agX Platform API Client

Gem Version

Ruby client for accessing Proagrica's agX Platform APIs.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'agx'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install agx


agX Content API

Setup agX Content Client (OAuth 2 Client Credentials Flow)

@agx_content_client =
  client_id: "your_client_id",
  client_secret: "your_client_secret",
  version: "v1"  # optional
  prod: true # optional, false for QA
  access_token: "token_if_stored", # optional
  expires_at: "token_expires_at_if_stored" # optional

Make get requests for Content API resources

# @agx_content_client.get("ResourceName", params_hash)
# => 'parsed_json_response_body'

crops = @agx_content_client.get("Crop")

# Passing in publishDate as param
weeds = @agx_content_client.get("Weed", {publishDate: date.to_s})

agX Sync API

Setup agX Sync Client (OAuth 2.0 / OpenID Connect 1.0 Authorization Code Flow)

This requires that you have already previously authenticated and authorized a user to agX with required scopes through the authorization code grant flow process and have persisted their sync ID, access token, refresh token, and access token expiration timestamp.

@agx_sync_client =
  client_id: "your_client_id",
  client_secret: "your_client_secret",
  version: "v4",  # optional
  sync_id: "agx_user_sync_id",
  access_token: "agx_user_agx_token",
  refresh_token: "agx_user_refresh_token",
  token_expires_at: "access_token_expiration_timestamp",
  transaction_id: "agx_user_previous_transaction_id", # optional
  prod: true # optional, false for QA

Initiate a sync transaction, make Sync API requests, and end transaction

# To make calls without starting a transaction for resources that don't
# require it, use the get_nt method
# @agx_sync_client.get_nt("Resource", start_time)
# => 'parsed_json_response_body'
growers = @agx_sync_client.get_nt("Grower")

# To make calls that require transactions (sync locking), call start_transaction
# and then use the get method to call for the resource. You should persist
# transaction ID per user until transaction is successfully ended by call
# to end_transaction
transaction_id = @agx_sync_client.start_transaction

# @agx_sync_client.get("Resource", start_time)
# => 'parsed_json_response_body'
growers = @agx_sync_client.get("Grower")

# Get all farms accessible for a grower
farms = @agx_sync_client.get("Grower/#{grower.guid}/Farm")

# Get all server changes on farms accessible for a grower since start_time
farms = @agx_sync_client.get("Grower/#{grower.guid}/Farm", last_sync_date.to_s)

# Put (insert) a new Grower
now =
new_grower = {
  "SyncID": @agx_sync_client.sync_id,
  "ID": SecureRandom.uuid,
  "Name": "MYNEWGROWER",
  "ModifiedOn": now,
  "CreatedOn": now,
  "CreatorID": @agx_sync_client.sync_id,
  "EditorID": @agx_sync_client.sync_id,
  "SchemaVersion": "4.0"

@client.put("Grower", new_grower.to_json)

# etc...


# clear the persisted transaction ID for user after ending sync transaction
user_transaction_id = nil
