates the list of known servers to the provided list. This replaces all previous server addresses with the new list.

Method Path Produces
POST /agent/servers (empty body)

The table below shows this endpoint's support for blocking queries and required ACLs.

Blocking Queries ACL Required
NO agent:write

» Parameters

  • address (string: <required>) - Specifies the list of addresses in the format ip:port. This is specified as a query string!

» Join Agent

This endpoint introduces a new member to the gossip pool. This endpoint is only eligible for servers.

Method Path Produces
POST /agent/join application/json

The table below shows this endpoint's support for blocking queries and required ACLs.

Blocking Queries ACL Required
NO none

» Parameters

  • address (string: <required>) - Specifies the address to join in the ip:port format. This is provided as a query parameter and may be specified multiple times to join multiple servers.

» Sample Request

$ curl \
    --request POST \
    https://nomad.rocks/v1/agent/join?address=1.2.3.4&address=5.6.7.8

» Sample Response

{
  "error": "",
  "num_joined": 2
}

» Force Leave Agent

This endpoint forces a member of the gossip pool from the "failed" state to the "left" state. This allows the consensus protocol to remove the peer and stop attempting replication. This is only applicable for servers.

Method Path Produces
POST /agent/force-leave application/json

The table below shows this endpoint's support for blocking queries and required ACLs.

Blocking Queries ACL Required
NO agent:write

» Parameters

  • node (string: <required>) - Specifies the name of the node to force leave.

» Sample Request

$ curl \
    --request POST \
    https://nomad.rocks/v1/agent/force-leave?node=client-ab2e23dc

» Health

This endpoint returns whether or not the agent is healthy. When using Consul it is the endpoint Nomad will register for its own health checks.

When the agent is unhealthy 500 will be returned along with JSON response containing an error message.
