ExternalApiV2 Resource

A restful API to external methods of Ethersource. Returned data is encoded as json objects. The default endpoint to use is https://ethersource.gavagai.se/ethersource/rest/v2/. So to use getValue you should use https://ethersource.gavagai.se/ethersource/rest/v2/getValue For most of these externalApi methods, you need to have a list of your customerObserverViews. To get these, use the method listAllCustomerObserverViews

The API requires HTTP Basic Authentication, thus you need a username and a password to access the API. You will get this from a Gavagai operator.

Most API methods also require you to pass in an API key. You will get this as well from a Gavagai operator.

Version history:

v8 added several TopicTracker Methods to the api, only applicable to a TopicTrackerUser.

v7 added getValues(to get the Polarization Values for a CustomerObserver over a given Range), getMostRecentValues(to get the recent Polarization Values), getComparisonValues(to get the most recent values for a set of customerObserverViews, to compare them) to the api.

v6 added findAssociations to the api

v5 added findDocumentURIs to the api

v4 getTriggerMarker changed its matching algorithm slightly: now it matches a triggermarker within the given day or hour (or whatever resolution is set) regardless of the values of the smaller time fields, and not, as previously, the closest triggerMarker.

v3 trigger marker methods now reference a sensorSubscriptionId instead of a sensorId

v2 changed path in example call

v1 first version of api with getValue

Changes to Ethersource Api:

We have upgraded our api from Version 1 to Version 2. These are the changes that go along with this upgrade:

End Point: https://ethersource.gavagai.se/ethersource/rest/v2/
Documentation: https://ethersource.gavagai.se/ethersource/v2/apis/

1) For all the method calls, the outer wrapper that was returned with the JSON has been removed
2) The names of the fields as returned by the json have been modified
3) Values that were null, before were not output. They will now be output, with a NULL value
4) Arrays that had only one element, before we output as a single object. If the array was empty, the field was skipped. Now, irrespective of whether the array is empty/single object/multiple objects, the arrays are output as arrays
5) Before, Float values without a decimal value were output as Ints, they will now be output as floats with a ‘.0’
6)The order of the fields within the JSON have been changed
7) Method getValuesMultiple now takes a minimum of 2 customerObserverViewIds as a parameter. If 1 customerObserverViewId only is passed, an error is thrown

GET /findAssociations

Get associations for a CustomerObserver and a given date. The associations are terms which have co-occured with the terms of the CustomerObserver during the last 'windowSize' hours period that starts with the timestamp. The returned associations are grouped into topics. Each topic contains a list of associations that are similar to each other, and their associative strength. If a topic contains more than one member, all except one association contain a forWord, which point to the word that they are related to in the topic. The topic leader(associations which the topic is based on) contains no forWord.The topic name of each topic reflects the association which has the maximum strength from its topic members( the topic name reflects the Topic Leader)

Sample call:

  https://ethersource.gavagai.se/ethersource/rest/v2/findAssociations?apiKey=apiKey123&customerObserverId=1&timestamp =2013-08-08%2000:00:00%20CEST&maxResults=30&backlogInDays=300&windowSize=1&userId=sampleUser

GET /findAssociationsForWordsGeneric

For a specified set of target terms, this method returns teh words associated to those terms, along with the strength of association to each of these terms. These associations are calculated in real-time, for the day that the timestamp parameter specifies. The terms for which you would like the associations for must be specified, along with the language in which you would like the associations.If the user required simple merging, the individual associations for each of these terms are not returned, only the merged list it. If the user does not require simple merging, the associations for each of these terms is returned, along with three lists of merges associations, each list using a different algorithm for merging these associations. Example call:

GET /findDocumentDomains

Get Domains to the documents associated to a given CustomerObserverViewId and timestamp.

Once a point in time has been deemed interesting, either because of the raw signal associated with it (obtained with the getValue method), or because of the particular advice associated with it (obtained with the getTriggerMarkerMessage or getLatestTriggerMarkerMessage method), this method may be used to retrieve the Domains to the documents contributing to the signal/message at that particular time.

Request Parameters
name type description constraints multivalued
customerObserverViewId query The id of the customerObserverView. You will get this from a Gavagai operator. int no
pageSize query The maximal number of Domain URIs to get in a single call. This is an optional parameter. The default value is set to 500. int no
sortBy query This is an optional parameter. There are four sortable fields associated with a Domain URI: "value", "freq", "alphabetical"(without the quotation marks). Setting sortBy to "value" means that the Domain URIs are sorted according to the sum of all the polarization scores that their complete URIs contribute in descending order."alphabetical" sorts the URIs alphabetically. "freq" sorts the DomainsURIs according to the number of times pages from this domain have contributed to the pole/customerObserver.. The default value of sortBy is "freq", followed by a sub-sort by "value" Multiple sortBy arguments may be supplied in the same invocation.

Example. The call:

            https://ethersource.gavagai.se/ethersource/rest/v2/
            findDocumentDomains
            ?apiKey=yourKey&customerObserverViewId=1&timestamp=2011
            -09-01%2001:01:00%20CEST&pageSize=100&sortBy
            =freq&sortBy=value
 

fetches the first 100 Domain URIs and returns them sorted according to the sum of the scores (highest scores first). The sort order within groups of URIs that have been assigned the same score is such that those with the highest frequency occur first.

  yes
startIndex query The index at which to start obtaining Domain URLs. This is an optional parameter. The default value is 0, which means that the URIs fetched will be from the start of the list (determined by the sortBy parameter). If you wish to skip, e.g., the first ten URIs in the list, startIndex should be set to 9. int no
timestamp query A timestamp in the format 'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss z', for example, '2011-03-12 23:00:00 CEST', for the time point of interest. The Domain URIs returned by this method are fetched from the time span decided by the timestamp and the resolution of the Customer Observer specified by the cusotmerObserverViewId. For instance, if the resolution is DAY, and the specified timestamp is as above, the URIs fetched will be from within the span 2011-03-12 00:00:00 CEST to 2011-03-12 23:59:59 CEST.   no
Response Body
media type data type description
application/json;charset="UTF-8" (custom) A json object containing the configuration setting of the CustomerObserverView (the id, resolution, and windowSize, customerObserver and Curve id and names) as well as list of document Domains with information regarding each found Domain's URI, sum polarization score, frequency, the id of the pole from which the polarization score is calculated, as well as the total number of URIs returned.

GET /findDocumentURIs

Get URIs to the documents associated to a given CustomerObserverViewId and timestamp.

Once a point in time has been deemed interesting, either because of the raw signal associated with it (obtained with the getValue method), or because of the particular advice associated with it (obtained with the getTriggerMarkerMessage or getLatestTriggerMarkerMessage method), this method may be used to retrieve the URIs to the documents contributing to the signal/message at that particular time.

Request Parameters
name type description constraints multivalued
customerObserverViewId query The id of the customerObserverView. You will get this from a Gavagai operator. int no
pageSize query The maximal number of URIs to get in a single call. This is an optional parameter. The default value is set to 500. int no
sortBy query This is an optional paramter. There are four sortable fields associated with a URI: "value", "date", "alphabetical", "pole" (without the quotation marks). Setting sortBy to "value" means that the URIs are sorted according to their polarization score in descending order. "date" sorts the URIs according to the time of processing, with the most recent URIs first in the list. "alphabetical" sorts the URIs alphapetically. "pole" sorts the URIs according to the attitudinal pole giving rise the score assigned to the URI. The default value of sortBy is "value". Multiple sortBy arguments may be supplied in the same invokation.

Example. The call:

            https://ethersource.gavagai.se/ethersource/rest/v2/
            findDocumentURIs?apiKey=yourKey&customerObserverViewId=1
            &timestamp=2011-09-01 01:01:00
            CEST&pageSize=100&sortBy=value&sortBy=date
 

fetches the first 100 URIs and returns them sorted according to their scores (highest scores first). The sort order within groups of URIs that have been assigned the same score is such that recently processed URIs occur first.

  yes
startIndex query The index at which to start obtaining URLs. This is an optional parameter. The default value is 0, which means that the URIs fetched will be from the start of the list (determined by the sortBy parameter). If you wish to skip, e.g., the first ten URIs in the list, startIndex should be set to 9. int no
timestamp query A timestamp in the format 'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss z', for example, '2011-03-12 23:00:00 CEST', for the time point of interest. The URIs returned by this method are fetched from the time span decided by the timestamp and the resolution of the Customer Observer specified by the cusotmerObserverViewId. For instance, if the resolution is DAY, and the specified timestamp is as above, the URIs fetched will be from within the span 2011-03-12 00:00:00 CEST to 2011-03-12 23:59:59 CEST.   no

GET /getTriggerMarkerMessage

Get the advice string (the message) for certain sensor subscription at a certain time.

In Ethersource the raw data (that may be retrieved by getValue) can be analyzed and presented as a recommendation or advice after being processed by the Ethersource evaluation algorithms. This may be a more easily accessible means to realize the potential of Ethersource signals. The contents of the message depend on the evaluation algorithm that is connected to the sensor subscription, you will have to get this format documentation independently of the current documentation.

The calling client must authenticate using a valid user and password with HTTP Basic authentication and must provide a valid apiKey which is owned by the authenticating user. The user must also own the sensor subscription. The method will retrieve a triggerMarker that matches the given timestamp and the resolution of the sensor. For example, given a timestamp of 2011-12-14 13:23:00 CES and a DAY resolution, the method will try to find a triggerMarker on the 14th of December. If the resolution is HOUR, the match would be made for hour 13 on the 14th of December. If the timestamp is too far away from any TriggerMarker the method will return nothing.

Example:

     /ethersource/rest/v2/getTriggerMarkerMessage?apiKey=abc&sensorSubscriptionId=1&timestamp=2011-09-12 12:00:00 CEST
 

Request Parameters
name type description constraints
sensorSubscriptionId query is of a sensorSubscription owned by the authenticating user int
timestamp query a timestamp for which we want the matching TriggerMarker message  
Response Body
media type data type description
application/json;charset="UTF-8" (custom) the message of the triggermarker which is closest to the given timestamp within a period given by a starting time which is one sensor subscription resolution before and the end time which is one sensor subscription resolution after the timestamp respectively

GET /getValue

Get raw Ethersource data for a certain CustomerObserverViewId and timestamp.

In Ethersource, a CustomerObserver monitors the calculations of a signal for a specific customer and for a certain subject, for example a signal concerning a subject such as 'Obama', as incoming data is processed from many different sources. The processed signal can be viewed in different resolutions (i.e. the rate at which the signal is calculated, this could be hourly, daily, etc) and each view of the signal is represented by a CustomerObserverView. The configuration of a CustomerObserver and its accompanying CustomerObserverViews is done by an administrator in Ethersource.

This method will allow a customer to retrieve a certain value for a CustomerObserverView. Since the resolution of the signal is given by the configuration on the server, the api only requires the id of the CustomerObserverView and a timestamp to be able to retrieve a correct value. The client must, however, know in advance the resolution of a given CustomerObserverView. This information is provided by an administrator, and it is also returned, along with the retrieved value itself, in each call to this method.

The values provided by this method are closing values. This means that a value for a certain period of time is calculated during the period and is not available until all underlying data for the period has been taken into account at the end of the period. For example, if the resolution of the view is 24 hours there will be at most one value per 24 hour period and each value will be calculated at the end of each 24 hour period. If a 24 hour period starts at 08:00 on June 2nd, 2011, the value for '2011-06-02 08:00' will be available at just after 08:00 on 3rd of June. If you try to retrieve a value before it has been calculated this method will return an error.

To retrieve any value you should call this method with the timestamp corresponding to the point in time for which you would like to retrieve a signal value. The calculated value, given the configured resolution, will be returned. If you do not know the resolution of a CustomerObserverView you can find it in the returned data after each call as it will always return the configuration information along with any value.

Example call:

 https://ethersource.gavagai.se/ethersource/rest/v2/getValue?apiKey=123&
 amp; customerObserverViewId=2& timestamp=2011-03-12 23:12:00 CEST
 

(if you try this in a browser you may have to url-escape the timestamp parameter -- try putting a plus instead of space)

Request Parameters
name type description constraints
customerObserverViewId query The id of the customerObserverView. You will get this from a Gavagai operator. int
timestamp query A timestamp in the format 'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss z', for example, '2011-03-12 23:00:00 CEST', for the value of interest.  
Response Body
media type data type description
application/json;charset="UTF-8" (custom) A json object containing the configuration settings of the CustomerObserverView

GET /getValues

Given two different timestamps, get all possible aggregated values from Ethersource data for a specified resolution between those two time stamps for a certain CustomerObserverViewId.

In Ethersource, a CustomerObserver monitors the calculations of a signal for a specific customer and for a certain subject, for example a signal concerning a subject such as 'Obama', as incoming data is processed from many different sources. The processed signal can be viewed in different resolutions (i.e. the rate at which the signal is calculated, this could be hourly, daily, etc) and each view of the signal is represented by a CustomerObserverView. The configuration of a CustomerObserver and its accompanying CustomerObserverViews is done by an administrator in Ethersource.

This method will allow a customer to retrieve a set of values for a CustomerObserverView, within the specified time range.Since the resolution of the signal is given by the configuration on the server, the api only requires the id of the CustomerObserverView and the timestamps between which the data is required to be able to retrieve a correct values. The client must, however, know in advance the resolution of a given CustomerObserverView. This information is provided by an administrator,and it is also returned, along with the retrieved values themselves,in each call to this method.

The specified time range is broken down into smaller periods of time, based on the resolution, and each of these periods corresponds to a return value. The values provided by this method are closing values. This means for each of the values which are returned, within that time range, the value for a certain period of time is calculated during the period and is not available until all underlying data for the period has been taken into account at the end of the period. For example, if the resolution of the view is 24 hours there will be at most one value per 24 hour period and each value will be calculated at the end of each 24 hour period. If a 24 hour period starts at 08:00 on June 2nd, 2011, the value for '2011-06-02 08:00' will be available at just after 08:00 on 3rd of June. If you try to retrieve values before they have been calculated this method will return an error.

To retrieve a set of values you should call this method with the timestamps corresponding to the range in time for which you would like to retrieve the signal values. The calculated values, given the configured resolution, will be returned. If you do not know the resolution of a CustomerObserverView you can find it in the returned data after each call as it will always return the configuration information along with any value.

Example call:

 https://ethersource.gavagai.se/ethersource/rest/v2/getValues?apiKey=123&
 amp; customerObserverViewId=2&timestampBegin=2011-03-10 23:12:00
 CEST&timestampEnd=2011-03-12 23:12:00 CEST
 

(if you try this in a browser you may have to url-escape the timestamp parameters -- try putting a plus instead of space)

If, in the timerange, at least one of the timestamps has data,instead of throwing an exception, the timestamps not having data are omitted. On the other hand, if none of the timestamps have any data associated with them, a NO_DATA exception is thrown.

For this method call, there is a MINUTES_DELAY of 15 minutes, meaning that the client must wait 15 minutes after the timestamp has passed, to retrieve a value for that timestamp.

Request Parameters
name type description constraints
customerObserverViewId query The id of the customerObserverView. You will get this from a Gavagai operator. int
timestampBegin query A timestamp in the format 'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss z', for example, '2011-03-12 23:00:00 CEST', which would be the time from which you want values for.  
timestampEnd query A timestamp in the format 'yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss z', for example, '2011-03-12 23:00:00 CEST', which would be the timestamp until which you want vales for.  
Response Body
media type data type description
application/json;charset="UTF-8" (custom) A json object containing the configuration settings of the CustomerObserverView (the id, name, resolution, and window size (number of units of the given resolution), customerObserver and Curve id and names), and the values corresponding to each corresponding timestamp within the time stamp range as a floating number,along with the number of values returned.

GET /getValuesMultiple

Given two different timestamps, get all possible aggregated values from Ethersource data for a specified resolution between those two time stamps for a specified set of customerObserverViewIds.

In Ethersource, a CustomerObserver monitors the calculations of a signal for a specific customer and for a certain subject, for example a signal concerning a subject such as 'Obama', as incoming data is processed from many different sources. The processed signal can be viewed in different resolutions (i.e. the rate at which the signal is calculated, this could be hourly, daily, etc) and each view of the signal is represented by a CustomerObserverView. The configuration of a CustomerObserver and its accompanying CustomerObserverViews is done by an administrator in Ethersource.

This method will allow a customer to retrieve a set set of values, for each of the customerObserverViews corresponding to the Ids specified by the user, within the specified time range. Since the resolution of the signal is given by the configuration on the server, the api only requires the id of the CustomerObserverView and a timestamps between which the data are required to be able to retrieve a correct values. The client must, however, know in advance the resolution of each CustomerObserverView. This information is provided by an administrator,and it is also returned, along with the retrieved values themselves,in each call to this method.

The specified time range is broken down into smaller periods of time, based on the resolution, and each of these periods corresponds to a return value. The values provided by this method are closing values. This means for each of the values which are returned, within that time range, the value for a certain period of time is calculated during the period and is not available until all underlying data for the period has been taken into account at the end of the period. For example, if the resolution of the view is 24 hours there will be at most one value per 24 hour period and each value will be calculated at the end of each 24 hour period. If a 24 hour period starts at 08:00 on June 2nd, 2011, the value for '2011-06-02 08:00' will be available at just after 08:00 on 3rd of June. If you try to retrieve a values before they have been calculated this method will return an error.

To retrieve a set of values you should call this method with the timestamps corresponding to the range in time for which you would like to retrieve the signal values. The calculated values, given the configured resolution, will be returned. If you do not know the resolution of a CustomerObserverView you can find it in the returned data after each call as it will always return the configuration information along with any value.
