Description

Endpoints is a collection of endpoints that implement the actual service. Example: Name: "mysvc", Subsets: [ { Addresses: [{"ip": "10.10.1.1"}, {"ip": "10.10.2.2"}], Ports: [{"name": "a", "port": 8675}, {"name": "b", "port": 309}] }, { Addresses: [{"ip": "10.10.3.3"}], Ports: [{"name": "a", "port": 93}, {"name": "b", "port": 76}] }, ]

Specification

Property Type Description

apiVersion

string

APIVersion defines the versioned schema of this representation of an object. Servers should convert recognized schemas to the latest internal value, and may reject unrecognized values. More info: https://git.k8s.io/community/contributors/devel/sig-architecture/api-conventions.md#resources

kind

string

Kind is a string value representing the REST resource this object represents. Servers may infer this from the endpoint the client submits requests to. Cannot be updated. In CamelCase. More info: https://git.k8s.io/community/contributors/devel/sig-architecture/api-conventions.md#types-kinds

metadata

ObjectMeta

Standard object’s metadata. More info: https://git.k8s.io/community/contributors/devel/sig-architecture/api-conventions.md#metadata

subsets

array

The set of all endpoints is the union of all subsets. Addresses are placed into subsets according to the IPs they share. A single address with multiple ports, some of which are ready and some of which are not (because they come from different containers) will result in the address being displayed in different subsets for the different ports. No address will appear in both Addresses and NotReadyAddresses in the same subset. Sets of addresses and ports that comprise a service.

subsets[]

object

EndpointSubset is a group of addresses with a common set of ports. The expanded set of endpoints is the Cartesian product of Addresses x Ports. For example, given: { Addresses: [{"ip": "10.10.1.1"}, {"ip": "10.10.2.2"}], Ports: [{"name": "a", "port": 8675}, {"name": "b", "port": 309}] } The resulting set of endpoints can be viewed as: a: [ 10.10.1.1:8675, 10.10.2.2:8675 ], b: [ 10.10.1.1:309, 10.10.2.2:309 ]

API endpoints

The following API endpoints are available:

  • /api/v1/endpoints

    • GET: list or watch objects of kind Endpoints

  • /api/v1/watch/endpoints

    • GET: watch individual changes to a list of Endpoints. deprecated: use the 'watch' parameter with a list operation instead.

  • /api/v1/namespaces/{namespace}/endpoints

    • DELETE: delete collection of Endpoints

    • GET: list or watch objects of kind Endpoints

    • POST: create Endpoints

  • /api/v1/watch/namespaces/{namespace}/endpoints

    • GET: watch individual changes to a list of Endpoints. deprecated: use the 'watch' parameter with a list operation instead.

  • /api/v1/namespaces/{namespace}/endpoints/{name}

    • DELETE: delete Endpoints

    • GET: read the specified Endpoints

    • PATCH: partially update the specified Endpoints

    • PUT: replace the specified Endpoints

  • /api/v1/watch/namespaces/{namespace}/endpoints/{name}

    • GET: watch changes to an object of kind Endpoints. deprecated: use the 'watch' parameter with a list operation instead, filtered to a single item with the 'fieldSelector' parameter.

/api/v1/endpoints

Table 1. Global query parameters
Parameter Type Description

allowWatchBookmarks

boolean

allowWatchBookmarks requests watch events with type "BOOKMARK". Servers that do not implement bookmarks may ignore this flag and bookmarks are sent at the server's discretion. Clients should not assume bookmarks are returned at any specific interval, nor may they assume the server will send any BOOKMARK event during a session. If this is not a watch, this field is ignored.

continue

string

The continue option should be set when retrieving more results from the server. Since this value is server defined, clients may only use the continue value from a previous query result with identical query parameters (except for the value of continue) and the server may reject a continue value it does not recognize. If the specified continue value is no longer valid whether due to expiration (generally five to fifteen minutes) or a configuration change on the server, the server will respond with a 410 ResourceExpired error together with a continue token. If the client needs a consistent list, it must restart their list without the continue field. Otherwise, the client may send another list request with the token received with the 410 error, the server will respond with a list starting from the next key, but from the latest snapshot, which is inconsistent from the previous list results - objects that are created, modified, or deleted after the first list request will be included in the response, as long as their keys are after the "next key".

This field is not supported when watch is true. Clients may start a watch from the last resourceVersion value returned by the server and not miss any modifications.

fieldSelector

string

A selector to restrict the list of returned objects by their fields. Defaults to everything.

labelSelector

string

A selector to restrict the list of returned objects by their labels. Defaults to everything.

limit

integer

limit is a maximum number of responses to return for a list call. If more items exist, the server will set the `continue` field on the list metadata to a value that can be used with the same initial query to retrieve the next set of results. Setting a limit may return fewer than the requested amount of items (up to zero items) in the event all requested objects are filtered out and clients should only use the presence of the continue field to determine whether more results are available. Servers may choose not to support the limit argument and will return all of the available results. If limit is specified and the continue field is empty, clients may assume that no more results are available. This field is not supported if watch is true.

The server guarantees that the objects returned when using continue will be identical to issuing a single list call without a limit - that is, no objects created, modified, or deleted after the first request is issued will be included in any subsequent continued requests. This is sometimes referred to as a consistent snapshot, and ensures that a client that is using limit to receive smaller chunks of a very large result can ensure they see all possible objects. If objects are updated during a chunked list the version of the object that was present at the time the first list result was calculated is returned.

pretty

string

If 'true', then the output is pretty printed.

resourceVersion

string

resourceVersion sets a constraint on what resource versions a request may be served from. See https://kubernetes.io/docs/reference/using-api/api-concepts/#resource-versions for details.

Defaults to unset

resourceVersionMatch

string

resourceVersionMatch determines how resourceVersion is applied to list calls. It is highly recommended that resourceVersionMatch be set for list calls where resourceVersion is set See https://kubernetes.io/docs/reference/using-api/api-concepts/#resource-versions for details.

Defaults to unset

timeoutSeconds

integer

Timeout for the list/watch call. This limits the duration of the call, regardless of any activity or inactivity.

watch

boolean

Watch for changes to the described resources and return them as a stream of add, update, and remove notifications. Specify resourceVersion.

limit

integer

limit is a maximum number of responses to return for a list call. If more items exist, the server will set the `continue` field on the list metadata to a value that can be used with the same initial query to retrieve the next set of results. Setting a limit may return fewer than the requested amount of items (up to zero items) in the event all requested objects are filtered out and clients should only use the presence of the continue field to determine whether more results are available. Servers may choose not to support the limit argument and will return all of the available results.

The server guarantees that the objects returned when using continue will be identical to issuing a single list call without a limit - that is, no objects created, modified, or deleted after the first request is issued will be included in any subsequent continued requests. This is sometimes referred to as a consistent snapshot, and ensures that a client that is using limit to receive smaller chunks of a very large result can ensure they see all possible objects.
