When wis2box starts, the API provisioning environment is initialized. At this stage, the following steps are required:
station metadata has been configured
discovery metadata has been created
data pipelines are configured and running
Let’s dive into publishing the data and metadata:
Station metadata API publishing¶
The first step is to publish our station metadata to the API. The command below will generate local station collection GeoJSON for API publication.
wis2box metadata station publish-collection
This command also runs automatically at startup and thereafter every 10 minutes to keep your stations up to date.
Discovery metadata API publishing¶
This step will publish dataset discovery metadata to the API.
wis2box metadata discovery publish /path/to/discovery-metadata.yml
To unpublish discovery metadata from the API:
wis2box metadata discovery unpublish metadata-id
metadata-id is the
metadata.identifier value in your
Dataset collection API publishing¶
The below command will add the dataset collection to pygeoapi from the discovery metadata MCF created as described in the Discovery metadata section.
wis2box data add-collection $WIS2BOX_DATADIR/data/config/foo/bar/baz/discovery-metadata.yml
Deleting a dataset¶
To delete a dataset from the API backend and configuration:
wis2box data delete-collection dataset-id
Changes to the API configuration are reflected and updated automatically.
At this point, you have successfully published the required data and metadata collections to the API.
