GET /api/repository_ids_for_setting_metadata

Displays a collection (list) of repository ids ordered for setting metadata.

Parameters:
  • key – the API key of the Tool Shed user.
  • (optional) (my_writable) – if the API key is associated with an admin user in the Tool Shed, setting this param value to True will restrict resetting metadata to only repositories that are writable by the user in addition to those repositories of type tool_dependency_definition. This param is ignored if the current user is not an admin user, in which case this same restriction is automatic.
reset_metadata_on_repositories(trans, *args, **kwargs)[source]

PUT /api/repositories/reset_metadata_on_repositories

Resets all metadata on all repositories in the Tool Shed in an “orderly fashion”. Since there are currently only two repository types (tool_dependecy_definition and unrestricted), the order in which metadata is reset is repositories of type tool_dependecy_definition first followed by repositories of type unrestricted, and only one pass is necessary. If a new repository type is introduced, the process will undoubtedly need to be revisited. To facilitate this order, an in-memory list of repository ids that have been processed is maintained.

Parameters:key – the API key of the Tool Shed user.

The following parameters can optionally be included in the payload. :param my_writable (optional): if the API key is associated with an admin user in the Tool Shed, setting this param value

to True will restrict resetting metadata to only repositories that are writable by the user in addition to those repositories of type tool_dependency_definition. This param is ignored if the current user is not an admin user, in which case this same restriction is automatic.
Parameters:
  • (optional) (skip_file) – a list of encoded repository ids for repositories that should not be processed.
  • (optional) – A local file name that contains the encoded repository ids associated with repositories to skip. This param can be used as an alternative to the above encoded_ids_to_skip.
reset_metadata_on_repository(trans, *args, **kwargs)[source]

PUT /api/repositories/reset_metadata_on_repository

Resets all metadata on a specified repository in the Tool Shed.

Parameters:key – the API key of the Tool Shed user.
