Sensu Settings API

Reference documentation

The /settings API endpoint

/settings (GET)

The /settings API provides HTTP GET access to the APIs running configuration settings. Sensitive setting values are redacted by default, unless the URL query parameter redacted is set to false, e.g. /settings?redacted=false.

EXAMPLE

The following example demonstrates a request to the /settings API, resulting in a JSON Hash containing the APIs running configuration settings.

$ curl -s http://127.0.0.1:4567/settings | jq .
{
  "api": {
    "cors": {
      "Headers": "Origin, X-Requested-With, Content-Type, Accept, Authorization",
      "Credentials": "true",
      "Methods": "GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, OPTIONS",
      "Origin": "*"
    },
    "password": "REDACTED",
    "user": "admin"
  },
  "checks": {
    "...": "..."
  },
  "...": "..."
}
