# NubesGen REST API reference

# Generating a project using cURL

To automate your workflow, you don't need to use a Web interface! Use cURL to directly download and use your NubesGen configuration.

To generate a default application:

curl "https://nubesgen.com/demo.tgz" | tar -xzvf -

or (as a .zip file):

curl "https://nubesgen.com/demo.zip" | jar xv

If you want to pass some parameters in POST:

curl "https://nubesgen.com/demo.tgz" -d '{ "region": "westeurope", "database": { "type": "MYSQL", "tier": "BASIC"}}' -H "Content-Type: application/json"  | tar -xzvf -

If you want to pass some parameters in GET:

curl "https://nubesgen.com/demo.tgz?region=westeurope&database=mysql" | tar -xzvf -

# Application name

The name of the application is in the name of the file that you download:

curl "https://nubesgen.com/my-wonderful-application.tgz" | tar -xzvf -
  • The application name would be my-wonderful-application in this example.
  • As a result, all Azure resources will use that name, following the Recommended abbreviations for Azure resource types (opens new window). For example, those resources will be created in a resource group named rg-my-wonderful-application-01.
  • If you use the .tgz suffix, your application will be downloaded as a gzipped tar file, that you can uncompress with the tar -xzvf my-wonderful-application.tgz command.
  • If you use the .zip suffix, your application will be downloaded as a zip file, that you can uncompress with the unzip my-wonderful-application.zip command.

If you use the default demo name for your application, in order to avoid name clashes inside Azure, NubesGen will generate a random string and append it to your project name.

If you download:

curl "https://nubesgen.com/demo.tgz" | tar -xzvf -

Then your application name will be something similar to demo-1234-5678-9012.

# Tiers

Application types and databases have different tiers.

  • Each resource type has its own specific tiers.
  • NubesGen provides the main available tiers for running development and production workloads.
  • For each of those tiers, NubesGen configures the least expensive option possible. If you want to upgrade your resource, you'll need to modify the Terraform configuration (our recommended solution) or modify the resource using the Azure portal.
  • If no tier is provided, NubesGen will use the least expensive one.

We provide the following tiers per resource type:

Resource type Available tiers Example
APP_SERVICE FREE, BASIC, STANDARD https://nubesgen.com/demo.tgz?application=app_service.standard
FUNCTION CONSUMPTION, PREMIUM https://nubesgen.com/demo.tgz?application=function.premium
SQL_SERVER SERVERLESS, GENERAL_PURPOSE https://nubesgen.com/demo.tgz?database=sql_server.general_purpose
MYSQL BASIC, GENERAL_PURPOSE https://nubesgen.com/demo.tgz?database=mysql.general_purpose
POSTGRESQL BASIC, GENERAL_PURPOSE https://nubesgen.com/demo.tgz?database=postgresql.general_purpose

# Add-ons

You can add "addons", which are specific technologies added to your stack:
