Stripe Authorization In Open Event API Server

The Open Event System supports payments through stripe. Stripe is a suite of APIs that powers commerce for businesses of all sizes. This blogpost covers testing of Stripe Authorization Schema and endpoints in the API Server.

The Stripe Authorization class provides the following endpoints:

'/stripe-authorization'
'/stripe-authorization/<int:id>'
'/events/<int:event_id>/stripe-authorization'
'/events/<event_identifier>/stripe-authorization'


In the pull request made for adding documentation and tests, these two endpoints were removed:

'stripe_authorization_list',
'/events/<int:event_id>/stripe-authorization',
'/events/<event_identifier>/stripe-authorization'

This is because each event can have only one stripe authorization, so there can not exist a list of stripe authorization objects related to an event.

The ‘stripe_authorization_list’ endpoint is made POST only. This is because Open Event does not allow individual resources’ list to be accessible. Since, there is no endpoint which returns a list of Stripe Authorizations the StripeAuthorizationList(ResourceListis removed.

The ResourceDetail class was modified to add a query to support  results from ‘/events/<int:event_id>/stripe-authorization’ endpoint suThe view_kwargs for the detail endpoint has to contain the resource id, so event_id from view_kwags is used to get the id for stripe authorization.

stripe_authorization = self.session.query(StripeAuthorization).filter_by(event_id=view_kwargs['event_id']).one()
view_kwargs['id'] = stripe_authorization.id

Writing Test for Documentation

(Tests for the /events/1/stripe-authorization  is described here, for others please refer to links in additional references.)

To test the  /events/1/stripe-authorization endpoint for GET, we first insert a Stripe Authorization object into the database which will then be retrieved by the GET request and then compared with the expected response body from the documentation file.

Since stripe-auth has a required relationship with event class, an event must also exist for strie auth object to be created. The event is also required because the endpoint ‘events/’ expects an event object to exist. The StripeAuthorizationFactory takes care of this with event as a RelatedFactory. So when a StripeAuthorization object is inserted, an event is created first and passed as the required relationship to stripe_list_post endpoint.

The event is related to the stripe object by setting event_id = 1 in the factory.

Adding the pre-test hook for GET:

@hooks.before("StripeAuthorization > Stripe Authorization for an Event > Get Stripe Authorization Details of an Event")
def event_stripe_authorization_get_detail(transaction):
   """
   GET /events/1/stripe-authorization
   :param transaction:
   :return:
   """
   with stash['app'].app_context():
       stripe = StripeAuthorizationFactory()
       db.session.add(stripe)
       db.session.commit()


The expected response for this request can be found

Keep updating Build status in Meilix Generator

One of the problems we faced while working Meilix Generator was to provide user with the status of the custom ISO build in the Meilix Generator web app so we came up with the idea of checking the status of the link generated by the web app. If the link is available the status code would be 200 otherwise it would be 404.

We have used python script for checking the status of URL. For generating URL, we use the tag name which will be used as a variable to generate the URL of the unique event user wants the ISO for and the date will help in generation of link rest of the link remains the same.

tag = os.environ["TRAVIS_TAG"]
date = datetime.datetime.now().strftime('%Y%m%d')
url=https://github.com/xeon-zolt/meilix/releases/download/"+tag+"/meilix-zesty-"+date+"-i386.iso"

 

Now we will use urllib for monitoring the status of link.

req = Request(url)
    try:
        response = urlopen(req)
    except HTTPError as e:
        return('Building Your Iso')
    except URLError as e:
        return('We failed to reach the server.')
    else:
        return('Build Sucessful : ' + url)

 

After monitoring the status the next step was to update the status dynamically on the status page.

So we’llll use a status function in the flask app which is used by JavaScript to get status of the link after intervals of time.

Flask :

@app.route('/now')
def status_url():
    return (status())

 

Javascript:

<script type ="text/javascript">
let url ="/now"
function getstatus(url)
{
    fetch(url).then(function(response){
        return response.text()
    }).then(function(text){
        console.log("status",text)
        document.querySelector("div#status")
        .innerHTML = text
    })
    }
window.onload = function(){
    fetch(url).then(function(response){
        return response.text()
    }).then(function(text){
        console.log("status",text)
        document.querySelector("div#status")
        .innerHTML = text
    })
    window.setInterval(getstatus.bind(null,url),30*1000)
}
/*setInterval(function,interval in millsecs)*/
</script>

 

This covers various steps to prompt user whether the build is ready or not.
