PNDA-4615 - Getting issue details... STATUS


PNDA supports creation of different applications using different data-processing platforms/tools like spark, flink, oozie.

Currently, PNDA doesn't have the support to do any other action on the application apart from start/stop. As these data-processing platforms/tools evolves, there would be a need to perform various actions on these applications. For example, in Flink, a user would want an easy way for Triggering, Listing, Resuming & Disposing of Savepoints for a chosen application.

PNDA may have to enhance applications of spark, oozie, etc in future to support different kinds of actions (not necessarily related to Savepoints alone). 

This leads to a generic design of handling actions based on the application type without impacting the user experience of PNDA console UI.


Flink Savepoints related actions (Triggering, Listing, Resuming & Disposing) would be implemented with a generic design with actions & the required information is driven through deployment manager API. console-front-end code goes through minimum/no changes for every new action type.

Flink Savepoints is a feature provided by flink for streaming applications to take snapshot of current running state of application and store the metadata in specified directory. Using the metadata user can create a new instance of running application. 


console-frontend would be getting the list of additional actions for an application based on application and each action will be handled by separate API. 

  • GET /applications/application/action/list
    This returns below values for each action
    • id 
    • category 
    • name
    • description
    • input(s)
      • name
      • type
        • single-select (to indicate that UI can use radio buttons for display)
          • options (set of values)
        • multi-select  (to indicate that UI can use check boxes for display)
          • options (set of values)
        • text (to indicate that UI can use a text box for display)
    • http-method (GET/POST/PUT to be used when initiating the action)

For a category of actions related to savepoint, each of them to have a separate API like below:

  • GET /applications/application/savepoint/list
  • POST /applications/application/savepoint/trigger
  • PUT /applications/application/savepoint/dispose
  • PUT /applications/application/savepoint/restore

List of More actions:

List Savepoints:

Restore/Dispose Savepoint:

JSON template for action list is here.

User Experience

Action agnostic implementation at console front end to have a seamless user experience for all actions across flink, spark, oozie, etc.


console-front-end to have action specific code.
